Those who use MB STUDIO + the video plugin usually have 2 or more monitors connected to the computer and will have noticed that in case an HDMI monitor loses the connection with the computer due to electrical shocks, energy saving, breakdowns, driver updates, Windows cancels or resets the screens and the MB STUDIO video window is moved or resized with negative consequences on capture by OBS or VMIX or NDI. Basically, the stability of the HDMI connection between the computer and the monitor influences the stability of the capture of the MB STUDIO video window.
Sometimes an accident or an intrusion on your computer results in the total or partial loss of the MBStudio folder. Since all the essential data of MB STUDIO are in that folder, the loss of data results in a very serious damage to your radio station. It is essential to organize a periodic copy of the MBStudio folder to another disk or another computer; at least once a month please copy the entire MBStudio folder elsewhere. You can do it manually (copy / paste) or use an automatic backup software. Another good idea is to copy the MBStudio folder into DropBox or Google Drive so it will also be available on the network and in other computers.
If you don't have a spare copy of MBStudio make a copy now!
All versions of MB STUDIO and MB RECASTER have an internal server that allows you to stream audio over the internet or local network without using an external server. Since external streaming servers are usually paid, this allows for economic savings, however, to ensure trouble-free listening there are minimum requirements and limitations to consider:
It is necessary to have an internet connection with STATIC IP. If you do not have a STATIC IP, you can also use a DYNAMIC IP as long as it is PUBLIC. In this case, a virtual domain must be used (for example no-ip.com).
It is necessary to have a lot of upload bandwidth
It is necessary to configure the router and open a TCP port on incoming connections
It is advisable to connect the PC to the router with a cable and not to use WIFI as it is very unstable and causes listeners to drop the stream.
