Crossover / LiveSplit / OBS?


Wonder if anyone can help.

Is there anyway to allow cross to “talk” to OBS?

I have a rather specific setup, I’m running LiveSplit via CrossOver and would like to run an autosplitter. In order for this to work I need to let LiveSplit see OBS. There’s a drop down option that says “OBS Window Capture” but when selected, it just displays a message saying “video disconnected”. Essentially it needs to be able to view my OBS but can’t.

Another method would to run a virtual cam from OBS but again, I can get LiveSplit via CrossOver to see this.

Is there anyway to get them to talk/see each other?

Many thanks for any help!

Unfortunately, I don't believe so.

I guess you're talking about this?

It seems it needs a DirectShow source. It might be possible to set up a DirectShow source filter that can pull from an RTMP stream that you could configure OBS to stream to, or perhaps the HLS feed for your stream if you are streaming online. I don't know the details of how to set that up, though.

Actually, I know there are DirectShow filters that can capture the screen. If that happens to be compatible with CrossOver, it might be a simpler approach.
