    Hello can you attach some screenshot of OBS setting from 1 PC? Like bit rate etc?

    I’m sry i may be dumb but how do i stream without a virtual machine? I have 2 PC one with Quick sync and one with a decent CPU …how do i connect the stream from the first pc to the second … Through VLC ok but you could show that too :(

    are there special requirments for a external hardwear encoder or can i just use any? if i want to buy one?

    id alos like to know what to set the first pcs obs settings to, to stream to the nginx server? how does the push command look like? rtmp:// ?

    • RobinJack0r says:

      The address is always your second PC`s IP, combined with the application name that was set in the nginx.conf, so for example:
      rtmp:// (and for example playpath/streamkey “test”).
      To watch the stream you could then use rtmp://

        Tahnk you alot. and and if i want to send it to twitch, is it than like i have to push it to rtmp:// Profile Url?)

        • RobinJack0r says:

          For Twitch it would be something like: push rtmp://;
 is the amsterdam server for example, you can get a list of all servers on for example. And obviously replace streamkey with the streamkey you can get on your twitchdashboard, live_xyz…

    What do I put in for the FMS URL on the gaming pc OBS? Is it it the nginx server ip? And if that is the case, how do I find the nginx server ip?

    Is there any merit to use this kind of setup as you still need to encode the video from your first pc send it to nginx and than encode a second time to send it to twitch from your first pc ?

    • RobinJack0r says:

      If possible you use a hardware encoder (QuickSync or NVENC) on the first PC and produce a high bitrate stream that uses low resources. Then on the second PC you can use all power you have to compress the video for a livestream output and do not need a CaptureCard. (These can be expensive for higher resolutions and framerates)
      If no hardware encoder is available you can use the superfast/ultrafast preset to lower the resource usage on PC1 but in some cases a 2PC Capture Card setup will of course perform better.
