Is it possible to use the mp4 video link as an input source?
I have a bunch of videos hosted in my dedicated server, I want to make a playlist by loading all the HTTP mp4 links in an m3u list or CSV file with video title separated by video link. Then, I want vMix to stream it. It needs to show Now playing title as the video title

Is this possible in vMix.

I am currently taking the trial and I see no options to use mp4 link as input source

I believe that you can not stream mp4 directly in vMix, but I would create a webpage with an HTML5 player that plays the playlist and then generate a data source to read the current file playing and use a script to rename input. But you can't control that playback in vMix that easily.
