    Hello

    So I purchased a pretty expensive course on how to make some extra cash by live streaming T.V shows on youtube for adsense revenue.

    Hell no sounds too risky. Instead I thought of a Genius idea to tweak what I've learned from the course and apply it to my channel in a much less risky way. (an admittedly much more safe).

    However the course says to get a VPS for streaming 24/7... Problem is I have no experience with VPS or even know how to configure one to work with YouTube.

    I'm pretty tech capable though and can learn super fast.

    Anyone can point the way to a resource on setting VPS up for live streaming 24/7.

    I'm already knee deep in reading whats available on the first couple pages of google :)

    Any help from my BH friends is greatly appreciated.

    Which VPS do you need for this? If its a windows VPS, then it would work pretty much like your PC/laptop.. However if its a linux VPS, then that might be hard if you know nothing about linux.

    I'm trying to do the same here, with a windows vps can I run like a remote desktop?

    I want to stream a single video in loop 24/7 but for what I'm reading apparently I can't run OBS Studio so I've no clue how to do it.

    @lilminymok Did you find a solution?

    You don't need a big pc for that.
    Buy this :
    https://www.epiphan.com/products/webcaster-x1-youtube/
    there are also more cheaper from intel mini pc's with i5 it's enough.
    and idk why that guy used game capture for vlc streaming when you can use this :
