    XLights and the LOR pixel editor have an option to show video. I am unsure if Vixen has.


    Streaming live video would be harder.

    On the FalconChristmas site a year or so ago, I posted a picture of me using a webcam program I was playing with on the Pi that allowed this feature but I haven't refined it enough for release. It captured live video from a video input and displayed that on a FPP Pixel Overlay so it could be on a regular matrix, virtual matrix on HDMI, or on a "P10"LED panel matrix. I hope to work on it some more this year so it is usable for this season since a lot more people are using P10 panels this year.

    This is where DVI mapping with matrices works great because you can map your computer screen to the matrix and that means you can play live feeds easily. If I remember correctly, LOR, LSP and XLights require a pre recorded file for video to be used

    As of 2016.10 xlights can render video files directly. No need to create thousands of images.
