I am not sure, if I did the SplitCam stuff correct. What settings do you use for this?

Or does anybody have a better idea on how to capture from a Skype video call (without using VidiGo Tollbox or any scan rate converter)? I need to build a Caspar screen with a video window, where a Skype call is displayed (along with graphics and a background loop).

There is a "Custom Command" under "Tools" where you can manually write commands into the corresponding fields. For instance what you write into the "Play" field will be sent to the server, when you hit F2 (Play).
