Media Controls

Media Controls 0.4.0


Added this to my obs folder but somehow not seeing it in the docks. I'm able to see the media-controls folder in the data/obs-plugins folder and media-controls.dll and pdb in the obs-plugins/64-bit folder. Quite sure I downloaded the right version (64-bit) also. Any clue why this might be. I'm on 25.0.4

Hello, I've been waiting for something like this on OBS for years, could you explain how to use it? Would I have to have another plugin?
Exeldro submitted a new resource:

Media Controls - Add Media Controls Dock to OBS

Read more about this resource...

First of all, thanks a lot for this plugin. You are just a genius. Thanks again.

My OBS crashes if:

- SceneA has some media sources.
- Activate Studio Mode
- Adding a new multimedia source to SceneA (SceneA in preview and in program)
- Click transition button
- crash.txt

In other hand.

When changing to another scene collection, sometimes the plugin keeps showing the media sources of the last scene collection

Good evening,
excellent utility.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work for me either, after changing some scenes the program exits.
Best regards and good day.

I have installed version 2
It works perfectly, BRAVO.
I did many tests, no mistakes, no crashes.
I have a question for you if you can answer me.
I use the Source "VLC Video Source"
There is a command, to prevent the video used with "VLC Video Source" starting immediately when OBS STUDIO is launched
Thanks for the help, congratulations for the work you do

I followed the tutorial, I did it as explained.
My problem is:

I have inserted a "Media Source" (mp4 file)


"VLC Video Source" (DVD vob files),


I reopen OBS STUDIO and the two videos start automatically.

I'm suspecting you are dealing with the default OBS behavior, unrelated to the plug-in. If you have a scene, and media sources in the scene are enabled, when you switch to the scene, the sources will start. If you don't want the sources to auto start, don't enable them (little icon to left of padlock)
