obs-ndi - NewTek NDI™ integration into OBS Studio 4.10

Very functional and very easy to set up. The perfect way to send an OBS output or source between local network devices.
Sometimes crashes for no known reason, but aside from that, a valuable tool for Dual-Output streaming.
I was able to use this plugin to send live video from a program directly to OBS. It was a lot easier than trying to capture another window.
Works quite well on Windows, as far as the time is synchronous on all systems (difference <1 sec!).
With Linux, unfortunately, it does not work very well. Picture and sound freezes every 2 seconds.
A fixed LAN connection is required, WLAN should not be used.
This plug-in is super easy to setup and use and having NDI support in OBS to get around clunky capture card setups for two PC streaming is fantastic.

However, I've had major issues with being unable to hold consistent 60fps via NDI, even with machines well beyond what's required and a solid gigabit network. My main PC also has to be frequently restarted because after every stream, game audio goes out of sync when using the NDI plug-in. The only way to fix it is to restart.

While I do appreciate this is a free plug-in being made by a hobbyist, support for this is also virtually non-existent (though in keeping with the general OBS support experience.) The author only responds to a handful of support threads and if you have any problems with this at all, expect to be left to figure it out yourself.

I still use this plug-in (especially since the alternative is XSplit which just, no) but it still needs a lot of refinement.
This plugins works perfectly. Now I can use my iPhones as camera. Well done.
THX! good Work !
Absolutely awsome, easy and usefull !
Using it to livestream basketball meetings.
Indiscutivelmente incrível!
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!
Really wish it would let me set the setting per profile. I have a streaming profile and a youtube profile. I need it off for youtube and on for streaming.
I was streaming with same settings for a year, then my 2nd PC broke and yesterday i fixed it, when i launch NDI scan converter ping increase to 300, when i turn it off it go back to normal, anyone have same problem? I was contacting my internet provider and thinking its beucase of them but today i figured out its caused by NDI, video proof down there..

Absolutely brilliant. Between the windows 10 computers and up to date OBS studio versions. I ran the install (First time I look at this). Looked in tools to find the NDI settings.

Then went to my other computer and at this point only it started to dawn on me what this was for. Added a NDI video source and Boom! The NDI broadcast names were there and it all just works.

With this plugin the sky is the limit. Who needs a TV studio. We got OBS Studio. Can't believe this software is free.
i have tried for the past hour to make this work, but every time that i try the program does not show up in my obs
Does not work with Windows 11
this is unfortunate... I echo Habster81's thoughts, this is a huge minus for OBS Studio :-/
For those wonder on the state of NDI https://obsproject.com/kb/obs-studio-28-plugin-compatibility . It's currently listed as just a work in progress.
