OSC - TCP/IP remote control feature

It would be great to have OSC control feature for wirecast.



Important things to controls would be:

- Select shot / shots

- Start stream output

- Start disk rec 

- Go live / transition x

- Audio level 


Today there is no really working way to controll wirecast from any modern show control software and it would be so great to have this ability!

This would mean for us that you could run more complex live shows smoothly.

  • Forgot to mention that feedback on OSC would be great also so controlling system could know the state of controlled item is.

  • I voted for this, but so that you know, all (except audio Level), can be achieved with the stream deck plugin.

  • Roope Berg  also fill out a Wirecast Feature Request form so we can send you a case number so I can track potential development. 

    The developers like specific use cases so you may want to explain how you personally want to use this. For example, do you have specific control software in mind or do you plan on developing such software?

  • This would be great!

  • Jon Akbar If you truly believe that then please vote for it. Posts aren't counted, only votes.

  • Hi Craig, where do I go to vote?

  • Jon Akbar Where it says Vote at the top next to the subject.

  • Done, thank you.

  • Jon Akbar You're welcome of course.

  • I previously requested something similar here

    I agreed this would be extraordinarily useful.

    The main use case is for when you need to control Wirecast from another computer. The Streamdeck plugin is fine, but isn’t helpful unless you’re at the machine. If you’re trying to automate actions from a remote machine, or get feedback on a large number of Wirecast instances remotely to monitor status you need some kind of control protocol.

  • I think controlling Wirecast with OSC is still a topic for us. We would really like to shoot the Scenes/Layers by OSC. "Push"😉

  • Has anyone else used OpenStageControl - it's an easy to use webpage builder/server to create your own web-hosted OSC control panels? I've used it for conference room automation, full DMX lighting control - all from an iPad. Would love to have OSC integration in Wirecast so I could have iPad control from anywhere in the room to switch shots. Currently, I can do this using a self-built OSC to MIDI bridge, but it's yet another program running in the background...

      Nate Proulx we are using AV Companion and with it Elgato Streamdeck as it has native support for it


      Then for timing we are using clock 8001

      it runs on Raspberry pi 3b+ and is controlled over OSC by AV Companion.


      There is a great FaceBook Group where you can get help from other 8001 users and see their setups.

      Roope Berg Thanks for that workflow tip.

  • Now that we have great 2:nd display output with audio mapping. Thanks for that. :) It would be great to add to this OSC Request to have possibility to read remainingn time on media files.

    That way you could have external timing sutch as Clock 8001 to display accurate timing on running media files.

     It certainly would. Some would like this on our own Multi-Viewer as well.

  • I support. I covered a similar topic with the development of similar functions and OSC for external SDI OUT-s cards and outputs. Case WIRE-18571 :-)
