Can you please explain a bit more what does this support mean? What is stored in database?

It means you can centralise all client settings to one place. MySQL is used as backend instead of a local SQLite database, see application arguments for usage.

I run the 2.1.2CC under Flash Pro 2014. There was a problem with the compatibility with Flash 2015, because Adobe changed the interfaces. I am not sure, if that has been resolved, but I am very happy with Flash CC 2014. You can install the latest versions of all other tools (PS, AE etc.) without a problem.

I was thinking for quite some time, if I should go with a subscription based product, instead of owning it. But I must say, it was one of my better business decisions I made in the last years, because it runs very good and the upgrade process for new versions is very easy. Adobe does a good job with the CC collection. And instead of paying a lot, when you upgrade from version to version, you always pay a little and stay current all the time.

Hey guys, the client is awesome, but Blackmagic released new ATEM software. If you update your switch and try to connect to ATEM from the caspar client, it will crash. It will also continue to crash every time you try to load the client software. The only way to fix the crash is to disconnect the ATEM or the client computer, open client, remove the ATEM IP entry in settings then reconnect computers. If the setting remains, it will crash the client in startup.

I have two issues with this client:
-The "view help" menu item is grayed out. No help to be found anywhere. Is a help file included in this distro?

-Live view does not work. I connect to a localhost server 2.0.7
Port 9250 has been opened in firewall. In fact the same occurs when I disable the firewall alltogether.
When I try to connect livestream to the local server channel 1 fill, the server gives the following:

Hi Friends, can you show me how to use Mixer's Chroma Key option? I can't find any tutorials about this.
Thanks for helping me.

You need to activate Chroma keyer in the config first.

Hi Jesper, can you show me how to do that with casparcg client, e.g., a video tutorial?
I've completed my software that can chroma key for image and video. I'm just wanna compare with casparcg and develop a chroma key module for casparcg.

When I use the client, it doesn't remember the last folder opened, for instance my rundown folder.
Then I think I've found another bug.
I have a template with a multiline text field.
If I have af text with 4 words, that should be able to be on same row, that doesn't happend, unless I put a space after the last word?

It's probably more a problem how the template is made, than how the client send its data.

I had problems with Auto Play, if I'm playing a group with Auto Play, and reproduce anything out of it, as a .ft for example, the Auto Play stops working. I've noticed that there is no solution, and I think the best would be that the client had a timer with the value of the previous video, and that the end of that Timer video only then the next run. Left with LoadBG, waiting, if another command is executed on the client, this disables the normal operation of Auto Play. I apologize if it is not well understood, use Google Translate, since I am Uruguayan, and I understand little English.

It's a very bad idea to post in Spanish, as the forum-language is English and we usually delete everything we can not read. You could at least use Google translate.

To help you with your problem we need to see your casparcg.config.
