PTZ Controls

PTZ Controls v0.10.4

Supported Bit Versions
32-bit, 64-bit
Source Code URL
https://github.com/glikely/obs-ptz
Minimum OBS Studio Version
26.0.0
Supported Platforms
Windows, Mac OS X, Linux
This plugin adds a PTZ camera control panel to OBS that can control multiple cameras, and can automatically change selected camera based on the currently active preview or program scene.

The plugin supports the VISCA serial, VISCA-over-IP, and Pelco protocols, with plans to add support for other camera control protocols in the future. It has been tested on Windows and Linux. MacOS should also work but is untested.

This is early software that isn't fully functional. I'm only providing Windows binaries at this time. For other platforms you'll have to compile it yourself.

Thanks to forum user @jbcurler2010 for the plug-in icon

I'm sorry that you've had problems. Please remember that this plugin is still in development and not everything works yet. MacOS support was only just added in the last release and I didn't get the shared library configuration correct, which is why it would not load for you.

I've just released v0.10.2 which should fix the issue. Please give it a try and let me know how it works:

If you have any problems, please file an issue on GitHub so that I can address it properly and have a way for you to provide more details if needed. The issues link is here:

I am really thrilled and happy about this excellent plugin. I compiled it on Linux and it works like a charm. The only hurdle was to figure out the correct port to be used.
One big wish I have, please could you split the layout vertical instead of horizontal, so that the preset list fills two quarters from top to bottom and the camera list fills only one quarter bottom left?
I believe that most users won't need more than 8 cameras, but 16 presets are very much needed. If the presets fill two quarters on the right, they can be accessed much quicker because there's likely no need to scroll anymore.

Focus control has been added to v0.7.0-rc1. Please give it a try and let me know how it works for you.
You are a legend for creating this much needed tool. Working great with Visca over IP with Minrray and Jimcomm NDI PTZ Cameras. Really excited to see where this goes!
