Flex meter is great for youtube

I stream my radio on youtube sometimes, for special events and such. Often I don't want to show the entire radio interface but I want to show something moving, so what better than a bouncing S-meter and graph...

Something like this when I was listening to JE1LET this morning:

(He works WO2X at 15:30 or so)

Pretty slick. This is Flex Meter.

    BTW I use OBS and send DAX directly to it. It's pretty amazing that digital audio straight from the radio's FPGA is being sent over the Internet to YouTube!

    Next up I want to put more data on screen without using SmartSDR, but I might have to build something for this. If I do, I'll share.

    The denzone.com web page where the latest version of Flex Meter (v1.2)  is posted was down for a couple of days this week.  The web hosting company fixed the problem and as of this morning the web page is available.

    I have used OBS thru YouTube during a small local net so that others could see their output waveform on SSB as a means for tweaking their audio equalization. One issue tends to be the internet upload speed. With not great upload speed there is a lot of buffering and delay such that the viewing parties do not necessarily see a real time view but they sure get to see some great video.

    Thanks for sharing. I read up on FlexMeter. How do you go about sharing this on Youtube? Maybe a small HowTo document would be nice? Looking for information how to share FlexMeter, audio, maybe also pandadapter on a link as a live stream....
