so i livestream sports stuff off an ipad from wirecast onto youtube. some kids have been asking me to get a scoreboard onto the stream and im like ok how and they said obs. i know how to use obs but we dont use it to livestream, but we could. how would we get the picture from the ipad (as in the game) onto the laptop? i have looked it up and found an answer but it didnt work. i want to hear it from someone who can specifically be talking to me, and thats why i came here.
thank you for your time

Question... why go from your Ipad to computer? Why not do what you need to from the computer?

because the camera we use to livestream is the ipad. it just is, and its not really my call to get another new camera that would solve the problem. i have to work with what i have now and its annoying but it is what it is
regarding that product, i do not want to purchase something that isnt really that important. i would like to be able to solve this problem without spending any money

Ok. What about storing the livestream on your iPad, Then downloading to YouTube?

iff i understand correctly, you are saying that we record the game and then upload it onto youtube. not trying to be mean but that defeats the whole purpose of us livestreaming in the first place. we livestream so people can watch the games live; not later
if i misinterpreted what you said, can you try explaining again? im not the brightest :(

You’re just fine!! This is a site for helping people.

It’s just me... I’m having difficulty understanding your situation. So please be patient with me.

So you’re recording a live video on your iPad. Correct?

If correct, are you saving that video to the IPad? Or, are you wanting to somehow stream real-time what is being viewed on the iPad camera straight to the computer?

Are you wanting this video to be displayed real time on the computer, or just stored there?

Just trying to understand. :)

ok so:
correct, we are recording a live video from the ipad onto youtube. we are not saving the video on the ipad, it is only saved on youtube. we want to somehow stream real-time what is being viewed on the ipad, which in this case is a sporting event, but i would like to somehow make it a 'scene' on either obs or wirecast, it does not matter which. the video is to be displayed real time on youtube

Maybe you will be needing a multiple HDMI connector into your main computer to connect you ipad or other devices into it.

The Mirroring360 app I mentioned in my previous post costs $12. Are you saying you'd rather spend your time scratching around and not getting anywhere, rather than spend $12? That doesn't make sense to me.

It's way past time for you to explain what's being attempted here. Who owns the rights to the sporting event? Do you have written permission from that owner to stream it live, or even later, to YouTube or anywhere else?

You have not yet responded to post #11. As long as those questions are unanswered almost no one is going to be reckless and continue with advice.

Sorry, I am even more confused now. I'll defer to Brad, who probably understands this better than I do.

In post #4 you included the phrase "its not really my call" but now you are "in charge" and "the owner." Sounds a bit contradictory to me.

What are these sporting events?
