    So this isn't for money, but I've grown a base a subs on YouTube (1.2k) around the Trance genre. I make no money as LOTS of trance music is in youtube's database, but I still really enjoy it.

    I want to start up a 24/7 stream, but don't know how. I obviously don't want to use my home computer, so how would I set it up? Do I use a VPS and set up OBS? I'm not too sure.

    if you want.... you can use cheap VPS for $10-12 a months and hosting...

    you need softwares to livestreaming in youtubes...

    here full guide: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2907883?hl=en

    i recommending you hosting on VPS.... cos if you hosting at home PC you cannot turn PC off... waste electricities and bills expensive....

    and VPS can be on 24/7 (assuming it no downtime) and its internet speed fast too.... so it cna provide better smooth streamings.

    good lucks

    It'll take up my internet (I have a data cap) and also I'll have to be constantly streaming which will slow my computer down.

    I am familiar with OBS and I've used it for years. The VPS is what I want to figure out. Why would I need hosting..? Can I not just get a VPS, connect, add the files, and stream?

    Yes you can use a VPS. Depends on your budget though I guess @HostStage has some good offers if you are looking for a decent VPS provider.

    To stream using OBS you need a machine with dedicated video card.There are no VPS with video cards.
    You will need a dedicated server wich are expensive.

    I recommend to use XSPLIT for broadcasting. Oh and you have to use Restream.io
    This is a free service, where you can stream to many sites like YouTube , Twitch etc. at the same time :)

    what is the requirement you need to stream 24/7?
    i would suggest to use reliable VPS like vultr, digitalocean or linode.
    quite cheap and good spec.
