OBS-OpenLP Lyrics Interface - Allows you display lyrics text from OpenLP into your OBS scene as a Browser source.

This is a custom stage for OpenLP. It can be connected to OBS as a custom browser dock and browser source, allowing you to display lyrics that appear on your slides in OBS.

Setup

Hello! Thanks for this amazing feature! In my church, we use two different computers to manage OBS and OpenLP. So one person handles the cameras and OBS and another handles the lyrics in OpenLP. Is it possible to manage the whole process on a computer running OpenLP?

Hello,

Technically you can, but it would not be ideal as both jobs require a lot of attention. Also, consider what would happen if say the livestream sound went bad. Would your operator be skilled enough to troubleshoot the livestream while still operating the projector? But there would be no difference in how you run either OBS or OpenLP, just make sure you change the IP address in OBS after you switch computers.

amirchev updated OBS-OpenLP Lyrics Interface with a new update entry:

Version 1.1.0 - Many new features

We've finally transitioned to using this interface for subtitles at our church, so I had some time to work some much needed features into this next release.

Newest features include a new hide lyrics button, option to auto-hide lyrics when live view goes blank, and other customizations.

Please let me know if you have any bugs or new feature requests.

I don't know English so well, so I may not have spelled it out exactly.
I agree that both programs require a lot of attention. The person running OpenLP doesn't have much to do, so he or she could pay more attention to steps through the text that goes into the stream. Do I see well that the control only works on the machine running OBS?
Is it possible to step in OpenLP and display the appropriate text in OBS?

Thanks for the new version! I really missed the automatic text hide.
But there is a bug in the new version. The undo and redo buttons don't work properly. The change (bold text) is visible in control.html, but it does not go back in OBS.

Oh I see. Unfortunately, at this point I don't think there is a way to have the steps controlled by OpenLP. What we are doing is just having OpenLP display only 4 lines onto the projector, that way we only display 4 lines onto the stream as well. So the OBS operator doesn't have to do anything at all regarding the lyrics

I would like to be able to position the display box in different places on the screen. For our virtual streaming service I have scripture displayed to the left while pastor is on the right. In-person service I push the display to the top of the screen so people in the back can see. I also use the OpenLP formatting for red letter text, but it didn't come through with this plugin. I couldn't get it to advance to the next verse from OBS, I might have missed something in the operations of the plugin.

Display Scripture on Left: this is down to your setting in OBS, if you followed the guide here, it is used as a lower-third, if u want to display on the left, you can change the browser source settings to 1080(height), then set the width as you want.

Red Text: You can change the color and font in the css file "stage.css".

Advance to Next Verse: Did you check the " Auto-show on slide change " box? If you did it should change automatically when you advance OpenLP.

Thanks for this tool, any plans to update it to make use of websockets over the current poll server.
In OpenLP 3.0 they will switch from poll server to websockets, i'm currently beta testing OpenLP 2.9.0 and the new stage views are being built using OBS Websocket

Hi RichieTee,

I will have to update it as my church is currently using this tool for services. I can't wait to see OpenLP 3.0. It's already pretty good, but definitely missing some core functionality imo. Thank you for the heads up, I will look at it and see what I can figure out.

God bless.
