Topic: Video Skin ideas for broadcasting on Twitch
I would love it if Virtual DJ allowed web browser source option in their video skins so i can show followers/subs/donations from Streamlabs on my Twitch stream. It would also be great to use that to incorporate chat right into my stream. Allowing this creates more of an interaction between broadcaster and streamer and it keeps viewers engaged. I like the default "for Live" Video Skin but it's not dynamic enough for what makes a broadcaster on Twitch successful.

Alternatively, having another way to display recent followers, subscribers, donators, and chatters within my Twitch broadcast while still having the Shader and a web cam source would be ace.

just use streamlabs software to broadcast .... that will fix the issue :-)

you can capture and broadcast the VDJ video window and place the widgets on top of it inside their software.

Maybe the "adds" page (which is browser part already) may be exposed as other browser parts for use stand alone with custom url/html
this way it could be used in any skin <netbrowser .../>

@wickedmix clearly, my brain was super fried when i made this request but yes lol good thinking! ofc i can just use the VDJ video window in my (sl)obs layout. thanks for the response!

@Nicotux yeah, may require some finagling to get a custom skin to work -- what would be cool with this native approach is that the community could then share it within VDJ as an out-of-box solution (as opposed to using a third-party to stream).

I have just used VDJ for the first time to directly broadcast on Twitch. Previously I've used various software options, and my Prime 4 standalone.

It worked well, and feedback was positive (good sound and graphics) but.....

Please Atomix can we have an option for the clock to show how long a broadcast has been running?

@ groovin use stopwatch

custom button action

custom button name

side point, [because I can't test] I think

also gives broadcast time

Thanks loco. I did look through the verb list for something suitable but couldn't see anything.

ah merde, that's my bad, I've been the one updating the english verb list since it exceeded 60k chars [1 page limit] [not entirely true, a couple of copy pastes out of the in app script definitions bigger than 60k were posted but got truncated, so I fixed that, and expanded a few little bits, beyond in app definition, only custom_button variations, get_time & _cast relative/absolute; iirc ]
poor form on my part as I remember it going public [I think I even mentioned the release in script school]

Added now [catalogued under "text" p2]

I was looking in the software, not here (easier to type and see results).

No, unfortunately not. I just tried here by adding it to the clock instead of the timer.

It shows (literally) record time but not broadcast time.

It's annoying as action="broadcast_message 'full'" shows a time display when recording, but for broadcasting it doesn't.

Atomix, please.
