So I've used the Web API, but was unaware of the TCP API until this week. I'm attempting to use it, but am confused!
What are you sending the commands with? A browser? script code? In a browser, all I get is a search response. It's obvious I am misinterpreting the information provided. I had been using Autohotkey to send commands via web commands to vMix, but if the TCP API is more efficient, its obviously the way to go. Just need a little push in the right direction to get started.

Can anyone give me a push?

First you need to connect to vMix using TCP protocol.
Then transmit the command in UTF-8 format.
Also check the answer from the sent command success or error.
