I can see that vMix natively supports JSON but I have a feeling this is an HTTP call rather then handling raw JSON data feed. Does anyone know a way to get raw json data in to vMix so that i can populate on screen graphics with the data we get from motorsport racing timing system.

I have from the timings company a host and port number which will on connect just send data to me. I need to harvest that data and populate via GT fields for the on screen graphics. I know how to design in GT designer its just working out how to connect to the source to get the data in the first place.

Anyone able to help???

Regards,

Steve

yes that talks about it all very quickly doesnt go in to depth. I know how to get data in I do it a lot with Excel and Google Sheets. This is a different stream of data its RAW JSON not just linking to a json file on the web using the HTTP Web Call API.

You could write (or hire someone to write) a small program that reads the stream, and writes the most recent JSON packet to a file, that vMix would watch for changes.

For the lowest latency possible, for example displaying a live game clock, instead of writing to a file that vMix polls, you could call directly into the vMix API to update titles with the proper values.
