How to send data to XSplit Broadcaster?

There are several ways how to send data from Scoreboard OCR to XSplit Broadcaster:

  1. Using Multiple TXT Files
  2. Using Browser Window

1. Using Multiple TXT Files

  1. In Scoreboard OCR choose “Multiple TXT files”
  2. Add fields. Based on the fields defined in Scoreboard OCR this will create and regularly update multiple TXT files each containing value of the field. For example, “clock.txt”, “score_a.txt”, “score_b.txt” each will contain their respective values.
  3. In XSplit Broadcaster choose Add Text → Use Custom Scripts → Edit Script → Template → Load Text From Local file → in File Path choose the TXT file. If you want to read data 10x a second, do the following:
    1. Go to Script tab
    2. Copy the script to a notepad and change the update interval value from 1000 to 100
    3. Alternatively you can download the modified script here: xsplit_updateinterval_100ms.txt
    4. Choose Template → Blank Template
    5. Paste the modified script in Script panel and click “Update Text”
    6. XSplit Broadcaster will now read data 10x a second
  4. Repeat previous step for each field (clock, score_a, score_b, etc)

2. Using Browser Window

If your graphics engine by default does not support reading data from sources at least 10x a second (which is crucial for some sports such as basketball), most probably you can use an alternative approach - add scoreboard data using a Browser Window.
