CasparCG ClipTool now with HTTP based HTML overlay

ClipTool is a simple tool (and we’re trying to keep as simple as possible) for que & play clips on CasparCG

The new feature enables you to link to a webpage or a static .html file, and use this as overlay.
So if you put in “” it will show that page as overlay (but as this is non transparent it will hide the video beneath)

If you need a file to test with you can save this as a .html file and reference to the file in settings:


   <title>Olzzon timer overlay</title>
   <script type="text/javascript">
      function display_c() {
         var refresh = 40; // Refresh rate in milli seconds
         mytime = setTimeout('display_ct()', refresh)

      function fmt(value) {
         return String(parseInt(value)).padStart(2, "0");
      function display_ct() {
         var x = new Date()
         var output = fmt(x.getHours()) + ':' + fmt(x.getMinutes()) + ':' + fmt(x.getSeconds()) + ':' + fmt(x.getMilliseconds() / 40)
         document.getElementById('ct').innerHTML = output;

<body onload=display_ct();>
   <div style="margin-bottom: 30vh;"></div>
      style="color: rgb(241, 255, 251); font-size: 800%; background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.37); margin-top: 200px; margin-left: 30vw;"
