In a previous post, we talked about Web Captioner basics and gave a short description of what Web Captioner is and how to use it. You can read that post here.


So a lot of our readers have begun to look into Web Captioner since our last post and many users have been asking questions about Web Captioner’s vMix integration. We have put together a quick tutorial showing how to utilize this amazing feature!


Web Captioner vMix Setup

First go to the Web Captioner> Settings> vMix page.

Next, Install the Chrome Extension and click Next

Then, copy the vMix Web Controller URL found in vMix at Settings> Web Controller> Web Site Address and paste it into the text field back in Web Captioner.

After clicking Next your connection will be validated and you will be taken to the next page. Click “Download the Web Captioner Title Template” for vMix.

Once that is complete go back to vMix and go to Add Input > Title/XAML> Input Select> Browse.

Then, open the Web Captioner title template you downloaded. The title will then appear in the Recent tab of the Add Input> Title/XAML.

Double-click it, In the Title Editor that appears, optionally customize font and text size, Close it when you are finished.

Once complete go back to Web Captioner and select “Test And Finish Setup.” When you are ready to start sending captions, click Start Captioning on the main Web Captioer page. Poof! It works!
