NEW TUTORIAL – BlueLive: Livestream Studio switcher controller



NewImage

Sometimes you need one button for the job, and sometimes you need many.

This project is a fully enclosed 3D-printed Bluetooth controller, powered by a METRO 328 and LiPoly battery, mapped to use with Livestream Studio.

Using the serial input on the Bluefruit EZ-Key and some MCP23017 i2c expanders, there’s a whole load of buttons. Arcade buttons. Pushbuttons. Buttons and buttons and buttons!

Why Livestream Studio?

Livestream Studio is a powerful, streamlined video streaming software designed for use with PCs and Livestream’s own switcher boxes. While incredibly robust, there isn’t MIDI support for using just any controller you’d like. Using the hotkey portion of the software, this bypasses the need to use a regular keyboard to get at specific functions.

But what if I don’t use Livestream Studio?

Map it to whatever you’d like! The code is pretty heavily documented, so feel free to modify it to your needs.
