OBS Integration For Polls

#1

Would love to see a way to integrate polls into OBS so that they can be shown on the stream instead of just in the Twitch chat.

#2

Oh yes, I would love that aswell!

Be a little more specific on how you want it done and I might be able to make a custom script and/or edit.

Would be easy to integrate. Just a graph that shows the poll-results live on stream? Doesn’t sound that difficult.

#6

Exactly this. Just a simple way to show live poll results on screen as the votes are coming in.

#7

In which case, we do accept pull requests. Would you be willing to write the code and submit it to support this?

I would see this working like the alerts page does. That means needing a websocket connection and a new method to push data to the page to indicate a poll started, results in between, and that a poll closed.

If it is going to be real time, then the poll system has to push an event to the websocket server to let it know to push results to the page, or, just have the websocket server push so often. I am not sure if I would suggest real time.

API calls could also be used rather than the websockets, but, I imagine that there should be some way that the Core has to let the page know that a poll started and stopped without the page having to constantly hammer the bot looking for that status.

I’m currently working on this this weekend. Hope I can create some cool results for you.

Honestly, I’d love to see this with polls and the betting system. That way you can see which poll results are winning and what the odds are on the betting system with a simple bar graph.

+1 for this awesome idea!
If the problem is developer capacity I can join in development!

I paused currently, cause I didn’t had the time. I think last time I finished sending the votes to the “Frontend”. But maybe we can copy much code from the new Panel - cause there the “cake”-chart is updating with every vote. So maybe it’s easier now to display the votes on stream.

Starting working on this myself since a lot of people have been asking for it.

Here’s what it looks like so far, it should be in our next release.
