We recommend using a proper Windows PC to set up the BoostLink event:

1. Sound settings

  • Download a virtual audio device such as VB-Audio Virtual Cable or similar software in advance.
  • Set virtual audio device as the default Input (Playback) & Output (Recording).



2. Join meetings


  • Join your meeting from any third-party video conferencing platform such as your internal platform, MS Teams, Zoom, Webex, Google Meet, etc. As a technician, you should mute yourself and switch off your camera in the meeting.
  • Join the BoostLink event as a moderator from BoostEvents Portal.


3. Set up OBS

  • Download a screen capture software such as OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) in advance.
  • Open OBS--> Add Sources--> Select "Window Capture"--> "OK".




  • Choose to capture your meeting under "Window"--> deselect "Capture Cursor"--> "OK".



  • Resize the window capture under "Preview "--> Click "Transition" --> the window under "Program" will be shown on the BoostEvents interface.



  • Click "Start Virtual Camera" under "Controls"



  • If you want to reselect a window to capture, right-click the "Window Capture--> Properties" under the Sources



4. Stream your meeting to the BoostEvents platform

  • Click "Change camera" from Video/Audio settings on BoostEvents



  • Once done check that the video feed in the top-right corner shows your meeting (i.e. the window capture on OBS)



  • Start the BoostLink event on the BoostEvents platform
  • Go back to your original meeting tab and enter full-screen mode (such as your internal platform, MS Teams, Zoom, Webex, or Google Meet).
  • Test the OBS "Audio Mixer" bar by moving your volume slider.



  • Your BoostLink event is all set!
