NDI version 3.5 had been available for download for a matter of seconds when tutorial and tryout videos began popping up all over. Here is one of the first, for folks who use a dedicated streaming system with Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) v21 to stream the output from their gaming system to a social video network.

Samantha Myers takes you through downloading and installing the new version of NDI Tools, which now installs the NDI driver, then shows you through setting up OBS to use NDI streams, and some of the possibilities of the setup for live streaming.

The tutorial should also apply for those using Streamlabs OBS for Gamers, XSplit Broadcaster, or Gamecaster in a similar arrangement.

The quality is much improved and the new NDI 3.5 backend uses far less network resources while improving resolution quality.
