+1, using the external output option seems to have the same amount of delay as NDI. It's about half second which is a problem for how we need to use the return PGM.

+1. No latency access to Mix 1 would be a great feature. We can already do this on Mixes 2-4, a simple 'Mix 1 Input' is all we want.

I'm currently working around this by publishing output1 to NDI and bringing it back in. But the delay is non-optimal.

In our use case it's to provide a customized program return for VMix call. Our moderator wants to see the chat window of our platform. Rather than having the platform open on a separate device and cause audio and eyeline issues, we're creating a separate multi view that goes to ouptut 2 which is then used as video source for VMix call. But to get output 1 into the input for this multiview we have to round-trip through NDI.

Please! Want to make a customizable return feed for vMix callers.

One workaround that I have used for rudimentary output as input is the following:

  • Create blank input
  • Add trigger to all of the inputs that you are going to use or cut to live:
  • OnTransitionIn - SetMultiViewOverlay - Blank input - with value 1,0
  • 1,0 - 1 is the layer ID. 0 - it is vMix internal value for output, so it basically just sets output as multiview layer 1
  • Your blank input is now your rudimentary output. No fades, overlays etc. but also no latency.


Not the most elegant solution but uses almost no resources and has no latency.

Interesting workaround MartLieb!

I tried, and it works. But as you point out is cumbersome and limiting.

I wonder what Martin thinks of this "glitch", as he is reluctant to implement a feature that might result in an infinite loop ;)
I created one, and my vMix just kept running..

Side note, it is easy to create such loops in Zoom when bringing in a pinned participant to vMix and sending it back when spotlighted :D
