    NDI to Skype

    Hi
    Set everything up. Made sure I DONT have the microsoft store version of Skype.

    Started up Skype on a networked other machine. In camera settings in skype the choice

    NewTek NDI VIdeo IS available as a choice BUT on selecting this I only see a black screen.

    I then opened up video Newtek video monitor from tools and I see the output perfectly.
    MMM
    so we know its getting across

    I then set up on a MAC and again opened up the NewTek monitor for MAC .. again OK I see the output from wirecast

    I then start Skype on the MAC and again Black screen.

    I DO have the correct version of Skype AND NewTek NDI Video DOES show up in skype as a CHOICE of camera.


    So Black screen in Skype?? What could it be.

    Thanks

    The NDI Video input is NDI Virtual Camera. You have to run this software and next to the clock on the PC is a icon to choose what NDI source you want it to work with. NDI Virtual Camera isn't available on OSX just on Windows.

    I am using tools version 3.7 and I'm having the same issue. Virtual camera is unstable. It will work for a few seconds and then stop. I have to quite the application via task manager and restart it.

    Hi
    I reported this to tech support who came back to me and said they had the same issue getting NDI into skype and all they had was the black screen. They said they were going to escalate it to someone higher. About a week later I got an email saying as I had not updated them they were closing the ticket.
    I tried to respond but every email was returned to me as undelivered. I then changed to a second email and that went through but now they would not respond as it was a different email.
    A week later the same message closing the ticket.

    Conclusion. I gave up. No big deal I moved on to another solution through Wirecast.
