My Streaming Setup and Electronics Tools Collection

Hello everyone!

As many of you ask about the tools I am using for twitch streams as well as what electronics related tools I am using. I decided it was time to put together a blog post for that. I will likely keep updating this specific post when my streaming setup evolves or I need to add more content. This blog post is derived and updated version of the Gist that I posted a while ago.

This post is currently reflecting the gear I am using in May 2020. If you think anything is missing from this list or it is not up to date any more. Feel free to ping me and I will do my best to update the list! 🙂

Computer

Currently I use the same computer for streaming and on stream desktop content. This is not an ideal setup and if you can afford it I do recommend setting up a separate computer for content and encoding/streaming. It is fairly easy to cause streaming issues if you do compilation or other CPU/GPU/Memory intensive tasks on stream.

1BitSquared and other stuff

If you like what you see and would like to support the streams and development of new open source devices, but you already have all the 1BitSquared hardware you need, you can support me through Patreon and/or Twitch subscriptions.

You can reach me through twitter and on our 1BitSquared Discord server. I hope this list is useful.

Cheers,
