    David, very impressive work on your Streamdeck with Companion.
    I did sign up to get your companion file but did not get it via email nor do I see a way to get it on the site.

    Hello David
    This was exactly what I was looking for.
    You showed several very usefull workflows automated with the Stremdeck device in an impressive and educative way. Respect.

    I’m looking forward to your upcoming video how you build this with Companion and BMD Atem macros.

    I was wondering why you prefer VLC over OBS your videoplayer.
    Kind regards.

      Hi Jan, I mainly use VLC because I find it fast to dump videos in and reorder the playlist items. It accepts a wide range of video formats and there’s not much setting up to do. I haven’t used OBS very much, and you could use that instead, but from what I recall you’d need to set up a scene for each video item individually.
