The benefits of using RoboStreamer for this Steam Broadcast
GameDevMikey / Red Dragon Interactive chose to use RoboStreamer to host a Steam Broadcast for Little Islanders on their Steam Store Page. The broadcast was streamed from a pre-recorded video file that was uploaded to RoboStreamer and streamed in a loop. RoboStreamer allows for the easy upload of videos without any size limit and the ability to keep streaming them without any time limit. This eliminates the need for running OBS on your own machine, saving time and money, and reducing energy costs.
Hosting a Steam Broadcast with RoboStreamer
Creating a Steam Broadcast is straightforward with RoboStreamer. Sign up for a free account, upload your video file, and add your upload key. RoboStreamer is created to make the process of streaming your Steam Broadcast effortless. Publishers will find it especially useful as they can manage Steam Broadcasts for multiple Steam Games in one place.
How is RoboStreamer competitive to OBS Studio?
Overall, RoboStreamer is a great option for game developers and publishers who want to automate their Steam page broadcasts, stream to multiple pages and do not want to spend time on fiddling with OBS or other streaming tools. RoboStreamer is a paid service that aims to make streaming pre-recorded videos on Steam as simple and efficient as possible, while OBS Studio is a free and open-source software that can be used for various types of live-streaming. RoboStreamer is designed specifically for streaming pre-recorded videos to Steam, and it has a user-friendly interface that makes it easy to set up and stream. OBS Studio, on the other hand, is a more general-purpose streaming software that can be used for a variety of platforms and purposes, and it may require more technical knowledge to set up and use. Additionally, RoboStreamer streams the video "as is" and does not require any real-time modifications or re-encoding, which can use high amounts of CPU and memory resources. OBS Studio, on the other hand, does require re-encoding the video on the fly, which can consume more resources but can allows for real-time modifications such as overlays or chat messages. Another advantage of RoboStreamer is that it runs on cloud-based servers with fast and stable internet connections, which can be more reliable than streaming from a personal home or office network. Ultimately, the decision between using RoboStreamer or OBS Studio will depend on the specific needs and resources of the user.
