Auto start Virtual Camera and Mic

I would like the Virtual Camera and Mic to have an option to start when the Wirecast program begins for I mainly use Wirecast for Zoom meetings.

  • Very good idea - I also use Wirecast every day with Zoom and sometimes for streaming.

  • But some people would not want Virtual Camera to auto start.
    How would this be set by the user to happen or not? A setting would have to be saved beforehand.

      CraigS It would be nice to have an option in the preferences: Autostart yes/no.

      Jean-Pierre Kousz That would be interesting. But Preferences are "universal" and you may not want it to be in that state for every session. You would then have to know in advance, to change the preferences settings before a session in a different state.

      If one did this at the document level instead it would mean creating and saving the document in advance

      CraigS Yes that's right, that shouldn't be a general setting. But why not save the last status in the document?

      CraigS It would also be very nice if it would get a button like "Stream on", "Record on" ....

    That would make sense since such document would already be set up vs having it auto start in a blank document in which sources and canvas size may not yet be set.

      James Redmond Since you may want it auto start in some documents and not in some others.
