When you’re searching for ways to live-stream / broadcast something to the world, you’ll most likely land at the usual suspects - services like YouTube and Twitch. Well, those might be great, but you know what’s even greater? Right, self-hosting your own broadcasting platform. Luckily there is an awesome F(L)OSS project called Owncast that does the heavy lifting for you. Owncast is a privacy-friendly drop-in replacement for services such as Twitch. Owncast finds a wide adoption throughout streamers already, because only YOU own and control the content. In this article I’ll show you how you can host your own Owncast-instance in just a few simple steps, containerized on any operating system that supports either podman or docker.
