I started live-streaming my gaming sessions a few months ago and have been using the NVENC encoding. I found that the quality wasn’t that great and I had a Ubuntu server around and I wanted to try to find out what I could do with it to help have better quality on my stream, and maybe record all my sessions with a higher quality.
I also didn’t want to buy a capture card or a Windows license for my server since I’m very comfortable with Ubuntu Server and didn’t have more usable hardware around.
Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS.
On it is installed nginx-rtmp and ffmpeg.
I use this computer for pretty much everything I do.
I use OBS with NVENC encoding.
