Hi, I would like to know if there is a way to input live Facebook feed into Tricaster XD40.

I have installed NDI tools 3.8 and VLC 3.0.6 on another computer on the network. Am able to get the live Facebook feed into VLC and select output as NDI (once running NDI Scan converter). I can see the feed in NDI Studio monitor on that same computer. Now, I am stuck trying to get the feed onto the Tricaster. Does anyone know if Tricaster XD40 support NDI input, if yes how do I set it up please?

Alternatively if anyone knows how I can do this using other tools, that would help too.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

The TriCaster XD40 does not support NDI. It does support iVGA Pro, which offers pretty good capture of a computer desktop into an XD40. To get the audio, you will probably need to use a audio loopback driver. I've written a instructions on that here.
