Stream and record your games with a live scoreboard

Version 2.357.0.0

Version 2.357.0.0 (April 19, 2021)

  • Add network status to status bar.
  • Add descriptive text to some error messages that may occur while streaming.
  • Set default recording format back to standard MPEG-4. There are still too many issues with fragmented MPEG-4, especially the increased chance of audio/video desync, which doesn’t happen with standard MPEG-4.
  • Fix a crash that could happen when trying to start a live stream when not connected to a network.
  • Fix the eyedropper button in the color picker dialog (it would sometimes get stuck behind the logo image).
  • Prevent the game clock from stopping if Undo is pressed during stoppage time.
  • Add https:// prefix to SSC web link at the bottom of exported YouTube description text so YouTube makes it clickable.

Known Issues

  • Certain apps like Zoom and OBS can “steal” the camera from SimpleSportsCaster so be careful that you don’t launch other apps that might use your camera while you’re in the middle of a live stream or a recording. If this happens, your live stream will go black and your recording will stop.
  • On Windows versions prior to May 2020 (build 19041 aka 2004), pure black pixels in logo images may become transparent. To avoid this, either upgrade to the latest version of Windows or avoid using pure black in your team logos. For example, use #010101 instead.
  • The SVG support in Windows isn’t always perfect. If your SVG file doesn’t show up after you import it, then you might be able to get it to work by making a few simple edits to the SVG file in Notepad or another text editor. For example, look near the top of the file to see if the svg tag uses the width and height properties. If it does, then try removing them and see if the file imports successfully.
  • The scoreboard and game clock don’t redraw while SimpleSportsCaster is minimized. Game time still advances normally but it just doesn’t show on the screen until SimpleSportsCaster is restored from the minimized state.
