NDI Version Release Notes

Par rlsafran
I just downloaded the latest NDI Tools and always compare the file size to see if anything has changed. If you go to "C:\Program Files\NewTek\NDI 4 Tools\Scan Converter", for example, right mouse and look at properties -> details tab - you'll see a version number. The last version I downloaded was 4.1.4 and the latest is 4.1.6. It would be great if there was a readme file next to the download page link or in the NDI 4 Tools directory where you can find out what has changed, been fixed or is still a pending issue.

Thanks,
Rob

NDI Connect Update Compatibility with TC1 build 2020-01-16?

Par bwood
I recently updated my TC1 systems to the latest software (2020-01-16) and found today that it no longer works properly with the NewTek Connect application (19-07-03), going NDI to SDI. The output seems to be about 1 or more frames per second, instead of the 29.97 I am expecting (I'm in 1080i). Other sources (PTZ, Scan Converter, NewTek Connect on other system) are all still functional, just the newly updated TC1 systems are acting funny in Connect.

Is there a new version of NewTek Connect planned or available that works with the latest NDI package?

Thanks!

Studio Monitor Crashing on All Platforms

Par lonseidman
I downloaded the current version of NDI Tools to my Mac and two Windows PCs. Studio Monitor is crashing on all of them - is this a bug in the currently available version? Strange that two separate Windows PCs and a Mac will exhibit the same behavior.

UPDATE: Also it appears virtual input is crashing too. The Windows PCs are both running with Nvidia GPUs if that makes any difference.

Here is the error I'm seeing on the Mac:

Application Specific Information:
abort() called
terminating with uncaught exception of type Processing::NDI::Plugins::Lib::URL::parser::build_ error: Port defined, but host is empty

updating firmware on NDI-enabled Panasonic camera

Par rwzahora
We have an NDI-enabled Panasonic AW-HE40S that was installed by a vendor. The firmware for the camera is 1.82. Since the installation Panasonic has released two firmware updates, one of which may be useful to us.

Can we install the latest firmware without effecting the NDI capability or is new firmware from NewTek needed?

NDI - Native recording

Par Malapati
Hi,

could anyone point me in the right direction where I could read up more on TriCaster's new NDI native recording?

Some of the tech data aswell as what the additional "metadata" files that get recorded for each .mov clip, particularly on the TriCaster, are used for.

Thanks in advance.

NDI over VPN

Par adebeau
Hi team,
I have a specific event where I will have 2 different locations at 800m in a city, and I could not have a fiber or cable between the 2 sites.
The only thing I have is 2 x Internet Fiber boxes. So I am assuming having 200M between the 2 sites in VPN.

I am thinking about using NDI on a L2 VPN, but the 1st tests I have done are not positive ( I am using access manager to avoid discovery issues).
So I have a NDI SOurce ---VPN ---INTERNET ----- VPN ---- NDI Monitor

The result is that NDI monitor cannot play the source.

Is there anything mandatory in addition to full TCP/UDP access between NDI Source & Monitor ( I m not talking about broadcast IP for auto-discovery).

Any MTU issues ?

Will it work with a L3 VPN - without autodiscovery - ?

Is there any network spec on NDI protocol somewhere ?

many thanks,
PS: Of course NDI.cloud can help, but as the 2 internet boxes are on the same city :)

NDI Connect App - embedding audio

Par chrisaby
I installed the ndi connect app on my computer trying to embed a local audio source (mikrofone) to an ndi video source (NDI PTZ Camera).
I can see the local audiosource on the meter beside the video window, but when I want to control the embedded audio with ndi monitor I can't hear anything.
When trying the same thing with a local camera (not ndi) everything works fine... Is it possible that embedding audio only works with local video interfaces but not with incoming ndi sources?
Is that only possible with NDI Connect Pro?
I use the free NDI Connect App.

NDI Discovery Outside of Router

Par imryh
Hello.

Due to some issues, we've had to move our TC Mini and all connected BirdDog Studios to a small local router.
Everything is fine inside the router. Everyone discovers everyone.

I'm trying to get the TC Mini NDI to appear outside of the router too. So that other NDI devices on the bigger network can see it.

I've set up port forwarding on the router for ports 49152 - 65535. But still nothing.

Any ideas how to get that to work?

Thanks.

Tools 4 Access Manager question and comment

Par marksctv
In preparation for a cross subnet W10 PC to PC NDI connection for production this summer, I downloaded NDI Tools 4 and started experimenting. I have VLC/NDI running on one PC with the receiver on a different subnet being StudioMonitor. It's working well. But I noticed that even after reboots of both PC's, I no longer need to run Access Manager. Can I get an explanation of where the path info is saved on the receiving PC. Also, the Access Manager executable needs to be signed to avoid the "unknown publisher" message. If the user is running as a Windows user rather than administrator, the user needs to enter an administrator's userid and password which is not allowed in our installation.

NDI Scan Converter ignores screen orientation.

Par Nardella
So, I have encountered an amusing issue. If I rotate my display 180 degrees using windows settings, then I broadcast using Scan Converter the transmitted image will be upside down. This doesn't cause me any significant issues, but I thought you'd like to know.

NDI SDK licensing

Par abo
Hi,

I am new on this forum.
English is not my native language and the legal terms in the NDI SDK license are unclear to me.
Google translate provides an even more obscure translation :mad:
Anyway I understand that the license seems extremely restrictive.
I know that NDI is already integrated into GNU license opensource applications like OBS studio.

My question is simple: do we have the right to freely use the NDI SDK in an open source software under GNU license?
if yes : Good ! Question closed :)
if no : What must be done step by step to be able to use the NDI SDK in the application as for the obs-ndi plugin in OBS studio?

