  • Do you have any tips on the orphaned inputs that remain within vMix after they have already played? For example I was doing some testing and setup looping, after the end of each loop the final item in the list remained as an input within vMix and did not close out as all the other inputs did during the loop playback.

  • Used .mkv file; Its showing:
    Error playing ! try renaming or converting original file

    vMix Originally supports almost all file formats,
    Then why is this limitation in vTask.

    • like i said it works with mkv how ever if theres a break in your mkv stream it will tell you that error playing
      also have you rename the file as it said?
      have you downloaded the update 4?

  • Hello, I have several situations to comment, I am using the trial version vtask 2.1.20
    The initiative of this tool for vMix is ​​very good, I said it since the project started with vmix task, congratulate you for this great work.
    I hope the following ones I am going to mention help improve vTask.

    Used equipment:
    Windows 10 Pro x64
    Core i7
    RAM 16gb
    Video Nvidia GTX 970 – 4gb

    1.- In the sale the number of version that it shows is 2.1.10 (left corner of the software), minimum correction, it is only informative.

    you are using a wrong version because that has been corrected in vTask 2.1.20 update 2,
    we are now on update 4 for the same version and we emailed every one to re-download

    Now I will comment on my experience with the operation of vTask.
    1.- I have made a small programming with the following sequence in NDI mode:

    – IN4 overlay (logo channel)
    – vtask cg function
    – video1
    – video2
    – overlay (All off)
    – program: -Video
    – IN4 overlay (commercial logo)
    – video
    – video
    – overlay (All off)
    – video
    – IN4 overlay (logo channel)
    – vtask cg function
    – video3

    1.- Do not start the reproduction with click on the star button, I have to do it by double clicking on the first video that I want you to play.
    2.- Delay in playing the program item, approximately 2 to 3 seconds
    3.- Always After playing the program item (according to sequence) the playback does not continue, the vtask jams and collapses, a jamming noise is heard.
    4.- The reproduction of the videos is not fluid, it has minipases.
    5.- Sometimes the play mark (Playing) jumps to another video that has not yet been played.

    Could you please tell me what the problem is.

    You might be doing something wrong, have you watch all the tutorials we added few days ago
    you can always ask for assistance in team viewer before jumping to conclusion

    1.- By default, mute the previous audio when you start vtask
    2.- Add a blocking button that prevents closing, editing or reprogramming of vtask (padlock)
    3.- Add a security message before closing vtask (now it closes without saving project or asking if I’m sure of the action)
    4.- Add trim window that allows you to divide long time files (movies) into desired parts, (Ex: Divide into: 5 parts or X parts, etc.) and automatically place the large file in the list scheduler in the parts created.
    5.- Improve the preview window to cut files, it is too difficult to perform the task of trimming the parts, finer the movement of the playback scroll bar.
    6.- Add button to restart playback of the current file in air.
    7.- Add button pause in reproduction of the current file in air.
    8.- Add playtime bar in the air window
    9.- Add in the preview window spaces to place in numbers the in and out time we have to cut the video.
    10.- Adapt so that when a GC vtask function is added the name of the file is not too long or extensive (TruecgTitle xaml, 3000 .. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)
    11.- Adapt so that duplicating program items does not create extra long names (dup-2, dup_2_4 .. xxxxxx)

    Kindly move this to Wish-list comments

      • Still not working.
        First try it says “invalid product key” next try say “This device is already in use”

        ***I’m going to Philly in the next hour and I was supposed to set up a streaming playlist before I leave. This is really troubling, I’ve tried dozens of times. Its still not working unfortunately!

  • Just some observations that I hope will help with further improvements to vTask.

    vTask 2.1.21 observations
    Appreciate the updating of the version numbers so there is less confusion, very important to good success

    NDI Mode
    Loop does not work
    Videos (mp4) have audio issues with dropouts during playback and stuttering at the end of the file.

    API Mode
    Inputs do not close in vMix, I have 8 bumpers ( total of 1 min 26 sec run time) I use for testing and when the list has completed I have 7 inputs remaining open with content loaded when I use fade transitions between the files. Without the transitions I only see 4 inputs remaining open. I have observed that the previous input closes at between 3-7 seconds of the currently playing video depending on whether there is a transition or not. Without the transition it is around the 3 sec mark when the previous input closes. Some of the test videos never close out but most do after removing the transitions. Also noticed that if the video is shorter than about 10 secs there are issues with inputs closing out properly.

