I am attempting to join Zoom calls and I am being asked to launch Vegas Streaming for apparently to have my laptop camera to work. I would like not to use this, how do I turn this off so I can use my laptop camera again? ty
Strange, I recently had Vegas Streaming installed, thinking that maybe I will try it out one day. But now when I tried a YT livestream it says another app is using my camera and I can't go live directly. I opened Vegas Streaming and I can't find anything about preferences, etc. in regards to camera use.
(EDIT: so I just uninstalled it, disabled whatever camera apps in my Windows 10 security and now it works.)
Ok, so I have a resolve. It turns out when calling HP Support for the laptop, they pointed out that their is a super tiny switch about the size of a pinhead on the side of the laptop that manually turns the laptop camera on and off. Issue solved. Ty to those who jumped in to help! :)
This is an interesting topic. I had the same Ronald-Maxwell experience, literally.
So now VEGAS stream is uninstalled where I would have preferred to have it there available, ready for me to switch it on when required. Plus, one wonders what usage cases could be had as complement of Zoom/Meet? What sources of effectively applied uses of VEGAS stream do exist? What users experiences are there to see? Maybe I should have done my research on this before asking, however will welcome advice on what next? alternatives forum users may point in this. Thanks
@Reyfox, I'm sure that answer is yes. There's a few differences but, for my purposes, it is working well. I know they're still working on it - hopefully it won't be much longer before it's time for public release.
While I have Vividcast aka Vegas Stream, it seems to be EOL. It's been almost a year, and no news.
Ouch!! Didn't expect such awful news. Actually after waiting several years looking for the well-working version and interesting new features... I bought VEGAS 19 upgrade back at March 2022. Resulting in what I paid amounted for quite more than MAGIX revised upgrade price policies now require, in effect only a few months after my purchase (and missing VEGAS 20 release in between).
And now I find that my shinny VEGAS Stream software is not developed any more and apparently there is no one here that actually uses it! It was a relevant part of my decision to acquire the upgrade "so I could share work online and communicate for years to come". Not anymore. Dead dreams now. In this case led by my belief in MAGIX marketing communications at the time. I'd have to be more careful, uffs again, next time.
My consolation here is that VEGAS 19 has had extended service so I could continue having a stable and non-crashing NLE for years to come in ways better than what I was doing with previous version VEGAS version.
Accumulatively what has it costed me? Over $600, definitively just don't want to see a higher number here> Anyway always striving for the tool that would allow my ways/works in Video to grow within time (I mostly do Audio). I am tempted to conclude that I should place these expectations elsewhere first and then search for the right tools. But as some channels and platforms effectively do, some tools enable us or become rather stiff requirements to offer our services. Possibly not so much anymore, which are good news in my book.
@Cielspacing, there are plenty of people using VEGAS Stream and Vividcast. Just because the Vividcast product is being merged into Titler Live does not mean that it's dead. It means it's being combined with another product giving you even more functionality. VEGAS Stream was updated for VEGAS Pro 20 - and this was after the Vividcast announcement.

Thank you for the effort in explaining jetdv. Don't want to sound rough on you, who are beta testing the replacement software, and I should address these diatribes to Stream's Support if there is any. I have just fast checked NewBlueFx website if there is a reasonable upgrade path. Its search system just returns Vividcast with only the single page already cited above with the text "Last week we removed VividCast from our website and ceased all sales of the product, etc".
So no hope for such an upgrade path. A dead end road it seems. That combined new product is as far from me as it is for a newcomer; I'll have to acquire it altogether again in order to use it. In my case I buy my musical/video software with the long term on sight. Probably not much use for it today, but I want to learn and grow with it, like I would do with a hardware instrument. After this, very little if none incentive to re-install VEGAS stream, less knowing than streaming always means others or audiences waiting for all to function properly. Won't risk to have problems or endure the path of self solving every connection detail in this situation. Frankly I was expecting a totally different outcome to my first question above, calling for users to share links or hopefully commenting their experiences. Sometimes just a little shared aim may mean kilometers for someone at the receiving end. This is a starkly different environment I am suddenly and unexpectedly in.
Marketing schemes like this merge typically conflict with my usage. I tend to keep a distance with such companies, it usually gets worse within time. Their pricing and strategy decision teams focus into short term profiting and extracting revenue from their business relations. Their pay is usually tied to metrics like those so what else to expect. I may be too an idealist but where technical excellence, relevancy for segments of musical-video customers other than larger groupings), long term growth and doing beneficial business for all involved are nowadays? Some firms do pursue such goals. Many others subdue to the marketing strategies on vogue. I'd like to be wrong in this, but this situation with NewBlueFx looks too familiar these days.
That single NewBlueFX online remaining page mentioning vividcast (Stream for VEGAS) kept hammering my minutes, and with every repetition I see it closer, with more detail:
From the initial; "Where did VividCast go? March 23, 2022 Last week we removed VividCast from our website and ceased all sales of the product. Doing this allows us to focus our resources and efforts on Titler Live."
To the included text; "March 23, 2022" *I am eyeing carefully now
And then into the detail; "Last week" *even more focused eyeing
So I had to check. Went diving into my data files and effectively I bought my VEGAS 19 upgrade license that includes Stream precisely at 17th of march 2022. That is a date when the program was already phased out by its developer. With zero mention by MAGIX of that important detail. So NewBlueFX's "ceased all sales of the product". Here comes the detailed view again; "CEASED ALL SALES OF THE PRODUCT". It says that clearly.
However their product partner MAGIX didn't followed suit as my acquisition proves. They kept selling! Plus no official MAGIX announcement about Stream till now, that I know of. The issue is not so much that the product they are selling could be phased out product or unsupported versions, but the fact that such was not disclosed. I read all MAGIX published online and most of the user forum comments here and no related info, less an official disclosure. Would had I bought that upgrade id I knew then? The answer is no, but I did. I was misled by MAGIX am sorry to say, because I have grown to estimate this company within the years.
Here's what I have found out on the plans. The plan for Titler Live to replace VividCast is definitely this year with beta testing beginning as soon as next month. I cannot be more precise than that on the timing. VividCast people will be moved to Titler Live Present upon release. As for VEGAS Stream, there will be an upgrade path available to Titler Live Present once everything is settled.
All VEGAS Stream information will be sent to you by Magix. Magix will give you both the serial number and the download link needed. You will activate the product the same as any other NewBlue product, though. And, my understanding is that there will be an upgrade path from VEGAS Stream to Titler Live in the future as well.
