The ability for VDO.Ninja to Remotely Control OBS Studio while streaming/directing
The menu button to control OBS auto-shows in the director's view or push-mode, if OBS Studio is set to give VDO.Ninja "full" permissions.
The menu button can also be added manually, for even guests, using
&obsoffcan be used to set permissions to fully off (also disables tally light and scene optimizations tho) when added to the OBS browser source link.
The OBS instance still needs
&remote=optional-passcode-hereadded to the URL for remote commands to work. If
&remoteis left blank, it gives anyone permissions to control it. If a value is passed to
&remote, the sender needs to have a matching
&remotevalue or they need to manually enter the passcode in the pop up control menu.
If the OBS browser source has its permissions set to something other than full (lower than level 5), the control menu will still show what info it has -- current scene, recording/streaming state, etc; depending on level. The lower the level, the less info is available to show. It can't remotely change anything though.
1. Add a browser source to OBS Studio with this URL:
2. Give page permissions to the browser source (Full access to OBS) like on the image below
4. Click on this button
5. Control OBS Studio remotely via VDO.Ninja
off, will hide the control option on the sender side, regardless of the OBS browser source page permissions.
As well, setting the OBS browser source to low or no page permissions will also not show the controls, which is how it is by default. You can force show the controls of course, but they won't work if the browser source doesn't have the right permissions.
