Comparison - OBS vs Yolobox, Yolobox Pro
Comparing Software based Video Mixing with
Why YoloBox is a Better Fit Than OBS
Video mixers are some sought-after software and
hardware tools that allow users to mix videos and add some effects to
them. While software tools like vMix,
Telestream Wirecast, and OBS (Open Broadcast Software), the hardware tools
are LivePro L1, YoloBox Pro, etc. But, YoloBox Pro are the perfect fit
compared to software tools like OBS.
YoloBox is a studio device used for HD live streaming.
Regarded as the most portable and convenient device to use, there are no
unique tactics required to use the touchscreen device. It has exciting
features such as encoding, recording, switching, and monitoring. And one
thing that makes it unique is that you can stream simultaneously to 3
different digital platforms. YoloBox & YoloBox Pro both
supports the feature of multi-cam live streaming through custom RTMP.
Essential Features That Make YoloBox Stand Out
* It enables you to create layers like
titles and overlays whereby you can run your video
mixing by tapping the touchscreen interface.
* YoloBox can encode an outbound system onboard, so,
you can stream with the internet, WiFi, or a 4G LTE Sim card.
* It enables you to record Output stream
into an SD card through the SDI slot
without any hiccup.
* YoloBox equally allows you to split the screen while
you record and then customize the size of your video record the way you want
* The device has dual audio inputs, which allow you to
add external Audio source via its 3.5mm input in additional to
audio sources embedded in the HDMI video
* You can add logos, watermarks, rolling captions
and etc, which is the
important to make presentation professional.
* And most significantly, it's portable to use and
affordable as well.
Similar to YoloBox, OBS Studio is
commonly used for video recording, live
streaming and visual mixing. But unlike YoloBox, OBS is an open-air tool for
live streaming. It enables you to stream videos via your computer device to
social media streaming platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Hitbox, and Twitch.
You can configure it on all Windows, Linux, and Mac OS devices.
Much has been emphasized between YoloBox and OBS
before, which is better for live streaming. But the fact remains that
YoloBox /Pro will stay the best and most affordable compared to OBS.
10 Reasons of choosing YoloBox over OBS
always makes it a little more complex for some users because you'll require
a computer and know how to tune-up, which can be pretty confusing. But
YoloBox is simple to use because all you need is the intelligent Touchscreen
control, and you're good to go.
2. If you're a new user, it'll be pretty tricky for
you to set up your OBS studio via the computer because the instructions are
complex and can't be easily understood.
3. It requires users to use third-party software for
their recordings, which you can't see in YoloBox.
4. If you still want to edit your record on OBS, you
still need to use other third-party software to do that, unlike YoloBox.
5. While using OBS, you can't be able to create a
playlist of your contents, thereby requiring you to select a preview before
switching to live.
6. It can be frustrating when you figure out that you
can't store your media files, meaning that if you move them to a different
folder on your PC, it might turn out to be an error prompting you to upload
the files again.
7. OBS does not have a default lower thirds plugin,
meaning that it only requires other third-party integration,
which can crash sometimes, or, better still, might not work.
8. It doesn't broadcast simultaneously with several
resources, and it's incompatible with Windows XP.
9. Given that it requires a PC before it can work, you
have to bear in mind that it chunks up a lot of memory space which might
cause the system to crash if it can't carry the load again.
10. It might get to a point where the software will
sometimes freeze over and crash, which will require you to start all over
again with the installation and settings.
works with Zoom and it is quite simple as well. For Yolobox pro
you need to connect directly to your computer USB input from
c USB output . While for yolobox You
will need to have HDMI /USB Capture
card . The USB input to the computer
will appear as the source of camera
( Just like a external web cam ) on Zoom. At the
screen of every attendee, YoloBox's output program will reflect in
the computer screen.
In additional, the greatest benefit
of using YOLO Box is their superb speed. The incredible fast speed can
easily process 45 frames every second. Yolobox recognizes the generalized representation of
object. It features HDMI out, allowing you to display the live stream
locally on the HDMI device. added to that, it has line-level audio input with headphone
audio out too. With this, you will also record the stream in mp4 format to the

Microphone does not work?
Audio-In port is intended for Mixers
and Lavalier Microphones (therefore it will not work with those which are
not battery-wired or self-powered)
4) 4G Sim-Card does not
work? Block the second HDMI-In?
In some regions, you can just
insert a 4G sim card to YoloBox then you will have 4G internet connection.
However, in the regions that we are not certain, we provide an external
dongle/modem in the package (some of our competitors charges $200 for this).
In this case, you will need to insert the Sim-Card into the dongle/modem
correctly first, then you will need to insert the dongle/modem into the USB
port. To prevent from blocking the HDMI, we provide an L shape adapter in

