VLC Player v3.0 has been released. One of the new features is that it supports native NewTek SpeedHQ media playback.

However, VLC v3 is currently not compatible with the NDI plug-in, so if you need that workflow do not update yet.

VLC 3.0 is pretty great so far!

Any ETA on a 3.0 plugin? Or a Mac version, for that matter?

I don't know when it will be released, but I am currently beta testing a VLC v3 NDI plug-in, so it being worked on. I'm not aware of an OSX version.

Any update on this for Windows? I'm trying to get VLC running an NDI feed. How far back in VLC do I need to go to find a working version (currently gone back to 2.2.6 but still not working)? I'm using the current release of NDI Tools.

The current NDI Tools will work with VLC 2.2.x (2.2.8 was the last release). The new NDI Tools (which should available soon) will add support for VLC 3.x versions.

Make sure you install NDI Tools (again) after installing VLC so it will install the plug-in.

When will NDI tools with the VLC Plugin for VLC 3.0 be released?

I don't have a date, but I think it should be out this month. (No guarantees) It will be included with the NDI Tools 3.5 release.

Hello,
I just installed VLC 3.0.6 , as well as NewTek Tools version 3.8. After some uninstall and reinstalls, I was able to get VLC to see the NewTek NDI video and Audio outputs. I chose a short video to loop, the Studio Monitor on the same system saw the VLC as an option for an NDI feed, and my other system saw it as well. The Studio Monitor on the local system with VLC broadcasted the video the first time, then went to a green screen. The audio continues to play through the looping of the media in VLC. The second system on my network played a black screen only, and did not receive an audio feed either.

I did a fresh install of VLC and NewTek on another laptop on the network, and I was successful at getting the video and the audio to work for a while, then the video froze, the audio kept working, and a green screen showed up.

Any suggestions here? I think this technology is going to change everything so I want to make sure that I can make all of the basics work to their fullest. I use VLC frequently, and the combination will be amazing when it works. All help is appreciated.

The green output issue is caused by the having 'Automatic' or 'Direct3D 11' hardware accelerated decoding selected. Change it to 'Disabled' or 'DXVA 2.0' and it will not turn green.

Kane,

We have had the 'green screen' show up with other NDI sources before. In particular when comparing a Spark HDMI to a Bird Dog Studio. They were using the same source, same network, but the Bird Dog gave us a green screen (with flickers of video on occasion), while the Spark was always solid. We just figured it was an issue with our network dealing with the 'full NDI' of the Bird Dog Studio.

Are you saying this could have been caused by the 'allow hardware acceleration' setting on the Studio Monitor application?

No, this is not what I'm speaking about. The green output issue I'm speaking of is specific to using the NDI plug-in and VLC Player when VLC Player has certain hardware decoding options enabled.

BirdDog has developed their own NDI chip, if you are seeing issues, you need to contact BirdDog. I'm not sure what the cause of that would be for green output.