Thanks for your help.

Scan Converter makes mouse cursor disappear in some apps.

Par Nardella
Hello, in Galcon 2 and some versions of minecraft if Scan Converter is running with "show mouse cursor" on then the mouse cursor is only visible on the NDI feed and not the host system when using certain apps.

Scan converter always set to silent when starting.

Whenever I launch Scan Converter it is set to silent, how can I fix this?

Small School Video Distribution System

Par UnCommonGrafx
Good day,
I am in need of a system and I am in need of your thoughts as to whether NDI can assist me.

I have the opportunity to transform my school video playout into something much more dynamic than our present simple video playout system over 19 apple tvs. This is sent out over 4 banks of mini macs to two different "channels". There is only playback capability and people have to run around to the 19 apple tvs when an update of material is put out. I abhor this system and refuse to use it.

I have and want to use CasparCG for play with Vimesh's simple playout program for CasparCG. By no stretch of the imagination is Vimesh's playout simple: it gives a lively feel to the output when you have immediate and on the spot control over what's on all those tvs! In the past, this system has proven to be dynamic enough to keep students engaged in the programming and content of what goes on the tvs.
In trying to use CasparCG, I am unable to get the assists I need to get a distribution tool up and going; my experience is old so forgive me: the ms streaming media server is what I would have had them re-install on our server. Lacking that, I have tried to multicast with UDP.
Our system doesn't seem to be able to do this at the distances I'm working with. Or is configured wrong. Again, assists are something I plan to assertively seek in the next few months. UDP, without a distribution system, isn't going to work.

Before I invest in bucks for all these apple tvs for ndi tools, does anyone know if this will work without a distribution server? And if not, you got one to suggest? I'll even build a linux box for it, at this juncture, as I believe I am on my on on the Engineering side. Got bucks to buy but need to buy wisely.

Your thoughts since you've read this far?

Livetext 3.0 and Live Only Output to Tricaster 410

Par jaeger33
High School teacher here and about to stream an 8 game basketball tournament. Had a 455 Tricaster before this year and loved iVGA and our external graphics operator on a seperate Win machine running LiveText and the way it came in as a NET input on the 455.

Having now upgraded to an NDI capable machine I am struggling with getting Just the visually pleasing scoreboard part of Livetext 3.0 to show up on the 410 machine. I can get the entire desktop of the computer running Livetext to show up as an input (Using Scan Converter) but I don't want to see the entire LiveText program on screen I just want the scoreboard. I know I could work around by cropping and keying out parts of the livetext screen but it was really slick on the older version where the NET input gave you the option of either mirroring the whole screen or just the LiveText live output. I think I am probably just missing a step somewhere but haven't' been able to find any answers so I turn the question to you all.

Thanks for your help

iCaster help

Par bosk
Hey working on a TC-1 Build# 7-1-19223
just downloaded the iCaster for my iPad, I'm connected using the correct IP, the default layout with the macros work.

My issue now is no video comes through, none of the inputs or outputs at any quality level show up.
I have tried my own layout and still getting the same results of no video showing.

My iPad is running 12.4.1 OS

Does this app still have support?

any tips would be greatly appreciated

Bird Dog vs. Spark

Par imryh
Hello.

Since our new Tricaster Mini 4K doesn't have any physical video inputs and outputs, we've been looking into expanding our mobile NDI converter fleet.
We currently have 6 sparks, which we've used over the last 2-3 years, and have been happy with.

We're looking to get 8 more devices. Either from Newtek or BirdDog.
Does anyone have any opinions on the matter?
I realize the difference between NDI and NDI|HX. But, beyond that.

Is the BirdDog Studio any good? Should we bother getting that, or wait until their 4K line is out?

Thanks.

Here's how to use virtual input with facebook messenger and other stubborn things.

Par Nardella
TL;DR below.
So, I had a delightfully frustrating time trying to get NDI Virtual Input working with facebook. I wanted to be able to switch cameras and do chroma key on my video calls. The problem is that facebook will choose a single webcam from the list of webcams on your computer and if you have other cameras there seems to be no way to have that webcam be NDI Virtual Input. I scoured the internet for applications and browser extensions that let you choose the webcam that the browser shows to facebook, but no luck. Other websites allow you to select the webcam from a list, but facebook does not. It appears that no major browser (chrome, edge, firefox) allows this functionality either. Starting Virtual Input before plugging in the webcam does not help.

The solution is to use two computers or a computer with a VM. One with just NDI Virtual Input and the other with your webcams. You can use anything that outputs NDI to get your webcams to the computer with NDI Virtual Input, I prefer OBS with the NDI Integration Plugin.

Manual NDI Tools install without administrator rights

Par editmix
I'm starting to use NDI at a large corporate media dept that has a TriCaster. I'm trying to utilize some of the corporate owned Windows 10 computers but the IT dept has very strict security limitations on what software is allowed to be installed. I've been able to install OBS as a portable application and it works great. Unfortunately I cannot install NDI tools since I don't have administration rights. Is there a way to do a portable or manual install of NDI?

Scan Converter won't change resolution

NDI Scan Converter Crash/Stopping mid boradcast

Par jgome91
Scan Converter seems to just stop abruptly during my streams, giving me no error message or warning. I've had to close it out in task manager and reopen it to have it work for about 5 minutes and then stop again. I've disabled onboard graphics due to me having my GTX 1050ti and also set the program to run primarily on the 1050 in the windows settings. I've set exceptions in my firewall and even found that sometimes running chrome will cause it to freeze. idk what is going on here but its ruining my streams as of late. :(
