I actually can share a little advice here, I think. I don't have a PS4 but I do stream games I play on my Wii U. I few years back I bought a Hauppauge HD-PRVR2. The Wii U plugs into it via HDMI and then there is HDMI out to your TV. Then you plug it into a USB port on your computer and run the Hauppauge Capture software. Then you can do a window capture and crop to only the game content. There are lots of YouTube videos that describe how to do just this. So this is a way to stream from your console to your PC where you can do a lot more customization for your stream (adding overlays, webcam, the Extra Life Helper, etc) in OBS.
Here's a screenshot of my desktop so you can see how it works for me at a glance. I don't know what the PS4 can do for streaming but I hope this helps.
Hello! Soo I'm just starting up here on Extra Life, really looking forward to doing some 24 hour streams every weekend leading up to Game Day. The main problem I'm having right now is trying to figure out how to get overlays, banners and buttons on my stream. I found a couple work arounds like using OSB / restream and some other things that allow me to push my stream through another sitee / program and add add-ins through that. Only problem is I have no idea where to even begin I'm very new to streaming and Extra Life but I'm trying to do my best to help out
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! (Also, I'm looking for a digital artist to hopefully help me with a team logo/icon thingy)
Hey Birdperson (awesome handle, BTW): First, congrats on getting started with Extra Life for the first time!
This thread is mainly focused on the Extra Life Helper which is a donation alert and time tracking tool used by folks who stream on their PC or Mac. I'd suggest starting a brand new thread in this discussion area asking about tips for streaming from your PS4. People will see your question more easily and you'll get more help. Good luck!
