“When I was started streaming VR gameplay from social media, there was no guide on how to show off the biometrics coming in from my Apple watch. Now it is.”
As a streamer, you may looking to start up your PC VR game streams by counting biometric visual data (such as heart bit and calorie burn) for your audience to follow. You can quite easily push your metabolic data to your live viewers in on time if you have own iPhone (or iPad) with a Bluetooth-enabled fitness tracker. Got an idea to make a mobile app? If you are looking for Hire iOS developers, we are providing the best Fitness tracker apps solution for iPhone and iPad.
It’s not as complex as seems first, and it can potentially make a VR game stream more attractive-especially during showcasing a physically active game like Audica, Beat Saber or one of the many other titles we cover here at VR Fitness Insider. Are you curious about my process? Here’s what you need to get started:
Set Up Your Tracking App
For example, let’s say I’m using my polar H10 and recording my fitness consequences using the Polar Beat app. If I were going with a different tracker, such as my Apple Watch, I do go for Under Armour Record instead. On that note, both apps working identically once they’re up and running.
Let You’re Tracking App Speak to Apple Health
Commonly, your Apple Watch already does this. For other trackers, you need to set up this step Completely, navigate your apple health app with sources, and then fine your tracking app of choice. Then Switch on all available “WRITE DATA” toggles.
Install AirServer on Your PC
AirServer is a piece of software that lets you mirror your screen of the phone or tablets to a non-Apple device. There’re others of the same quality, but this is the one I still end up paying for and using. Once you activate the executable, you should find a hidden icon on the bottom right corner of your desktop designating that AirServer is ready to roll.
Cast Your Tracking App to AirServer
Navigate to the dashboard on your iOS device and select ‘Screen Mirroring’. As long as both your PC and your iOS device are on the same WiFi network, you should have the option to mirror from your device to your PC.
Add the AirServer Window to Your Stream Composition
You can do this in both well-liked broadcasting programs—OBS Studio and Streamlabs OBS. For either program, you’ll want to add a source called a ‘Window Capture’. From there, discover the AirServer Window and make sure that the Window Capture layer is designated to only explain that window.
Now next, drag the window to the top of the list so that it’s at the front position of the composition. Once you’ve added the window, navigate to Filters to apply color tweak and a crop clean.
Adjust both filters until the window looks how you’d like it to appear in the live stream.
Sorry to say, I don’t have an Android device with which to reproduce this method. However, what I’ve detailed in this guide will help out VR streamers who own iPhones and other Apple devices. Any iOS user who’d like to front some technical metadata to prove that playing a VR game can, in fact, be careful exercise, is welcome to lean on this guide.