5) Can I adjust the
Yolobox currently use a VBR approach for bitrate which
will automatically adjust accordingly. Theoretically there is no limit.
However, its best to stream under 10,000 kbps. Yolobox is also adding an
option for the bitrate setting soon.

other could not do.
If you wish to understand better for this product
you may get it from this link below.
Over here I wish to highlight one of its Unique feature and special
application of this device
Extended Features and application
It is a Known fact that Wireless video transmission require line of Sight to
get the signal transmitted , regardless of the specified distance it can
The common transmission devices used are capable to
transmit a wireless distance in between 60-400m. While for Broadcast/
Professional application may require a longer wireless transmission system
for up to 1-2 km with or without repeater in between.
Needless to say
these equipment are costly with price range from USD 5k to 40k.
Whatever the wireless system may be employed, they system advocate and
support strictly with on line of sight between TX and RX.
you ever encountered the following situations, your wireless video system
1. Transmit the video signal beyond its specification
e.g. 20km or more distance away.
2. Transmit at great height e.g. studio
located at 40th floor while the scene is at the lower floor for e.g. ground
Even it can be cabled via SDI, it will be more than 100m which
stretches the limit of a SDI cable and it is unlikely you will lay a
temporary fibre cable from ground to 40th floor.
3. Or when the scene and
the control room are separated by several walls. Laying temporary cable is
out of your options. Wireless signal are blocked by the wall in between
All the above scenarios have one of the following specific requirement
1. Transmit at very long distance beyond the wireless transmission system's
capability or need expensive equipment to support
2. Completely with no
line of sight for wireless video system to operate.
If for some reasons
you are required to meet the above challenges and the imposed requirement
insist to view the Video remotely, what would you do??
When this is
case, just remember Yolobox may save you and it might be the only solution
This is definitely possible by exploring YOLO box Live
Stream function. Nonetheless, before moving forward, you have to accept the
following 3 conditions / constraint
1. Both the TX and RX location
must provide with internet Wi-Fi connection, either Via Cable, Hotspot or
direct SIM card (4G).
2. Video Latency at the receiving end is inherent,
between 2 -5 sec depending on the internet speed available to you.
Video image is of Streaming quality vs Compressed or uncompressed wireless
video quality by wireless Transmission system.
Let's move on if the
above constraint is acceptable.
How to Do it then
1. You will need 2 x Yolo boxes.
2. Get both devices connected to Wi-Fi
at its location
3. Log in all devices under the same account
the scene site - Connect the Cameras via HDMI /(USB with Capture card ) as
input source and press start button
5. Over the studio/receiving end -
Just go to Live stream page to select the source and view it on your screen
or you may output it to external larger screen Via HDMI out.
6. With the
above configuration you are now ready to view the remote video stream
comfortably at your studio.
Q and A - and Meet us in our
store for the live demo
Q: Isn't it a streaming? from
one to another?
A. Absolutely right, the key thing here is,
there is no need to use computer on both sides and no RTMP platform is
required (e.g. FB or U-tube & etc. ) to perform the task. It is streaming from
one Yolobox to another With Direct cable Wi-Fi connection the Latency is
Q: Is there any string attached to this solution?
What other devices are needed?
A: No, no computer is required,
No need paid-cloud to be involved, just 2 pcs of working Yoloboxes connected
to internet Wi-Fi.
Q: Can it be done when Internet Wi-Fi is
A : No, You need an internet Wi-Fi connection as
Q: Besides video, can I transmit my computer's
A: As long as your computer can be connected by HDMI to
the Yolobox , it can be done.
Q: How much is this solution as
compared to a Professional Wireless Video Transmission
A: If you
can afford to buy a wireless Video Transmission that is capable of
transmitting over a distance 600m, 2 x Yolobox are still cheaper. Remember
that Yolo box is a Monitor, Switcher and Streaming devices.
Q: Will your live stream carry audio also
A: Yes the audio is
embedded on HDMI together with video stream.
Q: What is the
Minimum Internet Speed to achieve Livestream and Streaming
Our recommendation is to have Min 5Mbps on upload speed and if you using SIM
card we strongly recommend to use 4G SIMS Card
Q: Can the
Latency be improved for less than 3 Sec
A: It can be achieved if
you have internet speed for more than 45Mbps on upload speed, and if
situation allows, please use Ethernet cable instead of Wireless Wi-Fi.
Q: How can I check my internet speed
A: You can do a
Google search with search key words of "internet speed" - there is a web
site to test or you may use a app named "Internet speed check", if you are
using your phone to provide Mobile Hotspot and Tethering to the Yolobox.
Q: Which option is the best for Wi-Fi connection, wired or
A: Most preferred - connect via Internet cable,
followed by 4G SIMS card, then Hotspot, as they are in order of faster

The Shortfall of Yolobox
1. It accepts Video input via
HDMI and USB3 only - It does not have SDI Connection
2. No Chroma keyer.
3. Require internet connection to operate
