How to run a live webinar with OBS

I am sure you have a cool intro and outro in your computer and you want to play them during your live webinar.

To play a video file from your Open Broadcaster Software, we are going to use their "Media Source" option. These are the file types that OBS currently supports:

  • Video: .mp4, .ts, .mov, .flv, .mkv, .avi, .gif, .webm
  • Audio: .mp3, .aac, .ogg, .wav

Open your OBS app. In "Sources" click on the "+" icon and from the options, select "Media Source". Give it any name you want, and then in "Local File", click on the "Browse" button to select a file from your computer.

As soon as you do that, the video will start playing in the preview.

That's pretty much it. You can now start your streaming and go live on youtube and run your live webinar this way.
