Hello, I searched around to see if this request had already been talked about and couldn't find one specifically so I apologize if there is one already started that I didn't find.

What I am requesting is to have an option in the vMix plugin for Elgato Stream Deck of a Toggle switch. I run a lot of video production, and rarely do I want my mic to be on, so I use a button to mute and unmute my mic with a shortcut for Audio On/OFF currently mapped for with a Hotkey. Then in Stream Deck I use a system hotkey toggle and 2 graphics to show on and off. It would be great if I could have the actually vMix shortcut be a toggle, then I could just map the graphics to the toggle.

The reason this makes a difference, is that during productions I will occasionally need to open another program to do something, if this is happening and I use my hotkey it won't work because vMix is not the in focus program. If it was a direct shortcut key it would still work the same as my other keys.

This would be super helpful for me to monitor on the stream deck if I am activating or deactivating something like a mic or an overlay.


Thanks!

This will change your life. It puts the Elgato app to shame.

Why make it so difficult? Don't use the Stream Deck hotkey to link to a shortcut in vMix but use the website option and give it the webrequest option for the same (shortcut)function . no issue with needing to have vMix GUI in focus or have to resort to companion (as if that is the solution to every SD use) . While the vMix streamdeck plugin makes it easy to create a vMix shortcut linked to the SD it also can create issues especially when Switching or moving streamdecks.
