Facebook Live stream Thursday 26th March 4pm GMT/UTC on how to stream to Facebook and YouTube with the Sony PXW-FS5 (also applies to many other Sony cameras with similar streaming options).
I will show you how to connect the camera to a network via Wi-Fi, how to send the stream from the camera to a computer. I will show you how to set up VLC to receive the stream from the camera and then how to use OBS to convert the FS5’s stream (via VLC) and send it to YouTube.
The “How To” live stream will be on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/alister.chapman.9. But if you also have YouTube you will be able to see the stream from the FS5 once it is connected and setup. Links will be shared during the presentation.
If you install VLC: https://www.videolan.org/
And OBS: https://obsproject.com/
Ahead of the session you should be able to set everything up as we go.

Does this work on FS7?
Will you make a recording available afterwards for those who cannot take part during the live event?
Thanks, Alistair this was a big help! I finally got it working following this guide whereas some other youtube videos confused the hell out of me.
I have tried to make this work using my mobile hotspot but can’t see the camera in VLC. Any suggestions?
