Streamer.bot supports both OBS WebSocket versions, v4.9+ and v5+
This documentation refers to OBS WebSocket version v5+
Adding at least one OBS connection will allow Streamer.bot to control your OBS.
Once configured, connected OBS sessions will report their status on this screen.
Right-Click -> Add to define a new OBS connection
Enter any name or label to describe this OBS instance, e.g.
Select the version of OBS WebSocket to use for this connection.
As of OBS Studio v28.0, OBS WebSocket v5+ is included by default.
To continue using OBS WebSocket v4.9+, you must install the obs-websocket-4.9.1-compat plugin
It is recommended to update to v5+ if you are currently using an older version.
Default is localhost,
To connect to another OBS instance on your local network, you can enter the local IP address, e.g.
Default is: v4.9+ =
4444 or v5+ =
It's recommended to keep this the same unless you are using multiple OBS portable installs on your same desktop.
Not required, devices can only connect to your OBS if they're on the same network as you.
When toggled this auto connects your OBS connection when you launch streamer.bot.
When toggled this tries to reconnect (by default every 30s) when streamer.bot loses connection with your OBS.
When Streamer.bot loses connection with your OBS this by default will try to reconnect every 30s, but you can change it to what you want.
