Any tool to read comments on youtube etc and allow moderator to choose a comment to highlight as text overlay on live video?

Needed a tool that brings up all comments from facebook post, youtube live video, etc and a moderator can pick any comment to highlight that comment as an overlay on live video... We should be able to customize the look and feel of the selected comment that is highlighted and overlaid. Any workaround/tool for this?

Hello,

OBS does not have this unless you use a specially built (not available from what i can locate) plugin.

If you must use a feature of this nature there is only one program that has it. vMix. and vMix social. you can read the comments and they provide a control panel for you top pick and choose what comment to see on stream.

I have been searching for this tool like crazy hoping to find a plugin - at least now I know I can stop looking for it.

However, I found a solution that works for me with Youtube (i will also try it with Facebook).........
It's not amazing but it works for me. FYI - I am using a MAC and I use Streamlabs OBS.

In Youtube you can pop out the Chatbox - Once I pop it out I can adjust its size.
I then make a selected screenshot in (SHIFT+COMMAND+4 ) select the comment I want to display
then drag the screenshot into the SCENE of OBS and it immediately appears.

It looks nice and sharp - but only appears in the left corner...
This way I can show the comment in a white block with the avatar. u can enlarge it
