Open Broadcaster Software – how to create a creeping line?

Hello to all!

Today we will consider the question that almost every streamer faces sooner or later: how to create a creeping line? As a working environment, we use the program Open Broadcaster Software, which you can download from the link . Despite more than wide functionality for the stream, the program is completely free, which cannot but rejoice:)

In fact, in the program Open Broadcaster Software all this is created for one-two-three. So, let’s begin!
Time. In the Sources window, add another source: text:

Two. We give any name that is convenient for you to this source. In my case, it will be just a TEXT 🙂

Three. We create the text of the creeping line, and specify its settings:

In fact, everything is very intuitive and simple. As a hint, I’ll only clarify that the “Scrolling speed” parameter is responsible for the speed of text passage in the creeping line. By the way, the ability to get text for a creeping line directly from a text file is very convenient. But it is imperative that it is encoded in UTF-8 or compatible. The functionality of Open Broadcaster Software allows you to make adjustments on the fly. Those. you add the text you need to the file, and it immediately begins to appear in the running line – without overloading the program and stopping the broadcast.

It is important to note that in Open Broadcaster Software Studio the mechanism for adding a creeping line will be somewhat different. We will talk about this a little later 🙂

UPD from 05/30/19:
I repeat – it is extremely important that your text file with text for the creeping line be encoded in UTF-8 🙂

The best way to do this is to use the Notepad ++ editor. Download, install, create a text file, check that the encoding is as in the screenshot above 🙂 We write this file in the settings of the creeping line and enjoy 🙂

ActiveX in Chrome

I recently set up an office video surveillance system based on IP cameras D-Link 910, which, although discontinued, continues to work for the benefit of the control of working personnel. Of course – laying a twisted pair cable (without this, in our age of wireless technologies!), And the fight against the Java security system, which in theory should have been responsible for outputting the video stream directly to the browser.

Smoking manuals to combat security restrictions, updating Java itself, lowering the security levels of the system itself and other dances with a tambourine did not lead to success, and I, admitting my defeat in this round, did not give up and turned to the ActiveX tab – which I could also take on taking care of the video processing on the client side. There was a problem – getting ActiveX to work in the Chrome browser. Of course, it was possible to configure everything to display in Explorer with the argument “Otherwise,” but … in fact, I’m sharing the good news – the possibility of ActiveX in Chrome exists!

Through the Google store, look for the IE-Tab extension (or just download it on link 😉 ), install it and rejoice – after clicking on the new icon in your browser, you will see an IE line, entering in which the address of the resource requiring ActiveX you get Explorer emulation in the Chrome browser.

By the way, this focus works not only for ActiveX – at least all passed link tests visited with this extension confidently identified my browser as Explorer.
By the way, in the settings of the IE Tab extension it is possible to add to your favorites the pages that need to be displayed using this module. Great!
