Using Animated Lower Thirds in OBS Studio

Posted 14 November 2021

I've been playing around with OBS recently, and having fun pushing various tools to their limits.

One that I've found is great, but suffering a little from lack of documentation is Animated Lower Thirds with Dockable Control Panel , so I thought I'd post a few helpful notes.

Connecting Live.com Accounts to Outlook when they use a 3rd party email address

Posted 30 October 2021

I've just had to recreate a number of accounts on a windows PC, and came up against a fairly niche problem:

My family have Live "Personal" accounts that are tied to their primary email addresses, rather than to a hotmail.com or outlook.com account. My webhost provides a nice email service that supports secure IMAP connections for their accounts, so there was no need to set up full mail accounts, but we do use the calendar and contacts options, which are also managed on our phones, and shared between us. However, it's been getting slightly harder to add the live accounts to the desktop version of Outlook, hence this post.
