Thread: Skype Beta Now Features NDI

    Skype Beta Now Features NDI

    If you download the Skype Insider preview (I had to use Firefox), there is an advanced setting to activate NDI. I haven't used it much, but I did test it using the OBS-NDI plugin. I have only tested Skype for iPhone to calling the Insider Preview (functional) and Skype Classic to the Insider Preview (not functional). I didn't have an idea testing environment, but I can confirm that Skype does set up a NDI output which it names as "Skype - Username" where username is the username of the caller. It also appears that the only output is the video of the caller (full screen) and the audio of the caller. It seems that you would need a full broadcast setup if you want to record a conversation. As stated, I was limited in both resources and time so I couldn't complete a full test.

    THANK YOU! This is something I've been looking forward to since it was announced at NAB!

    However, with further investigation, it's not really ready for Windows 10 yet. You have to install it as compatible with Windows 8. I'd suggest that waiting a little while more may be the thing. Scan Convertor is working fine for now.
