Elgato Stream Deck

Elgato Stream Deck 15 Button

Table of Contents

The Elgato Stream Deck is a popular device for controlling apps. In essence, it is a keyboard with LED keycaps that can adapt to user configuration. This allows you to set up your own key control panel. This is a good alternative for people who prefer tactile feedback over the more versatile touch-based Remote Control Surface.

The mimoLive Stream Deck Plugin is an open-source project that makes it easier to configure the Stream Deck for operation with mimoLive and provides status feedback for the buttons so that they change the display in response to changes in mimoLive.

Preparing mimoLive

The mimoLive Stream Deck Plugin uses the same HTTP API in mimoLive that the Remote Control Surfaces use. To enable the Stream Deck Plugin to send commands to mimoLive and receive status information, you need to activate Remote Control in the mimoLive Preferences:

Setting up an Action to trigger a Lower Third

Please refer to the Stream Deck App help on general information on how to work with Actions.

Currently, the mimoLive Stream Deck Plugin offers 4 Actions which only differ by the default Icon used on the keyboard. For the purpose of this tutorial, drag the “Live” Action to a button on the Stream Deck. Clicking on the button will show you the configuration for the mimoLive Action. You can give the button a Title and you’ll have to enter the address of the mimoLive API server in the “Server” field. You can find the address in the mimoLive Preferences -> Remote Control:

926d049c 3faa 4356 bad2 31fae5423eb5

Note: If the Stream Deck app is running on the same computer as mimoLive, you can use as the server address.

*Note: You can run the Stream Deck on a different Mac or PC if the network is configured so that the computers can reach each other by a local address.

If you have entered the correct Server address and Remote Control is enabled in mimoLive, you will now be able to see the available documents and the Layers in each document in the API popup:

3866f411 a0e8 4313 be4c 2a5bf02b878a

Simply select the Lower Third. This will automatically enter the API endpoint in the text field right next to the API popup:

e73d39a2 1cc0 476c 8bfe fe1e252b0a37

Finally, select the API command from the Action popup menu:

ff752530 38d1 42ee 814a f0463f00f2fb

You can now toggle the Lower Third using the button on your Stream Deck.
