Hi All,

Running 23.0.0.68

I have a vMix Call dialed in that's mostly one-way, the remote site asked me not to send a return feed in order to reduce bandwidth. However we're getting Output 1 Program instead. I've got all my outputs tied up on this instance so I can't make a black output to send.

And before anyone says use SRT, please stop.

None needs to be selected when adding the call input initially.
It can't be changed after the fact due to how the underlying protocol for the call works.

Hi Martin,

Do you think the help pages could be updated to add this important piece of information? In general, there are lots of useful nuggets of information scattered around in various forum posts, but actually finding them can be difficult. I understand that you might not want help pages to get cluttered with technical details that might not immediately be of interest to most users, but an explanation like yours above is both very helpful and brief. A more detailed explanation of a topic could be in the form of a link to another page (or even a forum post?) to keep the main help pages concise.

Maybe the section of the help page about vMix Call Inputs could be updated to read something like:

Video Source: Select either Output 1, Output 2-4 (4K and Pro editions only) or None as the return video feed the remote guest will see
If None is selected, no audio or video will be sent to the remote guest, this is useful for situations where you need a remote feed only and don't expect to interact
with the caller. None needs to be selected when adding the call input initially and can't be changed after the fact (due to how the underlying protocol for the call works).

Thanks,
Matthew

I posted this problem 3 years ago. Whether there is a possibility or not was never answered.
