How to Live Stream to YouTube using NDI with OBS Studio

admin • June 30, 2021
In this article we will review the steps to establish a live stream to YouTube from your Camera’s NDI feed using OBS Studio. It is assumed that your camera is connected to your LAN and has an IP address that is compatible with your router's settings. If this has not been done refer to our knowledge base articles on addressing your camera here or here. The NDI protocol from Newtek offers a powerful way to distribute video content on your network using an IP stream. In addition to high-quality video and low latency, NDI allows users to take advantage of OBS Studio's Virtual Camera and easily link their camera to YouTube Live. Step 1: Add your NDI camera to OBS Studio.
