Use OBS to Stream on Teams from another laptop

Photo by Vanilla Bear Films on Unsplash

On my work laptop i use Teams to communicate. But this laptop is lacking resources to demonstrate some stuff using kind for example.

I can use my other computer but i can't install Teams and complying with company restrictions.

So i stream using OBS from my computer to my laptop.

I followed Aaron Powell tutorial to use OBS NDI plugin.

And of course i used chocolatey to install OBS with plugin:

choco install obs-studio -y
choco install obs-ndi -y
choco install obs-virtualcam -y

Do not forget to configure Firewall to allow OBS. I was forced to set "Allow Edge Traversal" in Firewall rule > Properties > Advanced.

You can read this tutorial, too on how to use OBS, and what to produce for Teams.

Hope this help !
