View Full Version : Connect and TransmitQuestion with VLC

01-24-2017, 07:24 AM
I got my Newtek Connect to see my webcam fine and into my Tricaster 460. My question is how to I get the actual window onto another monitor and why can't I make the screen smaller? It can be minimized but that's it.

With the Transmit I am able to see the Tricaster. What I want to do it use VLC to stream out that stream to Facebook Live or YouTube as a second stream. I can't seem to get it to work. I was able to get the Adobe's Flash Media Encoder to do it but VLC should be able to as well.

Thanks for sharing,

I just tried NDI Transmit and VLC Player and they worked with just a little configuration.

In VLC Player, choose the Open Capture Device from the Media menu,
Select DirectShow for the capture mode and the Video and Audio device name should be NewTek NDI Video.
One last settings is go to the Advanced Options and set the Picture aspect-ratio to 16:9
After that it would work.

Of course, make sure the NDI Transmit is set to the NDI source you want it to work with.
