Thank you OBS Project

I am grateful for modern open source solutions. An hour ago I needed to get my mom streaming on The option she was using did not allow her webcam to show. So I did 40 seconds of web searching and discovered Open Broadcast Software. I installed it and ran through the wizard while barely reading what I was doing. A few minutes later she was streaming; both her game and her web cam.

I am glad that my mom is a content creator. I think there is a place on the internet for a senior citizen gamer. She tends to be a leader and a mentor in her gaming communities so she might as well have her little corner and platform. And as a bonus I get to admin her website and support her tech. Of course, I couldn’t do it without good open source projects like Open Broadcast Project.

My mom is online as mhahse57. Find her at and
