The NDI protocol provides a convenient way to transmit video over networks such as Wi-Fi or LAN without the need for traditional HDMI pr SDI cables. To utilize this protocol, simply run a capturing app on your gaming computer and send the video through the network using NDI. Then, on your streaming PC, add the NDI source to the PolypopLive Library panel to effortlessly capture your game.

Adding the NDI plugin to PolypopLive

  1. Click on the Plugins button located at the top of the UI.

  2. Select the “Sources” category from the menu.

  3. Locate the NDI plugin and click its “Install” button.

If the plugin is already installed it means you already have it in your app. You do not need to install it again.
