YoloBox OG - Firmware Update v.3.8.1

What’s New in YoloBox v3.8.1 – auto-switch, reuse project, new graphic overlays and more

Many of the recent new features YoloBox Pro (v1.5.0, v1.6.0, v1.7.0 and v1.8.0) are now available for the OG YoloBox v3.8.1.

Auto-Switching

This feature is especially useful if you are running production by yourself, or if you want to have continuous camera switching.

It allows you to automatically rotate between up to 6 video sources, including:

  • Camera angles (HDMI 1, HDMI 2, USB-A)
  • SD Card (videos & PDF)
  • Multi-Views (PIP, Side by Side, Split View, News Layout, Triple)
  • Live Stream (as video source)

For example, if you choose sequential auto-switching with video source order of 1, 2, 3… and source 4 as your Main Source … then the auto-switching order becomes 1, 4, 2, 4, 3, 4 and repeats if the “Loop” feature is enabled.

Simply preset video sources, switching order and main video source, and YoloBox then can automatically switch for you. Perfect for one-man band multi-cam live productions.

Reuse Project

As the name suggests, this feature allows you to duplicate a live stream event for daily, weekly or monthly events.

You‘ve everything preserved in this clone live streams, including the resolution, frame rate, bitrate, destinations selected, streaming mode and all the graphic overlays, and more.

(Please note, previously loaded and customised graphic overlays will be cleared after the update.)

More Graphic Overlays

Two new graphic overlay types were added in this version — titles overlays and social overlays.

We have 4 built-in overlay templates for “Titles” and there’re a lot of new styling options like Corner Radius, Horizontal Padding, Vertical Padding, Dimming color, Dimming Level, Orientation, and more. You can use the default social overlay template to create overlays for different platforms.

Fade-To-Black video transition

Once the “Fade To Black” is enabled, the program will fade to black (no audio/video). To “Fade from black”, simply tap on the video source or disable the “fade to black” button. 

Additional Multi-View Templates

2 new multi-views are added in this version — News Layout and Triple. Now you have a total of 5 multi-views for different scenarios.

More shapes for the sub-screen of Picture in Picture

2 new shapes are supported for the sub-screen of Picture in Picture. You can now set a sub-screen as a rectangle, rhombus, or circle as you prefer. 

Automatically hide your overlays with pre-set duration

The graphic overlays will automatically hide with a pre-set duration. Simply choose a graphic overlay, scroll to the button of the “Setting” page, enable “Auto-Hide” and set a duration time for the overlay. 

Please note, currently auto-hide is only for image overlays and lower-thirds.

  • Animated GIF overlay
  • Superchat overlay
  • SD Card video playback timing
  • You can now delete the scoreboard team logo
  • Transparency adjustment for countdown timer overlay
