Re: Church Webcasts using YouTube Live Streams

I am using an old phone that does not have mobile network service. But after connecting to wifi, it still requires me use the internet to answer an authorization question before I can use the internet. How to I get past this problem trying to connect to the Liahona wifi at church? If you are referr...

Re: Notice to STS - Using Zoom Webinars...

The Meetinghouse Webcast page (MyWebcast) provides a nice one-stop place for ward members to go, with a link that remains the same, and the ability to control access based on Church Account. That said, I understand some of the benefits that could come with an off-the-shelf solution like Zoom. If lo...

Re: Church Webcasts using OBS

Make sure the Church server is ready to accept the video stream (in the Event Manager). If it is, double check the Stream URL and Stream Key and make sure they (exactly) match what you configured in OBS studio. With the "hostname not found" error, it's likely that the rtsp:// is incorrect ...

Re: Automating OBS with the Webcast Portal

In most (hopefully all) building there is a port labeled "Record Out." It's often under the sacrament table, a clerks' table, near the pulpit, or somewhere else (reasonably) convenient. For decades the Church has installed cassette tape recorders nearby so the meetings could be recorded fo...

Re: Automating OBS with the Webcast Portal

A few pictures of the setup. With the cable for direct audio feed, there's a little more cost, but each building in our Stake was equipped with $50 worth of upcycled computers with an additional Gig of RAM, using the built-in Webcams. Streaming starts and stops automatically, with manual control to ...

Re: Simple Fully Automated worship webcast with Meetinghouse Webcast

This looks exciting - I'm looking forward to trying it out. For anyone looking for an even lower-cost solution (I spent about $50 per building by using older model iMac computers (reformatted and running Ubuntu) purchased from the school district surplus a few years back), refer to this thread for a...

Re: Automating OBS with the Webcast Portal

That looks great, I'll dig in and try that out as well. The downside with that approach is about twice the cost of what I've set up, and the less-than-elegant "pull the plug" method of stopping for the Sacrament. With the $160 encoder, camera, cabling, and more, I'm confident this is more ...

Re: Help! Trying to connect to the chapel sound system

We also have one building with a broken "record out" jack. Going to ask the FM group to get it fixed, as tracing the cable with a telecom tone generator hasn't yielded any results. In the mean time, a long mic cable from the rack to the stream encoder does the trick.
