Wheel Decide is an online program that gives you a wheel similar to Wheel of Fortune that you can edit and use for making decisions and viewer interactivity in streams and videos!
Recommended for anyone who wants to spice up their Videos/Live Streams
What You Need:
A web browser
Browser Source plugin for OBS
Make sure you have “Browser Source” available in OBS
This is really easy and simple to check for, once you open up OBS down at the bottom there will be your “Sources”. To check if you have the Browser Source plugin installed, go to add a new Source and if one of the options says “Browser Source” you are good to go and can skip to Step 2. If not, continue reading Step 1.
In order to install the Browser Source plugin you are going to need to do a fresh install. To start, go to your search bar and search “Control Panel” and then select “Uninstall a Program” and uninstall OBS.
If you don’t have it, download OBS Studio from https://obsproject.com/ and then follow the setup instructions making sure that “Browser Source” is selected during install. You should be good to go after this.
Setting up Wheel Decide
To start, go to http://wheeldecide.com/ and you’ll be greeted with a template that you can edit right below the wheel.
The above images show the basic wheel and also the options to change it. You have the options to add up to 100 different choices to be selected, change the title of the wheel, and also select the color scheme. After you get the wheel the way you want setup, click “Apply Changes” right below the Edit options.
Adding, and interacting with, the wheel in OBS
This next step is actually being able to set up and interact with the wheel. This is incredibly easy and not as difficult as it sounds.
So in the URL bar for your now edited wheel, it will have updated from what it originally was. Copy that link and head into OBS.
Go to your sources and select “Browser Source”. You can name this whatever you like just make sure you’ll recognize it. Then paste the URL into the URL bar in OBS (should default have the OBS website in it).
You’ll probably have to adjust the size of the window a bit to your preference and you can do that by increasing or lowering the numbers in “Height and Weight”. Just keep in mind it increases by Pixels so you may have to do quite a few to see a noticeable difference.
Once adjusted to how you like it, it’s time to interact with it! All you need to do is right click the source, and select “Interact” at the bottom of the drop down menu! This will open up a mini web browser of sorts that updates inside of OBS!
And Congratulations! You have successfully set up Wheel Decide inside of your OBS for your streams or videos!
