OBS Websocket

Let your commands interact with OBS

OBS Websocket

Glimboi can use OBS Websocket to talk to OBS with your commands. This requires OBS websocket to be installed. Simply download the executable file and run it.

Make sure you do not exceed version 5.0. It is untested with Glimboi.


Once installed you need to connect Glimboi to OBS. This is done on the integrations page. Make sure OBS Websocket is enabled. If you set a password you should add it to the bottom input. You must enter the correct ws URL.

ws:// is the protocol. This will be in every URL. is the IP of the device running OBS.

:4444 is the port on which OBS Websocket is running.

If Glimboi runs on the same PC that OBS is running on it is the default URL ws:// . If not you need to change the IP to match your stream PC. You may need to allow OBS websocket and Glimboi in your firewall settings.

OBS Websocket Actions

The below actions are used in commands. They allow Glimboi to talk to OBS.

Change Scene

Glimboi can switch to any scene in OBS. Variables are supported.

Change Visibility

Glimboi can hide or show any specific source. Variables are supported.


Glimboi can mute or unmute any specific source. Variables are supported.

Replay Buffer (clips)

Glimboi can trigger the replay buffer to start, stop, and save clips. Saving a clip requires a hotkey set for “Save Replay Buffer”. The buffer must also be active.

Note that attempting to clip when the hotkey isn’t set or when the replay buffer isn’t active can crash OBS. This is a bug with OBS websocket / OBS and has nothing to do with Glimboi. We suggest you leave the buffer on when you want to record something.

Start/Stop Stream/Recording

Glimboi can start and stop a stream or recording. You should limit any command that uses this action with the rank system to prevent someone from stopping your stream!


Glimboi can take a screenshot of the active scene in OBS. Saved to %appdata% => Glimboi => Screenshots
