Our CDN (DaCast) has started providing HLS streaming with low latency.
Right now the only encoder that allows HLS encoding is a free OBS Studio version specially provided by DaCast - however, this is nowhere near as functional as vMix to use as a mixer.
When will vMix be able to encode streams as HLS (if ever)?
This would be extremely useful.

For now, use that OBS for streaming your vMix output. Fast and simple solution at this time.

Sorry, did not see your post till now...
How would one stream from vMix to OBS - would that be using 2 computers (one for each software)?
What would the output from vMix be and what would be the input to OBS?
Thanks for any advice...

An unnecessary complication, right? using 2 computers to stream one event?
Sending a stream from one computer to another computer for re-encoding? More chances of something going wrong with hardware or software.
Aren't there any plans for vMix to incorporare an HLS encoder?

Late to the party, but if your VMix computer crashed or dies, what happens then? What’s more likely to crash, the VMix computer handling all the load from cutting a show, or the machine streaming from one input. We use a second computer to stream and a copy of the VMix project ready to fire up in case the primary crashes. It lessens the load on the primary and gives us something to go to like a “we’ll be right back” slide should anything happens to the primary.

We tried a CDN that did HLS streaming for a year and it was a nightmare and anything but low latency so not sure I see a need for it in vMix, make that a -1
