  • Shows up in the connection debug Stats window.

Multiple lines (on alpha)

Until I figure out a better way of doing this, I've enabled a way to have a display name be on multiple-lines in VDO.Ninja.
&label=DisplayNameHere\nSubtitleHere Note the use of as a line break ie:\n(he/him)\n
So it's not super obvious how to do this currently, so I think the next goal will be to add the option to let a guest enter their own sub-title, etc, when joining, using dedicated input fields. But until then, I hope this still helps. You can stylize the sub-label within OBS's CSS section, targeting the following CSS, but please note I'll probably be tweaking the CSS/HTML as well in the future:
.video-label>span:nth-child(2) {
font-size: 50%;
display: block;
text-align: center;
