External Encoders and OBS

External encoders, such as OBS, allow you to push a higher quality stream to Chaturbate by giving your more control over the encoding settings for your broadcast.   High definition streams up to 4k are supported through external encoding.


What is an external encoder?


Encoding is the process of converting the data from your camera into a stream that can be sent over the Internet and then decoded in your viewer’s browser.  There are multiple software or hardware encoders available and can be used to broadcast on Chaturbate if capable of RTMP output.   Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) is an open source tool which is free to download and use on Windows, Mac, and Linux.


How do I start?


We are currently rolling out support of this feature across Chaturbate to age verified broadcasters. All age verified broadcasters in North America are now enabled. We will continue to roll out to Europe, and then globally. If your account has not been automatically enabled and you wish to use an external encoder please contact us to be added to the early access waitlist.
