Tema: Broadcaster UI - 01
Discussion about Broadcaster UI - 01




To showcase the concept and for inspirations...
(beta version - updates to come)


Dual source video output videoskin :
- Two main "boxes" : Master Video + Camera
- Optional : Slideshow for dynamic backgrounds

Custom Parameters :

To set Social Media names, put each below in a custom button and trigger (one by one, of those you want to display)
Notes: If you add Twitch, it overrides and removes Youtube. And if you add AskTheDJ, it does same to Instagram



To learn about custom buttons, see here


set '@$facebook' `get_text "Your Facebook name here"`

set '@$twitter' `get_text "Your Twitter handle here"`

set '@$youtube' `get_text "Your Facebook channel here"`

set '@$instagram' `get_text "Your Instagram here"`

set '@$twitch' `get_text "Your Twitch channel here"`

set '@$askthedj' `get_text "Your AskTheDJ handle here"`


To display Messages, use the code below at custom buttons (each will remove and override any social media tags from above, when used)

set '@$messagebox1' `get_text "Text for message box 1 here"`

set '@$messagebox2' `get_text "Text for message box 2 here"`

set '@$messagebox3' `get_text "Text for message box 3 here"`

set '@$messagebox4' `get_text "Text for message box 4 here"`


To remove a message :

set '@$messagebox1' 0

To remove a social media name/handle:

set '@$twitch' 0


Color Variants (more will likely come)
Blue, Orange, Green & Red

I don't get it how to get twitch chat in.

Have done the custom buttons with both
set '@$twitch' `get_text "skyedotse"` and messagebox set '@$messagebox4' `get_text "Text for message box 4 here or should value be link to twitch chat"`

Set up the display extra box with 4 deck as Video FX showing.

Do I need dual screen setup to let screengrab show the chat? I'm only on one screen so perhaps it isn't possible. Need a way to find the source to twitch chat.
What info have I missed?

@$twitch have to be set as you do
but the name or messages will display in text_box3 so that it is @$messagebox3 to set to ''

Understand that those command is only for display on the Videoskin Screen.

How to get Twitch chat in?

Currently as far as i tested only messages from askthedj can "live" appear in VDJ
and only the "message boxes" can display small texts in BROADCASTER UI * video skins

so yes, there is no source for other chat but askthedj in VDJ
grab_screen is a possibility, as well as a virtual cam (that would display directly in the skin)

I thought about this a second, started looking at twitch API, webhooks etc, and then I realised twitch puts the chat on screen already, not sure what extension it is, likely stream labs.
