I for one would love to see EasyWorship and Companion integrated. We are working to get our board and cameras setup to be managed via a combination of Stream Desk (reg) and a copy on an iPad. The complicated piece is tying Easy Worship in to that workflow.
Thanks for starting this!
This is an absolute necessity!
I am building a set of automations for my church based on the COmpanion/Bitfocus / streamdeck platform and if we cant get easyworship to communicate we may have to go to ProPresenter
it isnt that hard and will make the world of difference for us to stay in a familiar eco system
We have achieved remote control of Easyworship in Bitfocus Companion by using VICREO listener. (https://www.vicreo.eu/hotkey/) It is basically a listener that allows you to send keystrokes to the machine running EasyWorship. You can then configure buttons on the streamdeck to send whatever keystrokes you have in your EasyWorship mapping. It gets a but clumsy for song changing, but prev/next and "V1" "V2" "C" etc. are all possible.
We are working on the Companion support at this time. It should be available in the coming weeks.
Thanks @Dan Willard - this will be AWESOME to put into production!!!
@Dan Willard: I'd be willing to beta test, if you need someone. I have a standard (15-key) StreamDeck and access to a couple of machines of various capabilities running EasyWorship 7.
Thanks! We have run into a minor setback with the developer working on this, but now have someone else working on it. I will post here when we have something available.
Just wanted to update everyone in this thread that we do have a Companion plugin available now. You can search in Companion for EasyWorship and add it.
Hopefully, this helps all of you using Companion!
