Cyberia hosts an instance of owncast at https://stream.cyberia.club/ for members to stream video games, meetings, and other real-time video content. This is similar to twitch.tv, 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 https://obsproject.com/ or download the source code from github: https://github.com/obsproject/obs-studio

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://stream.cyberia.club 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.cyberia.club/<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
