Automate 24/7 Stream for a scheduled Playlist

OBS does make a good encoder,switcher and compositor. Using OBS standalone as a 24/7 + plugin would not work, because it's way too complicated for OBS to handle. But as an encoder engine controlled via the websocket by an outside app, 24/7 is very do-able

I personally think this will work great for Broadcasters with a very limited budget.
Can't wait for version 1.0 it looks very promising.
 
You should encourage people to use obs in new ways.
I'd rather not, and instead focus more at helping someone excel at using things even better for the purposes they are designed for, whether that be a software switcher like obs, or any of the many existing playout systems for 24/7 station management. It so happens these forums are for the former, not the latter.
A full blown 24/7 does take a lot of work to create.
I don't think anyone is disputing that? Another reason to use systems built for those tasks - more time executing instead of building.
I'm running beta testing on my app and it's pretty stable.
That's excellent, congrats!
It's been running and "COMPOSITING"
not sure why you threw compositing in caps and quotes here?
You may not be interested in 24/7 but there are people that are,
I at no point ever said I wasn't interested in 24/7 and that no one was...
especially if the app reduces station management to one man instead of a crew.
again, that's why I've said time and again 'right tool, right job' - there are existing playout / management systems who's focus is literally 24x7 station management to create a one-man band scenario. Their sole focus and development is on that goal, not being a software video switcher being retooled for a use case it wasn't initially designed around.
I suggest that since you have used some of these software products, that it would be of great value that you tell us your experiences and recommendations. That would add value to the obs community.
I've shared those recommendations many times before. The 'value' has been added. It's far more valuable to speak to / assist with / make recommendations on the product this forum is devoted to and the use cases it's primary usage and development focus is centered on.

As I said previously in the post you were quoting from, I was literally just surprised people are trying to square-peg-into-a-round-hole this solution still after 4 years of this thread (that started from people not knowing what playout systems and schedulers are or that they existed and looking for that solve), rather than use the many that have existed for years and kept everything from decent sized stations all the way down to no-budget free ones going for many years, and I wish those still trying to hammer away at this all the best.

this a forum for all people with diverse interests, a safe place. Constructive criticism is ok. I've looked at your other posts and have seen that you have helped many people. People do projects all the time that you may feel a waste of time. I also get the feeling you would like this thread to disappear. Do you really think ,I'd waste a lot of time duplicating some "free" commercial or amateur software. Obs is not just the property of youtubers. When I mentioned "compositor", I thought you might just be a little curious about what I meant. Most people think of 24/7 as playout software, not as a full IPTV. What I'm doing is 24/7 IPTV , Playout , prototyper , recorder and other purposes. It's getting late. Here is my current IPTV TEST channel on youtube.

I see that there were some people checking it out. Have to say sorry. I run this on my laptop and am doing stability checks. I had only programmed it until midnight last night and didn't notice. So I scheduled another 4 days (24x4 half hour programs) . Took my app 6 seconds to do that.

Incredibly weird assumptions after I've now wished you luck twice in addition to very clearly stating in my last post that the old one was purely stating surprise that people were still trying to reinvent the wheel, nothing more. Maybe third time is the charm, but I wish you luck on your project...
I've looked at your other posts
... as well as your other extracurricular activities.
