    Something with enough CPU power to handle encoding in OBS at 720p minimum. I was thinking about something similar in the past, but getting a channel off the ground with a real audience is kinda hard. Just make sure the stuff you stream isn't infringing any copyrights.

    1. Rent a cheap VPS able to run Windows flavours (start from 5!!!);
    2. Download and install OBS Studio;
    3. Upload your own music on the VPS;
    4. Upload your own images and/or videos on the VPS;
    5. Configure a default scene on OBS (still image + media source->audio files)
    6. Optional: configure multiple scenes, multiple videos, multiple combos;
    7. Go to YouTube dashboard, schedule your livestream show
    8. Preview the livestream
    9. Start the livestream
    10. Manage the livestream (nightbot for chat management/filtering is free, try it)

    He means you can get a cheap VPS from 5 dollars/month.

    Or you could just sign up for the Google Cloud Platform trial and run a test on their service. Setting up Windows VPS is easy and Youtube is full of OBS setup tutorials. You should be able to figure it out.

    Thanks, I'm good with OBS and all of that, I've streamed on Twitch before. The only part I'm having to figure out is the VPS. I'll look into Google Cloud Platform :D

    Well of course you kinda have to be minimalistic with your stream. Not sure what kind of stream you want to launch so I just say try to be creative with the resources.

    A 24/7 music stream. What do you mean minimalistic with the stream?

    Well then I guess you will loop a GIF, encode audio at 128kbps and maybe add a track info bar. Aim for 720p and you should be ok. Report on your success please, as I might revive my stream project also.

    I was thinking of sometimes having a gif and sometimes videos as well. I'm guessing the videos might be too demanding?

    Yeah it could be. Try to set up several scenes with different GIFs but otherwise the same setup and find a way to automatically switch between them with some automation tool. Make sure the GIF doesn't violate any copyrights.
