  1. Wondered if any of you guys had experience with this?

    I'm interested in a setup that will allow us (4 piece indie rock band) to stream great quality audio and video to facebook live from the rehearsal room.
    We'd just be showcasing tracks to engage some more followers and maybe lead to some more bookings.

    I like the idea of wearing a GoPro so the viewer gets a more immersive camera view (we won't have a cameraman and tripods are boring).

    I would then want to send the main mix from our mixing desk out.

    What hardware/ software would we need?
    I want to do this from my laptop by the way
  2. Look for OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) and use your laptop/desktop - should work with any outside camera and can likely take the sends from your mixer. You may also be able to use multiple cameras.

    quick youtube search found this annoying tutorial.
  3. Cheers Mo'phat. I shall take a look when I get home from work. Hopefully it's not too annoying!
