Control from vMix

The most straightforward way to get Ontime synced with vMix is by using Ontime’s HTTP API, which provides easy access to the apps playback functions

Adapting from this vMix forum post we see that a workflow could look like:

  • Go to Settings - Scripting and click Add
  • Paste the following and Save
' This code creates a POST request to start an event with id 4b044
Dim request As WebRequest
request = WebRequest.Create("http://localhost:4001/playback/start?eventId=4b044")
Dim response As WebResponse
request.Method = "POST"
request.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
Dim stream As Stream = request.GetRequestStream()
response = request.GetResponse()
Dim sr As New StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream())

From here, you should be able to add the script as needed. Please follow vMix documentation for the next steps
