After you have downloaded and installed OBS, and finished the initial settings such as the theme and language of the main screen, use an in-camera or web camera to actually project yourself on the screen.
Use a video capture device.
Select a video capture device and project it with the camera.
Click on the “+” mark below the source to select the video capture device.
Click OK to create a new device. The device name is initially [Video Capture Device], but you can change it later.
Using the built-in camera of your computer
The above picture shows the properties screen of the video capture device.
If your computer has a built-in camera, the name of the built-in camera will be displayed in the device field.
In my case, USB 2.0 Camera is the built-in camera name, so I left it as it is.
The OBS window will show your reflection in the in-camera image of your computer.
You can move the in-camera image freely by dragging the image, and you can zoom in and out by dragging the eight red dots.
We will change the name of the video capture device to in-camera to make it easier to understand later.
You can change the name by right-clicking on the video capture device ⇒ Rename.
Using an external web camera
If you have another external web camera, try to connect it at the same time.
Connect the webcam to the USB port of your computer and go to “+” ⇒ Video Capture Device as before, and select the name of the connected webcam in the device field.
We have connected a web camera named HD Webcam eMeet C960.
The web camera image will appear as shown on the screen. It is placed on the left side of the computer.
After clicking OK, the web camera image will appear in the main window. I named it “External Webcam” as I saw fit.
In my case, only the video from the external web camera was choppy for some reason. If you are experiencing the same problem, please check out how you can improve the choppy video.
Project multiple images like a wipe screen.
In addition to the basic large screen that you often see in videos and TV, there is also a small screen, right? This is the wipe, the small screen that shows the face of a celebrity or distributor.
Wipe screens can also be easily arranged.
The in-camera is now hidden, but you can check both images by placing it in front of the external webcam image.
With the in-camera selected, click the upward-pointing △ next to the gear icon below the source.
This will change the order of the sources, placing the in-camera at the front and the webcam behind it.
You can zoom in and out and move around in the same way.
With the Nintendo DS connected and the capture device name set to Switch, three screens are shown simultaneously.
In the source order, the higher up you go, the more the images are placed in the front. The image of the switch is placed at the far end of the screen.
By the way, you will need a separate capture board to project the game screen.
The volume gauge is working, but for some reason you can’t hear the sound even if you turn up the volume on the computer itself, so try to make sound from the computer running OBS.
