Streaming Setup

The goal of my streaming setup has always been simplicity.

I capture audio and video primarily through my workstation.

If I would like to move around, I typically use my iPhone 8 Plus. I previously had a Google Pixel 3 XL sending data to an RTMP server in the cloud, but it was stolen along with the rest of my mobile gear in San Diego, following TwitchCon 2019.

My gaming and fitness streams are captured through my workstation, which lives in my home gym.
