Usage

A script for OBS Studio (https://obsproject.com/) to embed a current date and timestamp. No other softwares and plugins are needed. Just OBS Studio and the built-in Browser Source input.

這代碼是為了在OBS Studio中嵌入現在的日期和時間而寫的。而且不需要安裝其他軟件或插件即可使用,只需要OBS Studio和原生的Browser Source輸入。

For usage, please see this video:

You probably won't need it, but I forked it to change the time to UTC because I have the need for it. All credit goes to sam0737, thank you for providing this.

FYI, When I used this I had to disable Browser Source Hardware Acceleration in OBS Studio v22.0.2 64bit - Settings/Advanced/Sources, otherwise it didn't appear on screen. Thanks for this wonderful and easy solution!

Hi! I've been trying to do a local version of the this saved as a HTML file which you modify in an editor then load up as a local file in Browser source. I've forked this with the changes I've made, but for some reason border-radius isn't working. Any ideas?

Yes. The code does. Rawgit may not be useable. See @SJP176's comment above.

Hey is it just me or does this not work anymore? I can't style it at all.

EDIT: I see the clock in this format - 2021-10-04T22:24:30-04:00
EDIT2: Use the one linked by SJP176.

Rawgit is shutting down soon. Here is an alternative link: https://gistcdn.githack.com/sam0737/a0ee8ca253fc5c84b2aa2ac018f7b8ad/raw/94af10ef67d6c7e48295efaa43cdd2847d2fd884/clock.html

Working perfectly. Much thanks!

I ended up pasting the URL from SJP176 plut the old text formatting. Otherwise I get the YY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS-04:00 format.

Lol, before noticing these comments, I found a partial workaround: using OBS "browser" plugin "custom CSS" field to set the font size and color (e.g. body { background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5); margin: 0px 5px; overflow: hidden; font-size: 50px; color: lightgray }), although I was not able to change the time format that way (so it was still YYYY-MM-DD etc.).
Learning that just replacing "cdn.rawgit.com" with "gistcdn.githack.com" in the original URLs fixed them has been a relief! Thank you @SJP176 !

Wondering if something would be broken (as it looks like the URLs may refer to specific github commits?) in case @sam0737 updates the instruction page with the new URLs... [UPDATE: Probably not... the instructions are just in a comment. So, unless github prevents from editing older posts, he should be able to update the instructions without breaking anything at all!]

Rawgit URL is dead now, it's no longer accessible, so you have to use a different URL to get the clock.
