Main Open Broadcaster Screen
The main sources are
- Video Capture Device
- Mic (optional)
Video Capture Device
To add the video capture device click on the "+" in the sources frame. In the Device dropdown select the capture device. NOTE: only one software can use one capture device at one time. This means that if the capture device is used by software other than Open Broadcast you will not see the ultrasound video in Open Broadcaster. Once the device is selected just hit OK and go back to the main screen.
With the ultrasound turned on stretch the window to maximize the size of the screen displaying the ultrasound video. This is done by clicking on the window where it is displayed and you will see the window with a red border around it with circles in the corners. Grab the corners and pull the images to stretch. To crop out the controls select border with the ALT key and pull the border in.
Add the music by clicking the "+" under Sources and choose Media. Then select the desired .mp3 file(s). If this is the approach, ensure the Music source is unmuted and the other audio sources are muted. This is done from the Mixer frame in the main window.
Another option is to have music playing from a music service and just unmute the Desktop Audio in the Mixer.
Add the logo by clicking the "+" under Sources and choose Image. Select the logo and position and size as desired.
If you would like to record the heartbeat, you attach a mic to the streaming computer. When you want to record the heartbeat just mute the Music and unmute the Mic in the Mixer. Then place the mic near the ultrasound speaker and record the heartbeat. When done just mute the mic and unmute the Music.
The only setting on this tab change is to check "Automatically record when streaming"
In the Stream tab the first dropdown is "Custom Streaming Server." Next the Url is the rtmp url for the location. You can get that setting from the Event screen. When you create an Event or view an Event the rtmp url is visible. The stream key is the UID (customer number) and is also listed in the Event. Lastly, the Use Authentication should be unchecked.
The recording path should point to the path Videos/BabyFlix Streams. The Recording Quality should be Same As Stream. The Recording Format should be .mp4.
The only setting that needs to be changed is the Output. For the creation of Intro accounts in BabyFlix the Output Resolution should be set in the 700's x 400's. For Basic and Premium accounts this resolution can be increased.
In the Advanced tab just make sure the priority is set to Above Normal or High.
