My Stream Timer
My Stream Timer is an easy to use countdown and count-up timer for streamers. Multiple timers are available that write a file to disk to use with OBS, SLOBS, or your favorite streaming application. Have it auto start so it works with Stream Deck!
Download today on Windows or macOS:
Integrating into OBS/SLOBS
Open My Stream Timer and tap the copy icon to copy the location on disk where My Stream Timer saves output files.
Next, Open OBS/SLOBS and add a Text source. Check "Read from file" and click browse and navigate location that was copied to the clipboard. Select on of the text files for count down, up, or giveaway. That's it! When you start the countdown it will show up!
If you are on macOS when you set click "Browse" in OBS/SLOBS the file picker will come up. To browse to a folder use the following command on your keyboard: (CMD + SHIFT + G) and then paste the directory from My Stream Timer
Integrating into Stream Deck
You can integrate a Website command under System to launch My Stream Timer and start a countdown from a specific amount of time. You don't need to browse for a file location at all as you can input a protocol url:
- Count down from X minutes: mystreamtimer://countdown/?mins=6
- Count down to specific time (24 hour clock): mystreamtimer://countdown/?to=15:30
- Count down to top of the hour: mystreamtimer://countdown/?topofhour
Integrating into Deckboard (using an Extension App for Windows)
If you do not own a Stream Deck but use other apps to control your stream, Dara Oladapo created an extension app for Windows that he uses for Deckboard. You can check out the project here and web link here.
