Hello,

the new vmix call feature is amazing!
My big question is the following: is there any possibilities to share my guest screen and receiving in Vmix side? The best if my guest can switch between the webcam and desktop sharing (like between the frontcamera and backside camera). Is there any solution for this? With plugin, or something else?

Thank you!

If your guest use windows, simplest way will be Vmix on guest computer.
And conncect Vmix to Vmix.

Manycam is alternative, but its not that cheaper solution, than basic HD Vmix.
And wit Vmix your guest have 60 day free trial.

Hello,

thanks for the idea, I will test it!
I forgot one thing: we must present this solution also for OSX, because of this VMIX install on the guest computers is not a solution... I think the best solution if Martin implement the screen sharing feature. :) Ok, I don't know, how hard is it...

At the moment, if your guest is showing a prepared presentation get them to send it to you. You can go through it adding their webcam stream as a vmix call.

They could use SparkoCam to have a virtual webcam. That lets them desktop share with their webcam in a window, but it takes effort on their part.

It would be ideal if vMix Call supported desktop share and webcam, but that's a tall order. Many webrtc services don't support seeing both streams at the same time.

Skype does allow simultaneous screen sharing along with a webcam video of the remote presenter.
I have often used this method on a second laptop with Skype installed - the remote guest presenter can now share both their own video talking head along with their slides, which is brought into the webcast using the vMix Desktop Capture program which is installed on the second laptop, which is also being used by the local presenters during a conference or workshop.

Here's a demo of using two calls from the same guest. One via Chrome Browser & www.vMixCall.com. the 2nd using vMix2vMix vMix Call.

P.S. Thanks for the correction, kol0.

That's really cool, right?

With Shot1 in the Output window and Shot2 in the Preview window, all I do is click the Merge button in the Transition bar between the two windows.

Or, better than that, set up a series of Shortcuts that Merges to Shot2 regardless of whether Shot2 is in Preview or not.

The shortcut would
1. Load Shot2 into Preview
2. Activate the Merge function

Yes, one short cut can do two (or more) jobs nearly instantaneously.

Hi

even if vMix to vMix is certainly the best option for screen sharing through vMixCall, maybe ManyCam can also be a solution

https://manycam.com/

The free version is limited (watermarked) but includes desktop capture.

Another option is to use SplitCam which I just reinstalled after many years.

It allows to share and use a single webcam with multiple applications at the same time
New features also include video, image and desktop sharing. There's even a PiP mode!

Free. But displays ads for adult webcam services! (in the application UI, not the video content!)
