Chat Overlay
Turns your social chat and comments section into selectable social overlays for OBS Studio or other studio production software
This Chrome browser extension turns your social chat and comments section into selectable social overlays for OBS Studio or other studio production software.
This chat overlay extension will forward the selected chat message over a web-socket connection to a secondary webpage, which can be used in OBS-Studio as a simple browser source. This makes capturing the chat messages from a live video stream very easy and fast -- no Chroma keying or window-capturing needed. It also makes customizing the style pretty easy, with no Chrome extension development needed.
