Skype NDI Source Automatically Changing Size- SOLVED

Hello,

 

I was reading this thread, and think I have a temporary solution.

https://telestreamforum.forumbee.com/t/18s799/skype-ndi-source-automatically-changing-size

 

I use a 2nd computer for my Skype guests and have this video scaling issue due to Skype auto-scaling video based on bandwidth.

So, what I did was Skype NDI out into OBS as a single, fullscreen source. Disable audio out of Skype by dragging output to zero in audio and video settings.

Then, output OBS NDI into Wirecast.

Bob, at that point should be your uncle.

Thoughts?

    It's not quite that simple. You need to ensure you use the built in transformation properties to scale the content to the bounding box. I recommend scale to inner bounds and center as the values. ;-D

    We're working on improving how Wirecast responds to shot resizing in Skype NDI. It's a high priority for us.

    So, Adam Blainey  How are getting audio into Wirecast. Also I have to tell you I’m temporarily using OBS until a fix is out for Wirecast. With your workflow you could be introducing a ton more of latency, or maybe you have the secret sauce.

  • Greg Kuhnert Skype NDI sends audio to OBS which sends audio to Wirecast via NDI.

    I actually take USB audio out and go into a mixer first for mix/minus

  • George E. Kennedy, Jr also this method only allows one Skype guest which hobbles the implementation, but temporarily working ok for me.

    You can run multiple instances of OBS on the same machine, so that should be possible. Probably not nice on resources, but it is possible.
