Show Source Tally
You can also show the tally status for individual sources. Every scene that contains that source will be handled like described in Show Scene Tally above. The page will update the scenes every 30 seconds in case you add the source to a new scenes after starting the tally. But i recommend to reload the page.

Latest reviews

Very handy and reliable. Would there be a way to automate the websocket connections so they will be set up same as last time when OBS launches? I would like to make this hands-off for volunteers. Thanks!
Very good Idea with much potential for the future. Keep developing it!
Thank you
i definitely will keep developing the tally light.
Nice work. I like it.
Tally have a litte bit of delay when the scene goes out
thank you for the review.
It can happen when a scene transition effect is set. The little webpage waits until the transition is finished. At the time 2 scenes are active.
