How to use Skype NDI with Xsplit Broadcaster, OBS Studio & Streamlabs OBS (Plus NDI Virtual Input)


In this video we walk through how to enable and use the new Skype NDI integration with Xsplit Broadcaster, OBS Studio (Open Broadcaster Software Studio) and Streamlabs OBS.

This video also shows how to use Skype NDI on your local network, as well as how to use NDI Virtual Input to send a return feed back from Xsplit Broadcaster and OBS Studio, which could be helpful if needed over your network (Edit for clarification: As briefly mentioned this is not needed locally – Xsplit has a virtual camera built in and there is a virtual plugin for OBS Studio. The purpose of this demonstration is for those situations where the virtual camera may not suffice, such as over the network).
