first of all I want to thank all developers for creating this fantastic software and making it open source. It enabled me to stay in touch with friends and family during these hard times.
I’m in Germany and we’re on our second lockdown now that will last at least another four weeks. During the first lockdown my wife and I performed a live quiz show from our living for a bunch of friends using OBS and Jitsi. Now we want to make something more sophisticated - an live online escape game.
We thought of something like this: We invite everyone to a special conference room to do another quiz. After everyone joined an actor (a.k.a. me) comes into the chat. I’m just arriving at home from shopping groceries and my wife has been kidnapped. The kidnapper left some clues and the participants have to help me finding her within one hour.
I’d have two cameras strapped to my body, one pointing at my face and one bodycam pointing forward. I’ll also wear a headset to talk to the participants. A producer (a.k.a. my wife) sits in the basement and controls the main video feed in the conference. She can switch between the live feed of my bodycam, some prerecorded videos (with audio), static images and maybe a map with my current position. These are the clues and riddles that have to be solved.
My video and audio feeds should be connected via an LTE link so I can freely move around the house, garden or maybe even drive two minutes by car to a small forrest nearby. It would be nice to use two smartphones but I could also put a battery powered computer with an LTE uplink into a backpack.
A nice bonus would an audio connection to the producer that only I can hear.
I made a little POC with compositing the video feeds in OBS and sending it to a Jitsi server but that adds some large latency to everything as the video feeds go to the OBS on my home computer and then upstream to the server. Also it doesn’t handle audio very well. Instead I would like to stream the ‘actor cams’ and the content from the producers computer directly to a Jitsi server (I can set up an own server for that) and having the producer remotely control the video and audio composition on the server.
This is how the interface should look like to the participants:
Has anyone done a setup like this or point me to some software or setup instructions for this use case?
