Easiest Dual PC Streaming Setup with OBS Teleport


Game streaming might seem to be easy until you actually do it. Then you checked your stream and noticed something is not right – the quality doesn’t look good, or the stream is stuttering, or worst, both. What you can do is either upgrade your PC, or buy another PC specifically built for streaming. Upgrading your PC “usually” solve these problems, that depends on the components you upgraded. But still, gaming and streaming in the same PC will at one point give you trouble and prevent you to fully enjoy gaming while streaming.

 

Why Do You Need 2 PCs for Streaming

Adding another PC for streaming takes away the streaming load from your gaming PC thus maximizing to potential of your gaming PC, resulting to smoother gaming experience without worrying for stuttering and FPS drops. This is most beneficial if you don’t have a not so powerful gaming PC and wants to play with high quality graphics possible. Another benefit is that you can tweak your streaming PC specifically for better quality, again, without the worries of FPS drops in your stream. Interacting with your viewers is also easier since you don’t have to switch back and forth between your game and your stream.

 

OBS Teleport

OBS Teleport is an OBS plugin that allows you to transmit scenes running in your OBS to another PC through local area network (LAN), that includes audio and video. And that scene is the scene that is going to fed in the streaming PC for live streaming. The main benefit is its simplicity, no need for the capture cards and cables to send audio and video from your gaming PC to your streaming PC. Just make sure your network router and cables can handle the load to transmit high quality audio and video.

 

 

At 1280×720 with 30 fps, you can get away with non-gigabit routers and Cat-5 ethernet cables as the signals sent/received is only 66 Mbps. But once you up the FPS to 60, or increase the resolution to 1920×1080, the signals reached 136 to 138 Mbps – you are now required to have gigabit router and at least Cat-5e cables. Sending audio and video at 1920×1080 with 60 fps reached 257 Mbps through the network, so if you want better quality and higher fps for your stream you will also need to upgrade your router and ethernet cables.
