    I've gotten a few questions on why I am using Beam instead of Twitch and YT for my streaming of VR. I figured I would explain in a new thread.

    1. Microsoft bought Beam this year and is integrating it into the Creator's Update for Windows 10. Integration with the new AR headsets will be easier to use.
    2. Using Tachyon (a modded OBS) with FTL streaming, there is almost no lag.
    3. The community is so warm and inclusive. Raids (having a streamer send their followers to another stream when the original stream is done) are extremely common.
    4. The mobile app is amazing and looks cleaner than Twitch.

    I still will stream on Twitch, Beam, and YT, but I am going to have exclusives on Beam to try to draw more people.

    Have you tried Restream.io? You can set up to stream to multiple sources, and they even have an app that allows you to see chat from multiple sources.

    I use restream.io, but FTL has better latency for my VR streams than Twitch ingest points.
