For a full breakdown of new features and improvements, see below:
Source widgets have been beefed up, starting with Facebook. The Facebook Live plugins have been improved to automatically connect to your live videos, eliminating the step of manually retrieving video ID’s after you’ve gone live.
If you’re signed in to XSplit using Facebook, all your Facebook widgets and outputs should now always be signed-in automatically as well. Stream directly through your feed or any of the pages you manage, and they will all be aggregated into fb.gg.
A new source widget, Facebook Live Reactions Animation, has also been made, and it’ll make your Facebook Live streams more interactive than ever as you can embed the stream of Reaction emojis that viewers send into your video.
The Output menu has been cleaned up on your top bar with the three basic Output functions occupying their own menu. You’ll see your streaming outputs under Broadcast, and Local Recording and Playout features like NDI occupying their own menus as well.
Additional visual cues were added to these menus so you can better tell at a glance what outputs are running under each category, as we know how precious each second is when you’re live.
Source List Box
Sources can now be only accessed from the source list box, and we’ve made it easier for users with multiple widgets for each service installed to find the right output as each service would have it’s own group in the source menu.
