Today on the live stream I had the opportunity to test out a web app that @OleHenrik has been developing. It generates lower thirds from YouTube Live chat questions. The questions are flagged by a moderator (or producer) and then the host can choose which to answer on their live stream.
Look at how cool it is:
A beautiful static webpage with lower third is generated and updates for each question selected. The lower third includes YouTube username, avatar and the chat question itself.
The static webpage can easily be added to streaming software like OBS Studio using the BrowserSource overlay. This app is a great way to increase interaction on any YouTube Live stream.
Watch me using it on a live stream here: https://youtu.be/QQjGo6rGmYI?t=15m30s
It’s also completely free and open-source. It’s still very much in beta so if you know some code and can help please contribute back to the project on GitHub.
Otherwise, enjoy and leave a reply if you decide to try it out for yourself or need any help getting it working!
@OleHenrik you are awesome!
