Where is BMDSwitcherAPI.dll?

PostMon Jul 15, 2019 2:36 pm

I'm just getting started on some switcher automation software, and I'm writing in C#.

I downloaded SDK v8.01 and found a couple of C# samples which look quite useful, but they won't compile because the reference to BMDSwitcherAPI can not be resolved.

The DLL is not included with the SDK. There is an IDL with the same name but that doesn't do me much good.

So the simple question is: where can I get this DLL?

Thanks.

Found it. I had to install the switcher software and the DLL came with that. The c# sample finally compiles and I'll give it a try.

Hi Mark,

The BMDSwitcherAPI type library is registered when the ATEM Switcher software is installed. Please download the 8.0.1 update from the Blackmagic support site: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/suppor ... -switchers

When installed you add to your VS C# project by right clicking project in Solution Explorer -> Add -> Reference... -> COM -> Type Libraries -> check "Blackmagic Switcher API Library"

Remember to add to your source:
Code: Select all
using BMDSwitcherAPI;
Regards
Cameron

I thought it might be something like that. :oops:

I did what you suggested and it' all good.

Thanks for the timely information.
