NGINX RTMP Relay for Twitch - Create priority system?
I completed my task by using the OBS NDI Plugin RTMP - Can you setup a priority listener for incoming stream data, and output the more important data? I have two PCs, one is a Linux ubuntu server running OBS and is capturing through webcam my 3D Printer, this runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Meanwhile I also have my gaming PC that I frequently perform AutoCAD and Modeling work on, and occasionally play a video game or two.
I'd like to have the RTMP stream broadcast the Ubuntu server 24/7, except when my gaming PC starts to play, I'd like my PC to take priority and it would output what ever OBS is capturing on my Gaming PC.
I don't know if this is possible, but a point in the right direction would be great! Hopefully this makes sense.

Please pray for my church's streaming project.
Early in 2019, my church started a streaming project. They allocated a few thousand dollars, bought a camera, a capture card and a sofa for a regular Sunday sermon stream before the church service. They couldn't get any of it to work, it was awful, and they decided to stream on their phones.
I took over the project after a few of these and got them up and running. I got their camera to work, and then got funding to buy things they actually needed like sound baffling and lighting. I salvaged an old autocad computer to run the stream, lent them my audio equipment, gave them proper microphones, and hoped it would work.
Basically every week there has been a tech issue. It's a miracle when there isn't. Someone breaks a light, a computer monitor gets knocked over, and most pressingly the audio glitched out. It glitched a lot, forcing a complete computer shutdown and a complete redo of our streaming settings to get it to work again, losing all of our audience mid-stream.
I took the leap (out of frustration and no other routes to pursue in troubleshooting) and bought a new audio interface for the streaming project. I installed it this morning, and as we're getting the camera in focus to start the stream on-time, the camera input died. We were forced to stream on a cellphone as I tinkered with the equipment behind the shot. I've been left with 3 fixes, ranging from $10, $200 and $2000. I'm waiting on my $10 fix to arrive to see if it fixes the issue.
Can you please pray for this stream? I'm the only tech whose shown any interest in getting this running and the frequent equipment issues are beyond anything I've encountered in my years of broadcasting. I've never had a setup be this jank with no explainable reason as to why it randomly fails. Nothing makes sense and I otherwise have a pretty good idea of what I'm doing.
What hurts about this, aside from my pride, is that there actually is an audience for what we do. We get messages from shut-ins and those who can't make it to church who deeply appreciate what we're putting out online. I want to be able to serve them with an online church service to help them in their spiritual lives. I can't keep failing them.
Please pray for our success and for functioning equipment.
Edit: It was the $10 fix for a replacement cable to replace a seemingly undamaged one that fixed the issue.
