Although the RGBlink switchers can't stream directly, the USB output found on the switcher means it can be fed directly into a computer. From here, the output from your switcher can be streamed directly to Facebook or YouTube, or bought into a software encoder like Wirecast, vMix, OBS or more. Lastly, you can also bring your feed directly into your video conferencing application of choice as your webcam. This includes Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams, Google Meets, Etc.
