Good Evening,

Strange request, I am doing a Gig in a couple of weeks and the persons brother is abroad, We want to call him on Skype and link it in to the VDJ system and show on the Screens I use.

Firstly is this possible
Secondly, How do I do this?

Thanks in advance for your help

I have an external Webcam I currently use to show the dancefloor on the screens and will have a good wifi connection at the venue.

Regards

Please do not place this on FB as a suprise for the birthday boy, thanks.

I would probably use a second computer for the call. You would need a capture card to pipe the video into the camera plugin, or just use a switch to swap the VDJ video feed for the Skype feed.
For the audio, if your using an external mixer, just mix in another channel. If not, then I think you can use the advance sound to record on the line in for VDJ. Put the output of the Skype PC into the line in on VDJ, and use the record/line in on a deck to mix in. I won't be able to test the audio setup until tomorrow, so this is al theory.
