Well we went and did it: The Paladin, Plumpy Thimble, Shaun and I played D&D on the internet. It was a fun experience, and we learned a lot for next time, if there is a next time, like check if your mic is working right off the bat instead of waiting to hear from your little brother that there is no sound. Mr. Thimble has hosted the video for us on his YouTube channel, along with a brief explanation of what happened during the first 45 minutes.
We got this setup working with a great free software package for streaming OBS Studio (OBS = Open Broadcaster Software). It is a little finicky, like the fact if you open and close it you need to re-add your mics, but the price is right, and it is very easy to use, so if you want to start streaming it is a great way to test the waters without spending your hard earned cash. It works to just record your video, or stream it to YouTube, Twitch, or Mixer. We could only get three cameras working, but that was because of my Surface Book’s hardware limitations, not OBS.
Anyway, if you want, you should check out our little adventure above. Though I won’t be hurt if you don’t. The other guys might take it personally though.
