SimConnect VideoStream with overlay?

Postby lequinne » Tue Oct 30, 2018 8:44 pm

Hey there, a question about the streaming interface supported by SimConnect_BeginVideoStream(). I got it working fine, I can create and control two aircraft carrier PLATS/ILARTS cameras using the PDK, and view the streams in VLC. When I view them in sim, I can also overlay the appropriate text using a scaleform overlay on the camera. That works fine as well, but unfortunately the overlay is not being transmitted as part of the video stream. Is there a way around this? Am I doing something in the wrong order? I would like to get the whole window including the overlay, as that would immensely simplify the work involved on the receiving/recording end...

thanks so much,
