Release Notes

v1.0.4

Hints, Tips, Known Issues

  • The Streamer themselves will count as 1 live viewer.
  • On rare occasions, on the Streamer page, the viewers count will show a value of 0 even though there are current viewers. If this happens, the work around is to click the refresh button in the UI above the video player and verify that OBS is currently streaming.
