Using a .CSV Over HTTP

If you are hosting a .CSV file on a web server, you can use graphics overlays in Livestream Studio to display data from it.

In a GFX module, open the Create Custom Graphic menu and select .CSV over HTTP.

If your file requires authentication in order access it, check Basic Authentication and enter your credentials.

In the settings, input the URL where the .CSV file is located, then the press Enter or Return key on your keyboard. Your data will populate on the right with further settings becoming available on the left.

 

Make sure there are no spaces between either field; only commas should separate each value.

 

CORRECT: Data 1,Name,http://cdn.livestream.com/resources/branding/livestream-logo.png

INCORRECT: Data 1, Name, http://cdn.livestream.com/resources/branding/livestream-logo.png

Scroll down on the left side of the module to configure additional settings. Set the amount of time in seconds that Livestream Studio should refresh and look for new data in your .CSV under Auto advance data interval.

If the first row actually contains the titles of each field, you can check Use first row as column titles to move them up to the title field.

 

If you want to make changes to your .CSV content via Livestream Studio, uncheck Read only. Otherwise, leave it checked.

Scroll down to tell Livestream Studio what your column separators are and the types of characters being used (typically auto-detected).

At the bottom are your Auto-Loop settings if you want Livestream Studio to rotate through your .CSV data; these settings include how often the displayed row changes, what direction it loops in, and its starting point.

To design the graphic, click the paint brush icon to enter the GFX Designer.

Select the CSV layer from the dropdown in the lower left corner and design your graphic as desired.

You can now control the graphics overlay by using PRV, PUSH, and PULL as desired.
