start/stop obs from a command line


New Member
there is a github package called obs cli that use the command line interface to manipulate the obs data such as stream title, start, stop, record and whatever but it didn't work under most recent versions. i am interesting in automating with shorcuts under my i3 desktop environment, since the default obs shortcuts are only working when the program are present on the screen, anyway i am interested in how much of this functionality are available in a recent obs versions without plugins, you seems to be able to start a stream, but not, for example to change a stream title or to stop it (altough pkill obs seems to work fine but probably technically wrong). pls help.
