The main reason to use OBS is a familiar interface (partially for myself developing but primarily the non-technical person who will be broadcasting).  For testing, I will work on creating the original stream with ffmpeg to see if that effects my final results. If that works I'll see about searching for a different UI.  Thanks for the tip.
