Elgato Stream Deck Integration

V-Control 4 now support Elgato Stream Deck to fire tasks and control the playlist.

Have you always wanted an inexpensive universal keyboard with freely assignable keys for V-Control? With keys that can be individually labeled and backed up with images? Then the Elgato Stream Deck is for you. For about 150 Euro you get a keyboard with 15 free assignable buttons.

Individual keys can also act as folders and display additional key layouts. Thus you are not limited to the 15 keys. Elgato provides a more or less comfortable software to assign the keys.

The connection to V-Control is made via the TCP_StreamDeckConnector, which can be downloaded in the download area. The TCP_StreamDeckConnector takes commands from the Stream Deck and forwards them to V-Control via a TCP connection. V-Control must be in remote mode (Configure->Options->RemoteMode->TCP).

Be sure that the Enable TCP Remote Service box is checked.

In Elgato’s Stream Deck software, the buttons are assigned an Open / Launch command. This command takes a file name from the program to be executed as a parameter. The TCP_StreamDeckConnector is selected here. Parameters must then be passed to it to determine which task is to be executed or which playlist action is to be started.
