   Hi Jonathan,
   The simplest solution I see is you have a 2core server(dedicated CPU if
   you are using one of those cloud providers) and install nginx +
   nginx-rtmp. Nginx RTMP lets you store recordings and play them back
   using videojs in a html5 page. This should solve your problem of
   streaming to a free software platform using OBS.
   This link is a decent getting started.
   For publishing your recording, a good way is to take your recording and
   upload to one of the peertube([2] or
   mediagolblin ([3] Both are amazing
   decentralized free software tools.
   Hope that helps.

   Hi everyone,
   I belong to science divulgation group and we've been testing platforms
   for online conferences. We prefer as much as possible free and privacy
   respecting platforms. We tested BigBlueButton and Jitsi Meet (in and choose Jitsi Meet as we think it's easier to use for
   people and we like its UI layout more. (We believe BBB is great too,
   use it for other kind of events where we use the board, for example).
   Up to now, we've run a couple of pilot conferences with few users
   (around 20). Now, we'll start to open the invitation for everyone. I
   know Jitsi Meet (and any platform) has a limit on number of people. I
   think we could perfectly invite around a hundred people, but that way
   we'll get to the limit of Jitsi Meet (at least in its free service). In
   some forums I've read they mention around 70 people, but not everyone
   with cams.
   I'm thinking on using some kind of registration form and send the
   meeting link to those users a couple of hours before the time of the
   event. Any recommendations for this?. I could as well just ask for a
   reply email to register.
   To make the event open for everyone, I'm planning on live streaming it
   with OBS. I don't want to use Youtube or Facebook live. Any
   recommendations to alternatives? or maybe a custom server for that.
   And the last alternative would be a platform to upload the
   recordings. Is there any usable alternative to Youtube?.
   I've researched in internet search engines, but I'd like to read more
   personal experiences and opinions.
   Thanks for any help.
