In this tutorial, we'll send and receive multiple streams of Video from and to MXWendler using NDI. This tutorial needs MXWendler Version 6 and above.

Settings in MXWendler for the Sender
To be able to use MXWendler as an NDI source:
1. Go to streaming settings and activate Start Virtual Capture and Feedback.

Settings → Media-Clips,Live,Virtual → Streaming (A)

2. From the drop-down list, select and add which source of video should be streamed out. You can also type the source you wish to stream out: (B)

e.g for the video on the fourth Layer of the Track 2, write /mxw/track/2/layer/4

3. Make sure in front of the selected and added widgets the NDI box is selected. (C)
4. Delete the unwanted NDI streams by clickin on the X. (D)
5. Restart MXWendler.
In theory, you can stream more than 60 video sources out from MXWendler. These streams can be received through NDI Tools, by any other PC which is on the same Ethernet network. You can monitor these streamed outputs via the Studio Monitor application which is included in the NDI Tools package.
