Stream Overlay - tool to create overlay with an animated video background for streams

  • Quote

Post by VladTheJunior »

Hi, I made this application a long time ago, it is available on the official forum, but for numerous requests I publish it here. I will also publish 2 of my other apps for the same reason.

More details and Download link here: https://github.com/VladTheJunior/StreamOverlay

About The Project
This project is aimed at improving the quality of streamers' content. Overlay can be set before the start of events such as tournaments or showmatches, or during breaks. The advantages of this tool over manual configuration in OBS Studio are ease of installation and high quality overlay in just a minute. The original intent of the app was to make it easy to create an overlay for ESOC streamers, but now it's aimed at regular streamers as well.

Features
  • Animated video background.
  • Countdown timer.
  • Schedule textbox.
  • Map pool ticker.
  • Brand and event logos.
  • Auto updater.
  • Ability to move/show/hide elements in overlay window.
Hotkeys
  • Ctrl+Up : Adds 1 minute to countdown timer.
  • Ctrl+Down : Subtracts 1 minute from countdown timer.
  • ESC : Closes the overlay window and opens the settings window. Useful if you need to change some information or if the overlay is not used to reduce the load on the PC.
  • ALT+F4 : Completely closes the overlay application.
  • Ctrl+Space : Minimize overlay window.
  • Ctrl+1 : Show/hide Countdown element.
  • Ctrl+2 : Show/hide Schedule element.
  • Ctrl+3 : Show/hide MapPool element.
  • Ctrl+4 : Show/hide BrandLogo element.
  • Ctrl+5 : Show/hide EventLogo element.

I just would like to say - these overlays have been quite key in making our Ace of Spades Streams look quite professional. Huge thanks @VladTheJunior and to the casters leveraging them Josh, @antzishere , Jaxon, and @Nicius!
