A lot of upgrades and improvements have been added to this since. Check out this blog post for more details. 

We here at SplitmediaLabs are excited to bring you cutting edge broadcast technology such as NewTek’s NDI™. However as with all new technology, there’s always a few kinks to work out. The release of XSplit Broadcaster and XSplit Gamecaster 2.8 adds beta support for NewTek’s NDI™ protocol and we’re excited for user feedback, however we just want to be sure to let you know of a few known issues at the point.

  • No audio: The current implementation of NDI™ does not send audio. We found some issues with audio buffering and freezing, so we’ve removed it for the time being. Don’t worry, we’ll add audio back in as soon as stability has improved.
  • Video Freezes: There is a known issue where video and XSplit Broadcaster can freeze over time.
  • Sizing Issues: There is a known issue where XSplit Broadcaster can freeze while re-sizing an NDI™ source on the stage.

If you encounter any other issues than the aforementioned above, please contact us at Rest assured that we are working hard to improve the NDI™ functionality as well feel this will create a world of possibilities for broadcasters or all sizes and types.
