How to Connect Plug-ins

1. Click the Settings and other information icon -> Plug-ins.

2. After the Plug-in Manager starts, use the toggle at the top of the screen to enable the plug-in function.

The port number must be the same for nizima LIVE and the plug-in to communicate.
If the configured port number is not available, the port is automatically changed to one that is available.

3. Once the plug-in function is enabled and the plug-in is connected, the plug-in will be added to the Plug-in Manager.

Clicking ∨ on the right side of the screen opens a panel that displays the details of the plug-in.
If you wish to remove a plug-in, you can delete its registration by clicking the Remove button.

4. Activate the plug-in with the toggle on the left side of the screen.

The first time you perform this operation, you will see a pop-up window as shown in the figure. Confirm that the plug-in is the one you intended to use, and then activate it.

When the plug-in is activated, the toggle turns green and the plug-in function is available.
For plug-ins that can be started from nizima LIVE, the display is added as shown in the figure.

  • When the plug-in is closed, the toggle turns yellow.
  • When the plug-in is connected again, the toggle will return to green and the plug-in will be available immediately.

If the toggle is turned off, the plug-in will be disabled and the function will not be available.

Starting the Plug-in from nizima LIVE

The display is different for plug-ins that can be started from this software (top) and those that cannot (bottom).
For plug-ins that can be started from this software, the left side shows the path to the plug-in, and the right side shows some additional functions.

1. With the plug-in unconnected, press Start to activate the plug-in.

Click Open Folder to open the parent folder of the plug-in.

If you select the Auto start checkbox, the plug-in will start automatically when nizima LIVE starts or when the plug-in function is enabled.


If a plug-in is changed, such as by being moved or updated, the Start button will be disabled. In this situation, the plug-in will not be able to start and will not start automatically.
Reconnect the plug-in manually to enable it to once more be started from nizima LIVE.
If you still cannot use the plug-in, delete the registration with the Delete button and try connecting the plug-in again.
