I think it would be helpful to be able to provide name/value pairs on the vMixCall landing page to pre-populate the Name and Key fields. For example, I can provide my participants with a link like:
https://www.vmixcall.com?Key=1231231234

This would allow them to land on that page and have the opportunity to enter their Name information with the Password already entered.

What I currently do is provide a link such as:
https://www.vmixcall.com...1234&Name=Their+Name

This requires that I reform the link for each participant and send it off prior to the event.

The described feature would allow me to send out pre-configured participant hardware that they can simply plug in, wait to boot, allow the landing page to auto-load at start-up (kiosk mode), and enter their Name to jump right into the event, without my having to have access to the participant kit to update the link for each new participant.

Alternately, you could provide the Name for a single person who will always access using the same kit, and allow them to only have to populate the Password field.

This addition would not be a breaking feature for current users.

It's the little things ;).

Please let me know what you think.

Best,

Not one person wants to enable headless setup for their clients? I'm honestly surprised by this.
