Your first DJ livestream to Facebook with OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) is not difficult to set up and in this article we’ll guide you through the process. As a DJ you want to let as much people as possible hear you play. Live streaming your DJ set gives you an opportunity to broadcast your music all over the world. This is an activity we have been doing for years, one of our monthly livestreams is Friday Naadt Live. This step-by-step overview is created from our experience and explains how to set up a high quality live stream with OBS studio on Facebook using a stream server and a stream key.
PRO tip: If you want to make sure you will have a recording of your DJ set, also record it in OBS by clicking on ‘Start recording’. This way, any copyright strikes or connection failures won’t hurt your performance and gives you the opportunity to share the DJ set to other platforms like Youtube.
Through the years we have gained a lot of experience with livestreaming and audio visual production. We practice three different concepts at the moment. If you want to see what kind of camera setups and backgrounds we use, navigate to our event page.
