Build From Source
Alternatively you can also build
obs-scene-switcher from source. Make sure you
have a working Go environment (Go 1.12 or higher is required). See the
To build obs-scene-switcher, simply run:
go get github.com/muesli/obs-scene-switcher
Edit scenes.toml and define which scenes you want to be connected to which windows, e.g.:
[[scenes]] scene_name = "IDE" window_class = "code-oss" [[scenes]] scene_name = "Terminal" window_name = "Konsole" [[scenes]] scene_name = "Browser" window_class = "Chromium" [[away_scenes]] scene_name = "Be Right Back"
In plain english, this means that whenever you focus your
VS Code window, OBS
will be asked to switch to the scene called
IDE. If you focus your
window it switches to the scene
Terminal, and so on.
away_scenes define scenes which, when currently active, temporarily stop
automatic scene switching. This is useful for keeping special scenes active,
like a "Be Right Back" mode you only want to manually disable again.
obs-scene-switcher -config scenes.toml
