Connecting sources (VP)

Download OBS here for free. Useful information on how to connect other sources, like images or a browser can be found here. This article explains how to add the two most used sources, audio and video.

Audio input capture

The audio input capture allows you to add audio input, for example a microphone, to a live stream.
In OBS click on the plus sign in the tab 'Sources' and select the first option 'Audio Input Capture'.
Select 'Create new' and name it. Click on 'OK'.
Select the microphone and click on 'OK'.
The audio from the device will be captured when streaming or recording. Make sure to test the quality beforehand.

Video capture device

The video capture device allows you to add video input, for example a webcam, to a live stream.
In OBS click on the plus sign in the tab 'Sources' and select the option 'Video Capture Device'.
Select 'Create new' and name it. Click on 'OK'.
The settings can be left on default most of the time. Customize the settings when problems arise with the device. Consult this page when manually adjusting the settings. Select the video capture device and click on 'OK'.
The device will be captured when streaming or recording. Make sure to test the quality beforehand.
