What is Overlays?
A stream overlay is like a cool graphic that shows up on your live video. It can have stuff like your channel details, the chat box, notifications, and more. These overlays jazz up your stream, making it look better, and they also make it simpler for your viewers to chat with you and get involved.
Why Use YoloCast’s OverlayLab?
Streamlined Overlay Generation
YoloCast’s OverlayLab feature allows users to effortlessly use overlay templates or create their own Web URL overlays directly from their web browsers. Unlike the traditional approach of creating overlays on the encoder like YoloBox itself, the browser-based method offers a more user-friendly and convenient experience.
More Templates in the OverlayLab
When you access the OverlayLab, you’ll discover a diverse collection of templates tailored to various needs. From scoreboards for different sports to designs for names, titles, and even scrolling text, the library is a growing resource for enhancing your overlays.
Customizing and Adding Overlays to Your Collection
Upon finding a template in the Overlays Library, you can easily add it to your overlays. Customize it as needed, and with a simple click, make it available to load onto your encoders like YoloBox or your streaming software like OBS. The process ensures flexibility and ease in adapting overlays for your unique content.
Dynamic Overlay Updates
The power of YoloCast’s URL Overlays lies in its dynamic capabilities. Easily update overlay information in your browser, and witness the changes reflected in real-time on your YoloBox output. This functionality proves invaluable, especially in dynamic production environments.
Saving and Reusing Overlays
A notable feature is the ability to save all your created overlays in YoloCast. This ensures that every time you stream, you have quick access to a repository of lower thirds, scoreboards, and other overlays, streamlining your production process.
