It is possible to display the game screen of a guest in a remote location on the distributed video in real time.
"kukuluLIVE VirtualCam over Network" has been released.
When distributing a game together with a guest, in order to "show the viewer the video from the guest's perspective",
“Broadcast on the guest side and use the PinP function as a joint broadcast” or
There were methods such as "importing screen sharing from Discord etc. using OBS".
It has the following advantages compared to those methods.
・It can be directly integrated into OBS, so there is no need to configure it every time. ・You can display the guest's video on the distribution with almost no lag. ・There is no increase in bandwidth consumption on the viewer side. ・There is no need to set up broadcasts on the guest side. (Can also be broadcast on)
・Video size and display magnification can be fixed ・Videos from two or more guests can be received at the same time, or can be sent while being received ・Inputs from different PCs can be combined into one video ・Can be separated from audio (calls) (use Discord etc. separately)
*Since " kukuluLIVE FaceRig over Network " can also be used at the same time, it can be separated from the FaceRig avatar.
Example 1) When inviting two guests and showing everyone's screen on the broadcast:
Example 2) When transmitting and receiving game footage and FaceRig to each other for joint distribution:
[VirtualCam transmission settings (guest side)]
1. Start "OBS (v26 or later)" or " XSplit Broadcaster " and configure the appropriate settings as well as for distribution.
*You can also use the free version of XSplit, but the logo will be included. There is no need to make a distribution connection from XSplit.
*For OBS (v26 or later), start it and press "Start virtual camera".
2. Open the "kukuluLIVE VirtualCam over Network (Sender)" page below from Chrome or Firefox.
*Firefox has better image quality than Chrome, but uses more bandwidth.
(If you are using Coffret, open Coffret's "Tools" > "VirtualCam over Network" > "Send your OBS/XSplit video to your collaboration partner".)
3. Allow camera use.
*If you are asked to select a device, select "OBS Virtual Camera" if using OBS, or "XSplitBroadcaster" if using XSplit.
*If you cannot use it, please try closing all other applications that are using video (such as OBS) and restarting them.
4. When the "Start VirtualCam Preview" button appears, press it.
5. When the VirtualCam preview starts, press the "Start Publish" button.
6. Once in this state, preparations on the guest side are complete. Please notify the broadcaster of the URL to be set in the other party's OBS. This URL is unique for each kukuluID.

With Coffret, the manual configuration described below is not required.
You can set it in one go from Coffret's "Tools" > "VirtualCam over Network" > "Display collaboration partner's video on OBS".
1. Confirm that the version of OBS is "24.0.3" or later, if not, update to the latest version from "Help" → "Check for Updates".
2. Press the "+" button for sources and add the "Browser" source.
3. Naming the source is optional. Press the "OK" button.
4. Paste the URL of "kukuluLIVE VirtualCam over Network" notified by the guest into "URL".
Set the width to "1280" and the height to "720".
Be sure to check "Shut down source when not visible".
Once the settings are complete, press the "OK" button to close.
5. Settings are complete when the guest's video is displayed on the distribution preview.
Hide browser source when not in use.
When calling the same guest, the setting is completed just by displaying the browser source.
When calling other guests, please change the URL of the browser source or create a second browser source. You can call multiple guests at the same time.
*If your avatar moves jerky:
Go to OBS "Settings" → "Advanced" → "Sources" → "Enable hardware acceleration for browser sources" and restart OBS.
*If the playback start button appears:
After confirming that "Shutdown source when not displayed" is turned on, hide the source → show it, it will be reloaded and you can play normally.
Q. Is it not possible for guests to stream?
A. Yes. XSplit can be dedicated to VirtualCam and streamed from OBS, or OBS can do both.
Q. Can the conventional joint delivery function be used at the same time?
A. Yes. Send and receive each other with "kukuluLIVE VirtualCam over Network" and make sure that the other party's screen is displayed on both streams.
If you get a broadcast slot and join in that state, PinP will be hidden, and only the total number of viewers and the join in the comment section will work.
