OBS now interfaces with DEVOS and Arcus

The Open Broadcast Software project is a streaming and recording system that can be used with DEVOS and Arcus, thanks to the new DiscoverVideo OBS Plugin.

DiscoverVideo OBS Plugin

OBS Plugin for DEVOS and Arcus Video Platforms

The DiscoverVideo Plugin adds automation, remote status detection, instant account setup, video metadata, and automatic recorded video upload to the software.

The plugin just sits silently on your computer, visible in your system tray, ready to spring into action when called upon. Just like with DiscoverVideo Streamsie software, you only need to enter the account credentials and everything is automatically setup for you! Click on the Launch OBS link and you don’t even need to enter credentials!

The plugin is available now to all DiscoverVideo customers. When you install it on a Windows computer, it monitors OBS state and can even launch OBS for you. It automatically installs a DiscoverVideo profile so you are ready to stream and record with ease. The plugin for Apple Mac will be avilable soon.

OBS vs. Streamsie

Streamsie is great for quick streaming and recording and it features two video inputs, screen capture, recording, chroma key, and more. OBS provides the same, in a different way, but also supports multiple inputs. It is compatible with MISO and other Captiva capture devices. OBS is supported by the Open Source community while Streamise is supported by DiscoverVideo.

Cool Remote And Scheduled Operation

The plugin monitors the health of OBS. If OBS crashes, the plugin can automatically restart it. This is ideal for unattended remote operation because it gives you greater assurance your system will be ready when you need it.

Then when you select Stream, Record, or both on your DEVOS web page, OBS responds and even sends real-time status.

Use the DEVOS calendar to schedule a stream or recording. For “belts and suspenders” reliability, schedule the encoder to stream, record locally, and also record on the server. The OBS plugin will upload the video at the end of the event. Optionally it will delete the video after successful upload (so you don’t have to worry about running out of disk space). And DEVOS will automatically publish it. You can even swap between the two recordings on the server in case one or the the other was superior.

Launch It

DEVOS even provides links that launch Streamsie or OBS and setup the desired account information. You don’t have to copy-and-paste your account information, just click to stream.


So now you have a choice for software encoder: Streamsie or OBS. For reliable appliances you have Mantis or Spider. Want to stream live or record from iPhone or iPad? I recommend you use Streamsie iOS.
