    Do not request or offer for sale or trade copies or files of copyrighted material - no matter how rare or unavailable to the public they might be. We do not condone the illegal sharing of music. There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort.

    Please try to avoid discussions that pit one format against another. Hint for new users: make liberal use of the search facilities here at QuadraphonicQuad.

Free software for streaming surround sound audio

There is a free program called Open Broadcaster that claims it can stream surround sound audio. It won't work on YouTube Live or regular Facebook Live, but it will on Twitch, Mixer and Facebook Live 360 with spacial audio. I not clever enough to figure out how to use this but maybe some of you out there might be interested.

The link with info about streaming surround sound audio is https://obsproject.com/wiki/Surround-Sound-Streaming-And-Recording.

The main page with links to download the software is https://obsproject.com/
