To connect to an instance of OBS running on a different network, use a service like Ngrok.
- Sign up for Ngrok and follow the installation instructions.
- Follow the instructions for setting up closed captioning (option 1) between OBS and Web Captioner.
- Start Ngrok using the port number from OBS websocket settings with a command like
ngrok http 3333(if your OBS websocket port is 3333). You should now see ngrok running:
- In Web Captioner, go to the OBS channel settings and click Advanced Settings:
Save and enable the channel and start captioning. Your closed captions should be sent to OBS. You can verify by looking at the OBS websocket logs.
