[HOW TO] OF app streaming to Twitch, interaction via Twitter DMs

Hey wonderful community,

I built a visual installation called JuneBug that the audience interacts with through Twitter DMs. It’s built in Open Frameworks, runs on a local computer and communicates with Twitter via node.js, that hooks into the OF app via OSC.

I want it to live online 24/7 so I’m figuring out how to stream it to Twitch.

List of things to figure out:

  • Headless streaming (via gsStreamer I assume?)
  • Hooking into Twitch
  • Finding an online server capable of running it visually that won’t break the bank

I’ll be updating this post with my failures and successes for posterity, if anyone has suggestions or tips please pitch in!
