Live Feeds

Video feeds from cameras and other video devices connected to the computer can be played from their own cues or from the background layer of another cue. As a general rule-of-thumb, if a device works as a video source in Windows Movie Maker, Quicktime (Mac), Photobooth (Mac), Skype, or IM program, it should also work as a feed in MediaShout.

 

Playing a video feed from the background of a cue

 

  1. Connect a camera or other feed source to the computer (via FireWire, USB, or video capture card input). Note: make sure that the device is powered up and that Windows or Mac OS recognizes the device before proceeding.
  2. Open a cue in the Inline Editor. Tip: If you only want the live feed in its own cue, add a Blank Cue to your script then open it in the Inline Editor.
  3. Click Insert Object > Video > Live Feed.
  4. Select the video source.
  5. Select the audio source.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click the Play button below the Inline Editor to fire the cue.
