EW7: Powerpoint does not work through NDI after black screen
Today in the service i found a bug/error which I could reproduce:
- In EW7 the Output is set to NDI
- In the schedule I have a simple powerpoint with 6 slides
- Before I select the powerpoint, I set the screen to black (Ctrl-B)
- Then I double click on the powerpoint and the first slide is selected.
- At the right time in the service I end Black screen with Ctrl-B so that the Powerpoint is shown
- The first slide of the Powerpoint is shown in The Live view in EW7 and on NDI
- Now the error begins: When i select the next Powerpoint Slide it shows in Live View but in NDI the first slide stays on: NDI does not refresh when i change the slide in EW7.
What build number of EW are you running? This should be fixed in the newest build. 126.96.36.199
Hi Dan, I am running the latest version 188.8.131.52. Here is the funning thing. I'm running a trial version of the same build on my home PC and it works fine. I do have a newer video card for the church PC, to assist with stream encoding not to try and resolve this issue. If that does help I'll reply here that it did. For reference, the current video card in the church PC is a AMD HD 5700 and will be moving to a GTX 950.
ok, yeah, let us know if the video card fixes the issue.
Can anyone give some feedback on the error i found?
Changing out the graphics card did not help. It will display presentations built in EasyWorship but not powerpoint presentations. I only shows a black screen
Try following the steps in the article from the link below to set the video card use for EW and PPT and see if that does anything.
Already saw that document. It only applies to computers with switchable graphics. This computer does not.

i met same problem.
in my chruch computer, using gpu gt730, sending ppt through ndi alternate screen show blank in obs
but in my home computer, using gpu gtx950, work fine
so my solution is install ndi application, and turn on ndi screen capture in easyworship computer
and the obs computer capture 2nd monitor / live screen of the easyworship computer.
also i notice that if the computer cannot sending ppt through ndi alternate output
ndi screen capture hx also will now working, because hx using hardware decoder, but the non hx using software decoder
This is not a bug. Your video card the GT 730 is not powerful enough. To use the NDI you need to really have a video card that is in the recommend not the minimum.
gt730 in easyworship work fine with song, and play video 4k, sending to alternate ouput 1080p ndi.
and for powerpoint work fine if using ndi screen capture.
tested and already running regullary in my church.
