Nowadays code streaming become more popular. There is even Twitch channel with software developing.
Usually for the streaming people use OBS software. Basically it allows you to combine several video/audio/etc sources into the one scene that is being streamed to the service.
Discord is another super popular app. The app let people be connected inside some community. For example the group of graphic illustrators can share their works and discuss in voice chats.
Discord live streaming is not very popular but sometimes can be increadibly useful. But Discord doesn't support custom streaming at the moment and the only choice you have is to stream window or entire screen.
First I move all controls into floating windows by using «windowed» button at the left of the control:
Now all your controls are separated and floating under the main window. You may want to adust its properties and size to fill the window with the scene:
That's all! The main OBS window can be a source for the discord live stream:
Using window source Discord takes sound from the window as well. By enabling sound monitoring we make the window emit sound that will be captured. The tricky part here is to avoid loops in the sound. But this part is hardly depends on your requirements and hardware.
As the simple solution to capture everything I can hardly recommend VB-Cable app that is basically a pipe source-sink. See https://vb-audio.com/Cable/ for details.

android vold for exfat
TL;DR: root is required, use exfat-fuse, patch vold, enjoy.
exFAT was developed by Microsoft in 2006 and most of the time it was proprietary. On the other hand, there were exFAT-fuse implementations for linux by samsung and others. Samsung driver was also closed, but due to conflict with the community about GPL licenses they were forced to publish (keep published) sources.
Despite the fact that the filesystem was developed mostly for flash-memory, there are no restrictions to use it on HDD.
For now exFAT is the best filesystem if you use your disk with different OS. Except Android.
Android devices can use USB devices by connecting them using the OTG-USB adapter. It looks like this:
Android until «Pie» doesn't have native support for the exFAT drives. Even if exFAT driver is included in the kernel. The only possible option is Vfat.
Vfat is «almost» perfect, but has its own limitations. The biggest one is the file size limit. You can't have files bigger than 4GB on vfat partition. That is pretty sad when you want to save 30GB mp4 video file to the portable HDD.
And there is another issue with exFAT: if you want to play this 30GB mp4 video file from the portable HDD using android tv stick! Android can't mount exFAT natively.
On your device you can use up to two methods to mount exFAT: - using fuse exFAT; - using linux kernel module (v5.7 and above).
I'll describe both, but the former is for manual process and the latter is as the vold patch.
mount it manually
For this method we assume we have exfat-fuse tools. Before you start, ensure your exFAT helpers exist by using the ADB shell:
android-device$ which mkfs.exfat fsck.exfat mount.exfat
Then you can mount them by using mount.exfat tool. This tool uses fuse driver and you don't need exFAT support in your kernel:
