Question / Help Listen to video in OBS while streaming?

#1
How can I listen to the video in OBS to understand when it is about the end and to activate a new source?
Listening in Youtube is always long behind and not a good hint when to change things in OBS.
Thanks for the answer

Settings > Advanced > Audio Monitor

Edit > Advanced Audio Properties

Set the sources you want to hear to "Output and Monitor".

For this to work, you will need an audio device to send output to that is not the same as your default output if you are capturing that default output-- so either a separate hardware interface, or a separate virtual device created by SoundFlower, iShowU, LoopBack or similar.

Thanks for the answer. my interface in advanced settings doesn't give me the choices you talk about. I inserted Multioutputdevice instead of Default, but nothing happens, the video plays without me hearing it. I chose the MUltiautputdevice in Soundsource, hoped it would work, but didn't.

I am referring to two separate things that must be done.

The first is shown in your screen shot. Under "Audio Monitoring Device" you must select the output device you will use for listening. (This needs to be separate from your default output device if that is a device you are capturing from. If you don't have a separate device, you'll need third party software like Voicemeeter to provide a virtual one.)

The second is available in the Edit menu, in the Advanced Audio Properties submenu. You can also get to it by clicking the gear icon in the mixer pane. That pane shows you all audio sources in your scene, and has pulldown menus for each one, the options for each will be "monitor off", "monitor and output" or "monitor only".
