New OBS plugin and helper tools.

JrYouTubeChat

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: https://github.com/dcmouser/obsPlugins

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:

OH I love it!!  So glad you are doing cool things with OBS. 

Have you done anything with tally lights (lights that show if you are on air or not)?  I'm trying to do some automation with philips Hue lights and OBS....like i want the light to automatically turn on and be red if the virtual camera is on, or if it is streaming live, etc.  But the closest I can get is to set a toggle that turns it on or off, but it's not tied to the status, its manual.

It would be exceedingly easy to make a plugin that turned on or off a tally light like a usb blink(1) based on status of recording/streaming, and set the light color based on different status etc.
As long as you have an api to turn the lights on or off, it's very easy to react to OBS signals that are send when broadcasting/recording starts and stops.

So says you the master programmer!  I'll give it a shot.  There are a couple of us complaining about it.  There's a github I'll find later that uses MQTT or something, but when I tried it it crashed my OBS.

if you get yourself a blink(1) usb rgb light, I could probably whip up a little python or lua OBS script for you that showed different colors based on whether you were streaming, recording, etc.

New tool created, a custom plugin for Elgato Streamdeck to send user-configurable websocket messsages to OBS.  I pair this with a small custom OBS plugin to let me use streamdeck to do anything I want in OBS, but it could be used to communicate more generically with websocket tools.

I'm considering whether it might be worth it to extend this plugin to support multiple independent websocket servers (currently it just supports one).
