Penguin Powered Production | LAS 417

We go behind the scenes & give you details on our new Linux rig builds, using OBS to stream to multiple services, the hard lessons we learned & our Linux powered production pipeline. After our year long skunkworks project this episode is living proof of how for media production under Linux has come.

Plus now we can all say ZFS is officially on Linux, Intel’s plans to make up for their Linux Skylake screw up, Ubuntu gets some snaps, Fedora “attempts” H.264 support, some games worth your time & more!
