I wish there was a builtin switcher like other similar programs, with the choice of turning it on and off, for those times when needed and when not needed....a simple switcher would be very handy at times.....I see two such programs here for vMix, but both were made for apple, and only one for windows.....it puzzles me, why a programmer would make an addon for a windows based program only usable on an apple machine.....I would think that a windows version be made first, then the apple version....not a great sales approach.....


Just my thoughts, but truely , a switcher would be a great thing to have..

You might consider setting up a midi controller to work as a control surface or "switcher" I bought the AKCMini for less than a $100, and with the little time I've had to experiment with it, I'm impressed with the controller and the whole midi concept. Beside, i believe the midi controller to be a cheaper, faster, more secure option....at least for what I do.

Hope that helps,

Same here, although I use the Numark Orbit (under $40.00) for my "switching'.

I am a conventional person...I like the the look of a professional video switcher....hate having to remember which button does what....with a standard design video switcher, all I have to is look and I know.....simple layout, just like the vMix hardware switcher....there are two software switchers available, but the one I like is for use on an ipad....what I would like is a builtin one like VJDirector2......they have one that adds buttons as you add inputs, so it only has the same amount as the inputs...vidblaster does the same thing, but does not have a 'T' bar....same as Livestream Studio...theirs is builtin, rather than a Third Party plugin...

Why not use the Web controller. Set your shortcuts up with a descriptive title and it makes life easy. Also remember you can choose which shortcuts appear in the controller which you cannot do in the other programs you mentioned.

I use that sometimes, ...I was trying to get some code to design a GUI to replace the one it has.....I remember there was a program I had where I did that with another piece of software, but just can't seem to be able to put my hands on it....neither can I remember the name....but a simple switcher will be very nice.....
