Live Playback - Changes Are Live button
We've been using Wirecast Play for a little bit and now want to use Wirecast for expanding our streaming past youtube. However, we need a button to allow our audience to see the presenter pause, play, and scroll through a pre recorded video live, which unfortunately the current version of Wirecast does not have - but wirecast play does!
We either need wirecast play to allow us to stream to youtube or wirecast to add this feature!
This idea is important, but I want to go one step further. Imagine an integrated "VLC" player, that was a virtual input to Wirecast. That is the type of flexibility that we need in Wirecast. If that's what this is a vote for, I'm all for it.
I know there is a VLC NDI plugin for Windows, but nothing for Mac. We need something integrated directly in Wirecast.
I think this will be a good "interim" step. In fact, it was me that asked for NDI out of switch way back when.
But as time has passed, I believe that an integrated player with playlist and content management within wirecast would be the best way to go as a "virtual jukebox". Doing it this way takes the NDI layer out of the picture, and keeps it all internal to Wirecast... which in turn will mean lower load and better performance / encoding / compositing.
