Setup VoiceMeeter Banana
VoiceMeeter creates a virtual audio device so Windows will see the device. This way you can hear your mic and gameplay audio together in your headset, and send them to TotalVU separately. By sending both sound sources to VoiceMeeter, we create a mix for your headset. We also feed the gameplay audio to TotalVU.
First we need to adjust Windows Sound and App Volume settings. We are adjusting the Sound Settings so all audio from your PC will go to VoiceMeeter's input. We adjust the App Volume settings so we set VoiceMeeter Input to 100% as default output, and we also set your game audio to VoiceMeeter's Aux Input.
Run Voicemeeter. Load the TotalVU XML presets for VoiceMeeter if you haven't already (Menu button->Load Settings).
Click your Windows Sound icon to open the Windows Sound dialogue. Select VoiceMeeter Input (VAIO) and click Set Default. NOTE: select VoiceMeeter Input, not AUX Input.

IMPORTANT: Start the Virtual Camera by clicking on the Start Virtual Camera item in the Controls Menu. This step is not used when streaming to Twitch. But it is required for TotalVU. Notice the menu changes to Stop Virtual Camera, indicating the virtual camera is working.

In the future, you can open OBS, select the source you created, start the game client and click Start Virtual Camera. No need to configure the source again.

Set up OBS for Your Gameplay Video
OBS is used to send your gameplay video to TotalVU. OBS captures your gameplay window and outputs it through the OBS virtual camera. You will not be using OBS for “streaming” as you would to Twitch or YouTube. So the setup is slightly different. If you haven't installed OBS, download the OBS installer and run the installer.
Start your game client (in our example it is League of Legends) so it is running (on the preferred monitor if you have more than 1)
Run OBS, then follow the guide further.

Twitch and Youtube Users

TotalVU does not use the "streaming" part of OBS.
How TotalVU Works
TotalVU uses a feature of Chrome or FireFox browser to send video and audio from your machine into the TotalVU cloud. You send your webcam and headset mic feeds to TotalVU in one browser tab (just as you would for Google Meet.) Then with the help of OBS and Voicemeeter, you create a virtual camera and virtual audio device from your gameplay video and sound. You send the gameplay video and audio to TotalVU using a second browser tab.
