In order to provide some extra functionality to song requests, we've created a small app for Windows and MacOS. With this app you'll be able to show the current song in your streaming software (such as OBS) and use hotkeys for song requests.
Current Song Output
On Windows and MacOS, we output a file in the Nightbot folder within your Documents folder. Here are the default paths:
You can customize the output of this file from the Settings menu on the AutoDJ page.
We have added global hotkeys to make controlling song requests when streaming easier. These hotkeys make use of media keys, so if your keyboard does not support them you're not able to use them at this time.

Be aware that streaming copyrighted music content may result in negative consequences for your stream. Many music content producers (Monstercat, Ninety9Lives, etc.) are starting to offer licensing for their content to be played on YouTube/Twitch. We recommend setting up a channel playlist full of licensed/free music and then restricting requested songs to the channel playlist (this can be configured in the song request settings). This ensures you control the library of music that can be played on your stream and prevents viewers from causing you to break any laws by streaming copyrighted content.
