Hi,

Currently the only way to change a participant source is by right clicking on the input or via the zoom manager, right clicking a name.

Can this be accessible via a shortcut, TCP or any other method? We use companion, so it'd be great to be able to control it that way. It would replace us using Zoom OSC.

Thank you,

This is definitely needed. Either an index number or just previous and next controls.

vMix has their names already from the SDK, so we could simply have Companion set to point to specific names. ZoomOSC has that function, as long as the name matches. You can disable "allow participants to rename themselves" and set their names as host.

See ZoomOSC companion example:

This is definitely needed - I was expecting a whole load of API stuff for Zoom in v27 but there is literally nothing.

vMix keeps the original names and doesn't update if a participant changes it, so don't even need to disable participant renames in Zoom.

What might be even better is a way in the Zoom Manager to assign numbers to certain participants - so you could preset your commands with "zoom assign 1", "zoom assign 2", "zoom assign 3", etc then choose in the manager which participant is assigned those numbers.

Is it? Can you expand? Does it just use the "change zoom source to this name" API command?

In Docs from https://www.vmix.com/hel...utFunctionReference.html

ZoomSelectParticipantByName Value = Name Value,Input

Use like:
API.Function("ZoomSelectParticipantByName",Input:="NameOfInput",Value:="HowNameAppearsInZoomManager")

I hope this helps.

Right, but you still need to know the names of the people you want to use, in the exact format their name appears in the meeting, and then go into vMix shortcuts/Companion GUI and type those names.

What I want is a way to cycle through *everyone* on the call without knowing their names or having to type them in, similar to cycling through a data source using previous/next buttons.

I feel your pain. And I support the spirit of the feature request. The text might benefit from an update, and the feature exits as requested. Maybe throw your support under: https://forums.vmix.com/...-as-a-Data-Source-option

As backup plans, you can:
a) Copy the name from the Zoom Manager chat box where each participant should be represented in messages indicating joined/left/camera on/off, etc. or
b) Use ZoomISO to send a participant list to an intermediary app via OSC, which could update a file to use as a Data Source. Possible that Node.js could do this...

I hope this helps!

Chad