    Note on API mode:
    Loop works fine
    No audio issues with the same video files

  • Out of desperation, I had to reset my computer as a matter of due diligence. From a fresh Windows 10 I installed Vmix, K-lite, Vtask and VLC.

    I am still getting error “This device is already in use”

    Why should a simple issue of license hold me hostage for so long? I have put in protracted hours just to resolve this. Why cant this issue be resolved once and for all? When I bought this application it worked quite well and I had no complains other than this ridiculous move that has put my business on a ‘stumble’ to the point that I have to cue streams manually.

    This incident to me doesnt augur well for the future of Vtask. 10 days just to fix a license?
    With a due respect if this issue is not going to be resolved I would like to know so I can move on.

  • Getting error that I have zero licenses left but I have only used the key once during my testing, please update my license status so I can continue to test and use vTask

  • I’ve been doing a lot of proof of vTask 2.1.23 and the problem with the function to remove inputs in vmix after playback using API isn’t fixed yet. First: The problem has reduced but it persist in a random manner. Now the clips try to left as a loop when vtask in vmix try to close the media clips and this operation generate a behavior like a double frame cuts showing jumping between clip cuts. May be a pre-roll problem with the timecode sync between the application and clips. Sometimes the media clip hasn’t end when the next clip input and cut the previous.

  • In vtask 2.1.23 still present the issue that vtask are not closing the played clip in VMix.
    There are other issue that is a de-sync with the clip currently playing and the next clip in the list, that makes the current playing clip try to do a loop playback when reach the end point, and when the next clip begins to playback it cuts the last clip abruptly. I’ll send you videos of this issue.

  • Hi friend!
    I have a problem.
    In vTask plays clips, but they remain in vMix as sources. Within a few hours, more than a hundred sources accumulate in vMix. The computer starts to work slowly. Why after playing clips are not deleted from vMix?
    (vTask v.2.1.23, vMix v.

  • Hi I need help! I have problem mp4 file. Error playing. Rename or encoding file 10 This is happening from the start! At the same time, vmix is reproduced normally and, on the vtask preview, the file is played but the picture is stretched. The file itself is a 4: 3 format. Program updated codecs too. What else can you do? Thought to get the program but with such problems it will not work

  • Hi, I am new to VMIX and to VTASK and before I purcahse a license for either software, will VTASK work with all versions of VMIX? I am looking to make a video server to replace a Nexus macchine and I would like to purchase the cheapest version of VMIX but need to know if it will work with VTASK considering that a lot of the features are disabled.



  • I have a project of a Music Videos Channel, how can I set the CGFunction to put the Title in one of the rows and the Artist in the other row?

    Thanks for your help.

  • Hello Testers,
    Download vTask 2.1.23 Testing 1
    Kindly backup your vTask.exe file before replacing
    unzip the file and replace in vTask installation folder.
    1. More accurate clip close in API mode, especially when using Loop.
    2. Output window now shows video in API mode
    3. Licence no longer says backdated

    Note that this is a progressive update and a lot have been done but will be releasing them day by day until final release in two weeks.

    • Hi Eric, I found this bugs.

      1-) sometimes the clip doesn’t close in Api, the problem continues less than before.
      2-) Sometimes with .mov H264 Files the API module close the current clip and opens the next clip in a late way and the clip that is in playback try to repeat while the next clip opens. This looks like a bad cut between the two clips. Its seems like the clip skates seemly and make a bad cut to the next clip.
      3-) In the save mode when I save a playlist that I created previously, Vtask don’t do the save on and to save well must be use the -save as- command.
      4-) The NDI mode still handle and render the clips in RGBA color mode making a slow playback, to play smoothly you must the NDI render in UYUV mode to play smooth.

      Positive things:
      The Playback output window in API Mode.

      Things to Add:

      1-) Support to .MXF Files Import.
      2-) More friendly edit window to slide the in point and out point or editing basic functions like a preview window in a video edit software.

      I spect to make me understand. If you need more explanation, don’t dude to contact me.
