Lyric Output for Live Streaming

August 31, 2017
We would like to have a way to output lyrics to put on our live streams.  It would be nice to have just the words and be able to chroma key them in on our streaming software.  It could be implemented as another display like the stage display, or our software could even take in just a web page as a source.  So, it could be as simple as giving me a url I could point to and it would just have the text of the slide on it with a transparent background.  Then I could overlay the text on the bottom of the stream and the words would change when the worship extreme operator changes to the next slide.  Or, maybe an API that we could hook into that would allow me to grab the text of the current slide and write my own html/css backend?

This can currently be done using the main output. Adding multiple outputs isn't possible at this time with Worship Extreme.

I'm doing this a different way, but it still requires two operators (volunteers). I have a second computer that uses the "Stage Display" with everything but the current verse removed--only the current verse shows, pulled down to the bottom of the screen. That luma-keys easily, and removing the green border is fairly easy either by cropping the image, or by adjusting the luma to keep only the white lettering. (Using a duplicate cue doesn't allow the same song to have a different template, so we either end up having to use powerpoint (which is why we bought WE in the first place) or we had to improvise somehow--the stage display was a natural option.
What I'd REALLY like, is a way for one WE computer to be "slaved" to another, so that when the front-of-house computer changes slides, the streaming computer changes too. What would be even nicer of course is a third output--always aligned left and at the bottom.
