This plugin provides a dummy source to execute arbitrary commands when scene is switched.
Currently following 4 events will execute each command in background.
MacOS build is experimental.
  • Show - the scene becomes shown in at least one of preview or program.
  • Hide - the scene is no longer shown in any of preview or program.
  • Activate - the scene is going to the program.
  • Deactivate - the scene is retiring from the program.
  • Shown in preview - the scene is going to the preview.
  • Hide from preview - the scene is retiring from the preview.
For those who have python, a tool to send request to obs-websocket is provided here. (Save file from a link "Raw".)
For Windows users, I recommend to use OBSCommand to send requests (changing settings, etc.) to OBS Studio

The binaries are built with OBS Studio 26. For older version, you need build from source.
