SOS We are using an external capture card Avermedia live gamer portable 2 to screen capture a PowerPoint presentation from a separate laptop and then feeding that in as a live video source on Watchout. I am able to see the screen capture on the Display computer in the application that is required by the software. As a test, I can also see it as a source in OBS. I added the capture card under "Video In" through Ctrl-W on the display computer. I then went to my production computer and added a Live Video Media using the settings attached. Every time I go online, and go to the capture card on the timeline, the Display computer immediately disconnects and I get a "Network Error." The output is 1080p@60fps. When I had chosen 1080p and 60Hz, I was getting a rendering error. When I choose 29.97Hz or 30Hz, I lose connection. I'm not sure what is going wrong... The display computer is running Windows 10 Pro version 20H2. My production laptop is Windows 11 Education 21H2. I had also tested it with a production laptop that was Windows 10 Pro 21H1. Could the issue be the different Windows versions?? If anyone has any answers or insight, I would much appreciate it!
Hi, I am having issues with cameras, putting out 1080p25. I cannot get them to sho in WO Display (v6.2.1). I am using the newest Decklink driver 10.7.1. In Blackmagic Media Express the camera is there. The new auto-detect in the software tells me the input is 1080p25. But no chance to get it working with WO. I tried with two different cameras. I tried with the Decklink Quad (v1), Decklink Duo (v1+2). When I downgraded the Blackmagic driver to Decklink version 10.1.1 it is working in WO. Another thing is, that I have to use "Decklink Video Capture" instead of "Blackmagic WDM Capture" with version 10.7.1 (or newer than 10.3.7). Otherwise, I only get Input 1 working in WO. All other Inputs are dead, although they are shown in Media Express. Any clues?
Hi, I just wanted to share some of my latest BMD Decklink issues, in the hope to get some feedback from some (worried) users. Does someone know, if the newest driver version 10.5.2 for the BMD Decklink Video Capture Cards (SDI Duo/Quad) works with WO? Currently, we have installed version 10.1.1 and 10.3.7 as these work okay, as far as BMD things work... I discovered, when I updating the driver from 10.1.1 to 10.3.7 (to capture a GoPro4, what's not possible with 10.1.1) on a display PC wit Decklink Quad SDI, that older WO shows, with Live Cameras in it, created with the older driver didn't work anymore. The camera signals came into the card, but WO was not able to show them. I downgraded to 10.1.1 and it wored again. So, does does the WO show save, which BMD Decklink driver was used when creating the show? And does it help re-installing Watchout after I updated the Decklink driver+firmware? The goal is, to be able to run all old shows with most stable decklink driver...if something like this exists. An other strange thing is, that with version 10.3.7, Watchout Display is only able to show live video, when "Decklink Video Capture" is selected. (cntrl+W, then Live Input Devices) On 10.1.1 we used to run the "WDM capture", as recommended. Also, it is not possible, to run a show with Live Video, which was created with a Display-PC where the WMD driver was selected on an other PC where Decklink Video driver is selected. Watchout Display even crashes, when you try to go online on a Live Input in the timeline. So I guess WO loses the connection to the Live Input Card, once the Driver is different from the original. Am I right with this assumption?
