Ableste2 with Live 11 sending Video on external screen

Hi everybody! New to the forum and to Ablest 2. LOVE IT! Helps a LOT.

I have a question, when using Live 11 Standart with tracks AND Video, the video does not show on the external screen when using Ableset. Live window is inactive.

Any ideas?

Thank you,


Hey @Larspetermusic, welcome to the forum!

Unfortunately, this is a limitation of all editions of Live – as soon as the main window loses focus, the video window is hidden. Not sure why it does that.

A workaround for this might be using Videosync, which allows you to open a separate window that contains the video content of your Ableton session. The lite version costs €79 at this moment and should be enough for your use case.

I hope this helps! :slight_smile:

Thank you! I will try that.
