[SOLVED] output multiple syphon streams


  • Hello, 

    I am just getting started with Syphon Virtual Webcam and I am wondering if it is possible to output two Syphon streams at the same time. I have two stages in the same scene. I would like to send the output of Stage 1 to my remote performer via OBS Ninja and Stage 2 (which is the view the audience will see) into Zoom at the same time. I know how to output the stages to Syphon Virtual Webcam (and I can switch between the different stages there), but when I select the OBS Virtual Cameras in both Zoom and OBS Ninja I can not differentiate between the streams of the two stages. 

    What I am trying to achieve is a setup where I can project Stage 1 into the living room of my performer who has his own camera set up that I am routing back into Isadora (currently via screen capture) and finally after some manipulation from Stage 2 into ZOOM. 

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. 

    THANK U in advance for reading!

    Hi, If you use the syphon client in obs, it does work fine. You can then use the syphon virtual webcam in zoom.

  • @michel For now I figured out that I can do the separation of the two streams in NDI easily but I will try the OBS set up you are suggesting as well. Thank you for your suggestion!

    Just keep in mind that NDI needs more cpu than syphon. If you need the feed on the same machine syphon is the better way to go.
