This plugin has solved such a major headache for me and allowed me to get my Twitch.TV stream back up and running. With NewTek NDI, and this plugin, now I can output my 15Mbps stream to restream.io while simultaneously sending my output stream at full quality (~200Mbps) to my other broadcasting OBS machine as an NDI Input, from there I send to Twitch at 6Mbps. Before my stream was being blocked as the bitrate was too high and I didn't want to pay for Transcode time on Restream,IO anymore; this enables me to perform my own "transcoding" with NO extra cost. Setup is super simple and I was ready and streaming on both boxes within minutes. The CPU overhead is minimal on my main box, like 4% extra, so it doesn't effect my gameplay or other material really much at all (i7 960 @ 4.2Ghz). Even with the much extra IP traffic, there's no encoding to network lag on either OBS session on either machine, so no dropped frames due to render lag or network lag! Simply amazing! I do wish that there was finer controls for the encoding in terms of bitrate, but at this point... I'll take it! Great job!
This is a life-saver! My computer is running out of USB bandwidth with all my capture cards, and with this I can hook everything up and have it working until I get more USB-controllers. I am a hardware-kind of guy to the core, but this works flawlessly and I'm actually second guessing some stuff...
I suppose with a deticated, closed-off Network switch and some extra ethernet cards you could do some truely amazing things with this, plus save a good couple of bucks on capture cards for each of your other PC's.
This is nothing short of amazing, I'm even using the official 20$ NDI app from AppleStore to connect my Iphone to this and I only see possibilities with this technology. To the best of my knowledge the limitations will be within your home network.
With every version update, this keeps getting better. 4.2.3 (current) is the most stable so far. This plugin expands the usability of OBS to a whole new level. We use this on a regular basis at the production company I work at. Thanks again, Palakis!
Love the plugin, but 4.6.2 still does not fix the issue in which it was patched for. I still cannot select a NDI as a source in OBS. I have to rollback to 4.6.0 which is now crashing from time to time.
