Clamp - Dynamic stream captions on live streams


I am pleased to announce the initial release of Clamp, the latest tool in my

Clamp is based on Transcoder AddOn and currently capable of keeping an eye on a single text file and process any new instructions added in this file during streaming. The caption instructions need to be specified in JSON format, e.g.

# An example caption source file for Clamp
{start: "2015.01.05 21:13:45.002", duration: 15, text: "Hello Clamp!", position: {x: 10, y: 50}, style: {font:"Verdana",size:50,style:"bold",color: "yellow"}}

On my roadmap I have many features to add, this is the initial announcement, which I will keep updated going forward.
