Video on my youtube chat plugin and tools:

People don't know but when donationcoder was being first experimented with in 2003 or so i think, one of the main features on the previous version of the website was a programming school section where people could see assignments for ideas to program and submit their implementations to move forward..  This was before all the great professional programming teaching websites came into being which do a great job of encouraging new coders.  It was very primitive but some people had fun.

I also forgot to post about Dock Sets, a feature I coded for OBS (not a plugin requires changes to OBS source code which I submitted a pull request for but which never got accepted).
This let's you save and load your UI configuration of docks.  I use it to switch between a setup I use for livestreaming and one I use for editing and configuring:

New OBS plugin and helper tools.


This is a combination of 3 "tools" to assist in interacting with your youtube audience during a livestream.  It includes: An OBS plugin dock, a python utility, and an html browser source.  Plus a small modification to the OBS source code.

What does it do:
  • First, a small modification to the OBS source, which is not strictly necessary, which automatically broadcasts a message when you select a youtube broadcast to connect to from the broadcast connect dialog.  This change makes everything that follows automatic.
  • Next, the OBS plugin goes through all of your scenes and sources and changes any browser source which links to a youtube chat to update to the current video id; this ensures any chat browser source is automatically updates to the current livestream
  • Next, the OBS plugin will (auto) launch a python script which connects to the youtube chat (not using youtube api which is rate limited but direct fetching of chat browser page and parsing results using Pytchat), and fetches all chat messages.
  • These chat messages are displaying in a listbox in the OBS dock.
  • The python script will also interface with a blink(1) hardware device to alert you with a physical rgb light if any configured keywords are mentioned.  This will let audience get your attention if there is something you should pay attention to.
  • Any item in the chat list of message can be double clicked, and websocket will be used to send a message to a special browser source you can add to a scene, which will display the highlighted message, along with any youtube avatar, in a lower thirds overlay (using exeldro's open source Downstream Keyere plugin).  See screenshot.  This can be used to highlight someones comment on screen when you want to react to it.  You can even configure and toggle automatic rotation through messages if you just want them shown as they come in.
  • Lastly, you can configure various hotkeys to move through the message list and toggle items, to facilitate using something like a streamdeck to control what's shown.


Available with my other open source OBS plugins, though by no means easy to set up currently, at github:

I have a new idea for a project using wireless and lowest battery power requirements.. maybe we can chat about ideas.

Only happens when you use "save as.." yes?

LaunchBar Commander / Re: Disappeared LBC?
« on: February 04, 2023, 11:42 AM »
LBC data files (MCF) can get very big because LBC stores icon image data in them even at image sizes that it doesn't really need.  There is an option to clean up and minimize the use of image data in the Tools -> Maintenance menu.
The MCP should be tiny, they essentially just tell LBC what MCF file(s) were open and have some general options.

So, all your tree data is in an MCF file, which should be automatically backed up by LBC when you make changes.
And then the MCP files hold very little of value.  If you lost your MCP file you would just start LBC and tell it to open the MCF which has all your data in it.

LBC should be auto creating backups regularly of your MCF files, so it's distressing if it wasn't. 


I apologize for the delay in getting to this.  If you still have an old MCF file with your latest nodes but its not visible, can you confirm this -- and let me know what happens when LBC launches or when you try to File -> Open it.. Does LBC complain or just not show on the screen.  I will add some code now to try to fix up things if LBC finds itself off screen, which I suspect may be the problem.

The DirectX capture beta never made it out of a poorly performing beta.. but im not sure why the Quick Capture bar cared about it..

What happens?

Hi Yuki.

I wonder if this means that your screenshot directory is set to a network location that is not yet available at boot time?
One option to solve this would be to figure out how to tell Screenshot Captor to start later in the bootup process.. I remember there were some tips on how to do this but I don't remember.
If you find the solution I hope you will share with us.
The other option is simply to set your screenshot directory to a local drive location instead of a network share location.

Yes, I think this is the option you are looking for, which by default opens windows file explorer after you do a "save as":

Uncheck the last option on the "Miscellaneous Tweaks" tab of preferences.

When I was a teenager there was an Apple Lisa at the McGraw Hill bookstore in midtown in NYC that my father and I used to walk to.. It was such a beautiful alluring piece of alien technology.

It's actually the download on the main page (upper left): https://www.donation...popular-apps/minicap
I just forgot to update the version # on that page, which I will do so now.

I posted a 3rd video a while ago:

I finally got around to doing another round of work on it to fix some imperfections and I'm pretty happy with it now. But I feel like I learned some beginner lessons maybe worth sharing in another video soon..

To me it looks very compelling, like the designer captured something quite extraordinary in terms of creating an emotionally compelling world where it feels those creatures are alive and real.. I'm glad to hear the reviews are more positive than it seemed at first.

I stumbled across this video.. These games that seem simulation-based seem so intriguing:


Cost: $8
Reviews don't seem so good.

I'm not sure I would play the game myself but I'm quite curious to watch more videos on it.
