I’ve previously shared tips on how to fix a few issues with OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) – How to Fix OBS Black Screen Display Capture Issue and in this post, I’m also going to share with you how I managed to interact with a web browser in OBS. I have used OBS with Zoom but you can use it with any video conference tool to display different types of content whilst you are on a video call.

I use the web browser at the end of the Zoom workout to display a spinning wheel that picks a random exercise. We use this exercise as a bonus at the end of the workout.
