MPEG-TS Mac software encoder

I am interested in creating a mobile live stream from my Macbook, with a connected Thunderbolt SDI dashcam. Currently, it streams out using a TVU bonded cellular device, but this eats data like crazy, not practical to leave the feed "up" for any length of time. Looking for as close to a $0 solution as possible, and am already aware I can create an MPEG-TS stream for $2500 using a Teradek, not financially practical.

Anything out there? Quicktime Player can see the Blackmagic MiniRecorder input, and so can YouTube Live...but I need to hit my stations MPEG-TS receiver!

Thanks!

Paul

I think it may be possible to do this using OBS Studio, although I've never actually tried it myself. OBS Studio has an option to send custom encoding parameters to FFmpeg (which has support for MPEG-TS). This post describes the rough idea:

Re: MPEG-TS Mac software encoder

Working! OBS can indeed send a standard UDP MPEG-TS live stream to a server...the stream is identical to the type that comes out of Sony camcorders. Just have to go into the options screen select record FFMPEG and you get a menu for entering the IP/port...weirdly, on the main screen, you hit record to send the stream, not start streaming...go figure.
