Webex is a great way to bring your speakers together in one place. However you can't brand your live stream experience with Webex.
Capturing your Webex meeting with OBS is a great way to enhance the visual appearance for your live stream, as you can add backgrounds, videos and musics.
Capture your Webex meeting with OBS
This tutorial will describe how to capture Webex with OBS:
Production configuration guide
Below are our recommendations and best practice when capturing Webex with OBS:
- Launch your Webex meeting:
- Only if you are hosting: Launch your Webex meeting host from a dedicated support laptop.
- Join your Webex meeting from the production laptop as a guest.
- Join your Webex meeting with your personal laptop as a guest.
- Configure your Webex:
- Rename your users to make sense (for example: SpotMe - Host, SpotMe - Production, SpotMe - YOURNAME).
- Configure your Windows:
- Share slides from your personal laptop.
- Set it as full screen on the laptop screen (shortcut: alt+Enter)
- Open the participants panel, move it to the monitor screen
- Open the chat panel, move it to the monitor screen
- If you want to separate the window (not working with Side-by-Side mode): move the speaker cameras window to the bottom right of monitor screen, below OBS.
- Configure your sound:
- On Webex, set your mic to “Cable Output (VB-Audio)”.
- On Webex, set your speakers to your main speakers (for example: “Speakers (Synaptics Audio)”).
- On OBS, go to Settings > Audio, and set “Desktop audio” to the same speaker as above (for example: “Speakers (Synaptics Audio)”).
- Turn off the volume on the computer.
- On OBS, re-crop your display/window captures accordingly (see the tutorial above).
