Send your lyrics to vMix

edited November 2020 in General Discussion

I needed a way to send my lyrics to vMix ( my live Show. But I don't want the "green screen way" to do that because it avoids me to use the output for a real use (only to be used for video mixing with a color Keying).

So I write a small piece of software that ask the Stage display API for the current slide text and send it to vMix on prepared text/title Input. The layout is done on vMix (as I get the lyrics in raw text) and the input could be used on the overlay layer you want.

If you find it useful, you can find it there:
That's just a software that you setup once then launch it and forget.
The development isn't perfect, but that makes the job done for my needs.


  • Hey. This sounds like exactly what I am looking for. Thank you for making it available.  However, I am just learning vmix and OpenLp and I am not a programmer so forgive my ignorance.  I couldn't find a place at GitHub to give any feedback so I'll do it here.

    I tried to setup as per your instructions and they seem very straight forward and clear but, after downloading and extracting the .zip file I couldn't find the .exe file to actually run lyricstovmix. 

    Thanks for any help you can give.
