so.. trying to understand your setup here...

 

- PC1 runs the game, is connected to WAN1 for the game's network access, and runs OBS

- PC1's OBS output gets pushed to PC2

- PC2 then does further processing to push that over WAN2 to the interwebz.

 

is that correct?

Alternative would be to install two network cards in your computer and if needed to use various tools to bind applications only to specific network cards.

@mariushm is correct on this. but its such a tedious task.

to use that to the fullest you will need to build yourself a router for in between both connections and your machine.

 

on that router you have to configure static routes for your games and everything else... so that games go one connection, everything else the other.

 

 


2 Main Systems (mine and my late wifes): AsRock Fatal1ty Z77 Pro, Core I5 3570k @4300, 16 GB Ram DDR3 2133, some SSD, and a 2 TB HDD each, Gainward Phantom 760GTX. (one of those got a Gainward Phoenix GS 1060 if I had waited only a month longer ^^) 

 

On the Road: Acer Aspire 5 Model A515-51G-54FD, Intel Core i5 7200U, 8 GB DDR4 Ram, 120 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD, Intel CPU GFX and Nvidia MX 150, Full HD IPS display

 

Media System: Asrock ASRock Z87 Extreme4/TB4, Intel Core i5 4460, 16 GB Ram DDR3 1600 ADATA XPG, 1 275 GB SSD, 4 Seagate Ironwolf 4TB HDD in raid 5, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX (the 560 will be replaced with one of the 760 due to better effeciency)

 

(Abit Fatal1ty FP9 IN SLI, C2Duo E8400, 6 GB Ram DDR2 800, far too less diskspace, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX broken need fixing)

 

Nostalgia: Amiga 1200, Tower Build, CPU/FPU/MMU 68EC020, 68030, 68882 @50 Mhz, 10 MByte ram (2 MB Chip, 8 MB Fast), Fast SCSI II, 2 CDRoms, 2 1 GB SCSI II IBM Harddrives, 512 MB Quantum Lightning HDD, self soldered Sync changer to attach VGA displays, WLAN

oh and i didn't notice in your original message ... you don't want to mess with usb network cards, the performance isn't that great. usb uses more cpu power to transmit data, and there can be higher latency compared to regular ethernet.

 

also ,there are plugins for obs which can transfer the raw captured data to a second pc .. check https://github.com/Palakis/obs-ndi/releases/tag/4.1.3

 and  https://www.newtek.com/blog/tips/using-obs-ndi-plugin/

Like someone said above, this would be far easier with a router dedicated to doing it as you could permanently configure the routing table, but should still be doable otherwise but is going to be complicated to setup, at least on single PC.

 

How are you currently receiving each Internet connection?

There are definitely ways this can be done with a dedicated streaming PC, by ensuring that PC doesn't have the main gateway set (or change its priority in the routing table) so that it chooses to use the alternative connection over the main one.

As above you can do this with policy based routing on a router that supports that feature if you know the ports/protocols for each type of traffic which you can set to use a different gateway/connection.

 

On a single host it's really a PITA.

Well it wouldn't need to be policy, as long as you know the IP range you want to route out of the other connection.  But its still a PITA, especially as those IP ranges could change at any time.

Yeah that's pretty much my angle for doing PBR, if you have a consistent destination port/proto to dump into you can just match against that piece instead without keeping track of destinations :P

why you wanna do it?

Because you have 1 output in your home and it don't go faster with 2 cabels to 1 output cable to your provider

They clearly have two.

Use something like pfSense or any load balancing router and route packets from the stream via the alternate connection.

 

I do something similar but more for having a dedicated gaming connection and a 'download all the things' connection.
