Hello,

Thanks for this great tool! I was able to get it working on my own laptop. However, when I tried it on the church computer the custom dock is blank - it's just white. Has anyone else had this, and if so, how did you fix it?

Thanks!

Yes, you have to change the verse in OpenLP for it to go to the next verse in OBS, otherwise the person operating OpenLP may begin fighting for control with the livestream guy. I can look into if it would be practical to allow the user to control OpenLP through OBS.
Hi I have got this working and it's very cool. Our OBS machine is the same one that also does OpenLP, so is it possible to make one of the "Display Next" buttons to "Next line / slide" ? That way we can remote control OpenLP and use your extension properly.

Add the custom browser dock from the OpenLP main, you can control your service from within OBS studio, change from slides to lyrics to verses, advance or go back in your slides or lyrics, etc.

Hello. I have gone through this process but I'm having an issue.

The lyrics are displayed in the dock in OBS. I can see them there in OBS, and if I change the lyrics in Openlp, they change in the dock. Which is great.

But, they are not actually displaying on the camera screen as an overlay. I'm not sure how to fix this. I don't know if it's an issue with the "theme" in openlp or what it might be. Any advice would be great. Thank you.

It seems for me:
1) you don't have the custom stage folder yet, or
2) you haven't added the source in your scene
Take a look at the first post in this thread, it clearly explain how to make it work

Hi i am struggling to setup controls in obs dock. I cannot seem to find the 'tools' to download and put in the stream folder. Can anyone point me in the right directions to download the control and stage files?

Hi all, I have an issue I'm hoping to get input on.

I want to be able to make OBS change the active scene automatically when an OpenLP slide is changed.

I have the advanced scene switcher plugin running, with various scenes and cameras running through a sequence based on time. For instance:
Scene 1 is a ptz camera input for our pastor.
Scene 2 is a split input with that camera and a openlp browser input for slides.

The scene switcher runs automatically, 3 mins on pastor only and 1 min on pastor/slides. I want to have the switcher be interrupted and switch to scene 2 when a slide is changed in openlp, if OBS is currently on a scene with just the pastor.

Any thoughts on this or if its even been done? I've got the openlp custom browser dock switching slides from obs -> openlp, but I want it the other direction. The browser input scene works fine for showing slides.

Is there a way for OBS or the advanced scene switcher plugin to detect a slide/input change through the browser, and trigger a change of active scene to one with slides?

Essentially I'd like to eliminate having someone man the OBS machine and have it all automated based on what the openlp man is doing.

Thanks!

Hi Everyone,
Is there a way to change the color of the background of the text? I would like to make the background a solid color. Thank you!
