amazing how many people thought Streamlabs OBS was officially associated with the OBS project

Streamlabs OBS is garbage software, it is literally OBS but worse

I've only been using the streamlabs web tools for handling on-screen notifications and stuff, but honestly after how badly they've fucked up i'm probably gonna move to streamelements

unless someone wants to make a custom thing for me


if anyone can make a custom web app that displays things like twitch chat and whatever, hit me up

I shouldn't have to rely on these big public services for these kinda things in the first place

it's appauling that when I search for "OBS Chat Widget" I get hundreds of results for streamlabs

@Violet I don't know about building a special webapp, but would just _plopping in the Twitch chat_ and removing the background with CSS work? I bet that'd be feasible.

They have browser sources on non-Windows finally, if you're using something not-Windows.

@IceWolf probably, I'd need to figure out if it's possible to do css styling to it or something

@Violet Yep, the browser source's settings has a CSS textbox right there!

@Violet Or at least it used to, when we used OBS a while back. It's been a while since we streamed.

@IceWolf yeah it's there, i just have no idea how to use it to customize the chat itself

@Violet Ah! Browser devtools will help you there: if you open the chat in a browser too you can poke around with the inspector, and try to do things with say the page background color there.

@Violet (If you don't know CSS we'd be happy to help out with that as well!)

@IceWolf maybe some other day, i'm feeling kinda rough tonight

@Violet @snailerotica cc @compucat , havent the TASBot folks already done exactly this for embedding twitch chat?
