I was unsure where to post this, so please move if there is a better site for it

I am trying to design a cheap system that allows me to have 3 video inputs, allows me to mix them and stream it live to youtube.

Currently I am thinking that I can stream from basic amazon/android tablets to a central computer running OBS. I could mix and apply effects and then stream from OBS to youtube.

My main question is how would I import a stream into OBS and how to create the stream on the tablet.

Overall I would prefer a solution that already exists, but would be able to create an app to do some of the work.

    I don't quite understand the setup you want to use. so you want to stream 3 tablets (the cameras I assume?) to a computer... Are these three cameras supposed to be in frame accurate sync, because then I assume you can bury that idea quickly. If you don't care, what software are you planning to use to stream the tablets to the "main" computer? Commented Mar 28, 2016 at 4:54
  • I was able to resolve this by using usb Webcam instead of tablets. Commented Mar 28, 2016 at 9:11

So possibly OBS (i havnt checked) as CasparCG (im using) do not support stream producers (input), I was recently looking into this option, and one program i found (there may be others) that supports this is vmix http://www.vmix.com/software/features.aspx which has a free version.
