Sets a display name label

General Option! (&push, &room, &view, &scene)


  • &l


Example: &label=Steve


(no value given)

It will prompt the user for a Display Name on load


Sets the label for the guest/browser tab



&label sets a display name label to the stream ID.

  • Uses the label in OBS Studio if dragging the link into OBS Studio.

  • You can use &showlabels to show the labels in the video sources.

Multiple lines

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:


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;
