How Can I Stream My Church Service With Hymn Lyrics and Text?

OBS

Episode 1695

Chad from Albertville, NY

Chad runs the streaming computer at his church, and while the setup is decent with two projectors and two monitors, he wants to be able to capture the projector display for the stream for home viewers. He's using OBS. Leo says that OBS is very popular with people on Twitch. Leo says it's possible that the computer isn't powerful enough to do all that, plus capture and stream the projector feed. Leo says it may be better to output those displays using Powerpoint with a matrix switcher. Not very expensive. Then you can have one feed going to both.

Scott says the big challenge is going to be how well the lighting, sound and camera work will be.

What's the Best 4K Streaming Box?

Roku

Episode 1685

Mark from Los Angeles, CA

Which is better, the NVIDIA Shield or the Roku Ultra? Leo says both are 4K streaming devices. Leo really likes the Nvidia Shield. It's got the Integra processor and runs Android TV. But Roku has more channels and is 1/3 of the price. NVIDIA though, has better gaming, if you're into that. But if not, then the Roku Ultra is a better buy. How about mesh routers? Leo says that the Netgear Orbi has Wifi 6, but it's pretty expensive. The Eero is "smarter," in Leo's opinion.

Harold from West Covina, CA

Harold's father is tired of paying $200 a month to watch TV on cable. So he wants to cut the cord. He's looking at the FireTV with Sling. Leo says that the FireTV is fine, but they are engineered to encourage buying stuff from Amazon. Leo prefers the Roku player. There's also the Apple TV. Leo also recommends YouTubeTV for his local channels and other streaming options. Sling is another that's good; AT&T has one, but Leo's favorite is YouTube TV. It's $50. But that, on top of the internet, and you're already over $100.

It's called OTT (Over the Top). These days, OTT services include YouTube TV, SLING, DirecTV Go. And you can always log into them online remotely and airplay.

How can I stream my church service live?

Vimeo

Episode 1682

Johnny from Atlanta, GA

Johnny streams his church's services. But he'd like to do it live. Leo says you can stream to YouTube and they will not only stream live, but it will then save it for viewing later. Automatically. Is Vimeo better though? Leo says that the quality is better, but it's not free to use. Vimeo Pro really isn't that expensive, though. Facebook Live is another option. Can he use Premiere Elements instead of Adobe Premiere Pro? Leo says yes. It does about 80% of what Creative Cloud does. And there's Adobe Rush. That's free and can work from a mobile device.

Apple TV

Episode 1681

Mike from Portland, OR

Mike wants to know how to stream workout videos from his iPhone to his TV. Leo says that using Airplay is great, but he will need an Apple TV to do it. He can connect a phone to the TV directly by using a lightning adapter. But Apple Airplay with Apple TV is the ideal method. Android can also do it if the TV is compatible with it. Samsung, though, tends to only work well with Samsung TVs.
