To purchase the mimoLive WeatherSnoop layer, please go to the mimoLive Buy page and purchase the “mimoLive WeatherSnoop Layer”. Right afterwards you will receive an email with an unique download link. Please download the .zip file linked and extract it. Finally you will find a .tvlayer file, that you just need to double click. mimoLive will open and install the layer that you will then find in the Layer Template Repository.

Setting Up WeatherSnoop

After you successfully connected your weather station hardware with WeatherSnoop app you can start the build-in HTTP web server by selecting WeatherSnoop 3 ⇢ Preferences…. This will get you to the preference pane of WeatherSnoop:

To start the web server of WeatherSnoop check the Server my weather data via HTTP option. The status line below should change to “Server is running.” * Now click the Server Page button below the status line in order to open the webpage WeatherSnoop is serving. Your preferred web browser should open and display the following web site:

866e1732 41ba 4574 be3d d97446321154

Please right click on the “JSON” link to reveal a context menu to copy the link to the clipboard. You will need the link in the WeatherSnoop layer in mimoLive in the next section.

Setup mimoLive

Switch to mimoLive. * Create a new blank document or open up an existing document where you want to add the live weather data. * Make sure you have successfully installed the WeatherSnoop layer by selecting the “+” button at the top of the layer stack of your mimoLive document window. Scroll through the layers list and find the sunny Sun:

ff490334 395e 439f bb8a a1c4bae3c36d

By drag&drop add the layer to your Layer Stack at the very top. * Select the WeatherSnoop layer in the layer stack and find the WeatherSnoop HTTP Server section in the settings pane on the left:

Paste the URL you copied in the previous section into this field.

*Sometimes the URL isn’t working out of the box.
You may have to replace the host name in the URL by the IP adress the WeatherSnoop HTTP server is on. If the WeatherSnoop app is on the same machine as mimoLive you can enter as the host. The URL should look something like this:

Done! After some seconds the preview of your layer should display the weather data from your weather station. Now you can switch your layer live to see its output in your video production.

Customize the Layer Output

Now that you successfully installed the connection from mimoLive to your weather station hardware via WeatherSnoop its time to customize the visual output of the layer. Because the layer inherits from Static Text Layer the basic graphical parameters of the layer are described here: Static Text Layer.

There is an additional parameter group called Units:

1880f22c 460a 4970 bfe4 5cc05900175c
Pressure Select the prefered pressure units for output from inHg (Inches Of Mercury), cb (Centibars) or mb (Millibars)
Temperature Options for temperatur units are F (Fahrenheit) or C (Celsius)
Speed Speed units can be mph (Miles Per Hour), kph (Kilometers Per Hour), mps (Meters Per Second) or kn (Knots)
Rain The rain fall can be outputted as in (Inches), mi (Miles), mm (Millimeters), cm (Centimeters), km (Kilometers)

In the text field you can use several replacement tags that will be replaced automatically in the live output:

This list may vary from the used weather station hardware. Please check the JSON output of the WeatherSnoop HTTP server for the actual key values if you don’t see any text in the output of mimoLive
