    Updated:  April 19, 2017

    This is our first XSplit Broadcaster release under the new PTR fast track program. You can read more about the new program here. XSplit Broadcaster 3.0 is a new major release and by first releasing it under the PTR track, you get the chance to try out the new features and fixes early, and we get a little time to polish and finish up the last pending features.

    Updated April 20, 2017: Fixed crash issue after adding video file when running on "CPU mode"

    You can read the full release notes or just have a look at some highlights below.

    PS: Presentation, broadcast channel settings, user settings continue to be shared between the stable installation and PTR, so before running the PTR then backup your existing presentation.

    Highlight of new features and improvements

    General

    • Preview mode support : Support for preview and live at the same time in mixer (Still in progress)

    • Dedicated CPU/GPU modes: Setting in Tools ->General-> Advanced that allows users to prefer loading CPU or GPU during mixing and broadcasting. In setups where a GPU intensive game runs on the same PC, CPU mode may result in better game performance (We are still testing these new modes, default is still the Legacy mode and you should probably stick to that until next update)

    • Added loop options for each video source and Video Playlist item (Hot request)

    • Media Slideshow: Added option for webm and custom timings (Hot request)

    • Improved Hotkey Manager (Keys without modifiers, mouse XButton1 & XButton2, and MIDI support) (Hot request - testing still in progress)

    • Added “New scene”, “Load scene”, “Save scene”, & “Duplicate scene" menu items

    • Added support for Source transitions on scene enter and exit (Finally done, we had this is backlog for far too long-:)

    • Optimized compatibility of Virtual Camera and added list of supported resolutions

    • Faster and less CPU intensive MJPEG decoding

    • Support for Alpha in NDI output

    • Optimized CPU usage for hardware devices

    Services

    • Twitch Chat (HTML5): Added chat icons, timestamps and default colors options

    • Beam FTL improvements

      • Updated to FTL SDK 0.9.4

      • Added support for stream recording

      • Improved speed testing on pre-stream

      • Auto ingest selection based on SDK auto ingest

    • Facebook live chat and comment viewer
