Hi all,

there is the interest of a medium-sized German city to stream its city council
meetings to the internet. They would like to use Free Software, are willing to
spend some money for it and are looking for help now.

Apparently there is OBS Studio in this area [1]. Theoretically, this could
also be possible via Big Blue Button [2]? Does anyone here have experience
with any of the mentioned software or in general with live streaming and Free
Software and can share recommendations / pitfalls?

Thank you and best regards,


No one shall ever be forced to use non-free software
