Controlling vMix with OctoCue
OctoCue can control vMix using the vMix TCP API, and a common task would be to step forward and backwards through a list input - this will work for image lists, video lists or imported PowerPoint inputs.
To do this, select
Edit config files from the sytem tray menu, and edit
tcp.json as follows:
In the example above, we're controlling a vMix input named
PPT 1 only - update this to match the name of your list input, or leave this parameter out if you want to control whatever is in preview window:
If you're not running vMix and OctoCue receiver on the same machine, update the
remoteAddress IP to suit.
Additionally, you'll probably want to disable the
UDP options in OctoCue receiver - see advanced receiver configuration page for details on how to do this.
If you want more flexibilty and control, consider using OctoCue to trigger vMix scripts - the vMix scripting engine allows the addition of a vast amount of automation and customisation to your vMix show.
Assuming you have two vMix scripts named
octocue_back, here's how to edit
After saving your changes, restart OctoCue Receiver.
Take a look at the advanced receiver configuration page for full details of TCP options, and see vMix's documentation for full details of the TCP API.
