Defines the link to be treated like a scene

Viewer-Side Option! (&room)


  • &scn


Example: &scene=2 or &scene=choosethename


0 | (no value given)

auto-add all videos to the scene; they can't be removed


empty by default; manually add videos in


like &scene=1, but videos are not preloaded


Must be used in conjunction with the &room parameter.

By adding &scene to a room URL, it tells VDO.Ninja that this is no &push connection.

&scene=0 by default has all videos in the room automatically added to the scene. They cannot be removed.

  • &scene=2 is like &scene=1, except the video streams that are not yet added to the scene are disabled with 0-bitrate used. They are connected, but not actively streaming any video data, so it takes a moment longer for videos to appear once added.

  • &scene=N, where N is a string or integer - it's just like &scene=2. There are buttons marked S3, S4, .. S8 in the director's room to control these scene types. If they are not already there, new buttons for them will be created automatically when used. See the video below.

  • When using a scene, if you manually specify a video via the &view parameter, it automatically is added to the scene.

  • Audio of videos in scenes can be controlled by the director: volume and mute are options.

  • In v17.2 of VDO.Ninja, if using &view in a scene link, the director won't be able to remotely control the scene. This applies to solo links.

  • In v18, you can create custom scenes, as per the video below.
