Video: How To Livestream Your Indoor Ride – Online Streaming Basics

Livestreaming appeals to many Zwifters, from top racers wanting to share their passion with the world, to newer cyclists who simply want to show their friends how much fun indoor cycling can be. And while livestreaming is taking the gaming world by storm, it can be a bit daunting to get set up if you’ve never done it before!

Never fear: our favorite Aussie is here! Livestreamer and video tutorial guru extraordinaire Shane Miller has put together a cracking tutorial covering the basics of livestreaming your Zwift ride.

Shane covers the basics of his livestream setup that uses OBS Studio on Windows 10. He includes all the hardware, software, and configuration details for a high-quality single scene stream before going live on Twitch to show it all working in real-time. (Once you have OBS Studio configured you can stream to almost any platform – YouTube, Twitch, Mixer, and Facebook.)

Here are links to most of the hardware used in Shane’s own livestreaming setup:

Question! How do they setup the iPhone minimap overlay + the Latest Ride On overlay? Can someone point me in the right direction thanks:)

The latest Ride On is a PowerShell cmd to search for HUD_Notify events in the Log.txt file and write/display each entry as they occur, to a separate file that is configured as a source. The iPhone minimap is configured as a source, which might be the phone attached to the PC/Mac with a USB.

I’m using OBS with YouTube. It almost works. Check video appears in the YouTube Studio preview box, uplink quality is excellent, but I get a message saying YouTube isn’t receiving the stream. Must be finger trouble, any ideas please?

Any idea how well the Blue Yeti handles the noise from a blower style fan?

Hey Eric, is there a way to just record to a video file instead of livestreaming? Livestreaming is choppy and it would be nice to edit.
