Very Quick CasparCG Playout


Very quick way to get a CasparCG going.

Step 1: Download

Download the server and client from http://www.casparcg.com/download

Step 2: Unzip

Unzip them both as the same location

Step 3: Start the server


Launch the CasparCG_Server.exe inside the Server folder. You should get 2 windows. "Screen consumer" which is your default output and "CasparCG Frontend" which is the interface. Accept the normal Windows Firewall alerts and questions.



Step 4: Start the client

Launch the "CasparCG Client.exe" in the Client folder. You should get 1 window. Again accept any Windows Firewall alerts and questions.

Step 5: Add a source

Using the TWIT.TV live stream, we are able to very quickly add our first source. In the main area of the client, right click and drill down until Video. Select this option.

Step 6: Set the source

Make sure it is selected, then on the right under "Inspector" set the server to "Local CasparCG" and the Target to http://bglive-a.bitgravity.com/twit/live/low ( or http://bglive-a.bitgravity.com/twit/live/high )

Step 7: Hit play

Press F2 and you should see the Twit Live stream on your "Screen consumer" screen.
