Cyberia hosts an instance of owncast at for members to stream video games, meetings, and other real-time video content. This is similar to, but we own & operate it from the ground up.

#Getting a stream key

In order to stream, you will need to request the streaming key from a member of cyberia.

#Streaming with OBS

OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) is the most common and easiest way to stream from your PC. You can download it from or download the source code from github:

When you set up OBS for the first time, you will be prompted to configure a streaming destination.

Select Custom... and then enter the url rtmp:// plus the stream key.


#Streaming with ffmpeg

To stream a file from start to finish with ffmpeg:

ffmpeg -re -i video.mp4 -vcodec libx264 -vprofile baseline -g 30 -acodec aac -strict -2 -f flv rtmp://<stream-key>

To start at a particular minute of the file, add the following flag right after ffmpeg:

# start 20 minutes in
-ss 00:20:00
