Removing a package

If you want to remove a package with yarn remove, make sure to run yarn afterwards as we are using patch-package without postinstall-postinstall because of

Platform specifics for building and development



CMD or PowerShell is required as native binaries need to be compiled or fetched for Windows. WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) or WSL2 are not supported as they will try to compile those binaries for Ubuntu.


Windows Platform tools are required for building native binaries. You can install them in a shell opened as administrator with the following snippet:

npm install --global --production windows-build-tools

Note: This will take some time and you don't get much feedback of what is happening, so please wait until you get confirmation the installation process has finished otherwise painful Visual Studio things will need to be fixed!

'vue-cli-service' is not recognized

Please see issue 122 (vcync/modv-3/issues/122#issuecomment-640100114) on how to resolve this.


libndi is required for NDI sources and must be installed for modV to build. You can find that available to download here: Palakis/obs-ndi/releases

Last successful build was with libndi4_4.5.1-1_amd64.deb.

Other Linux flavours

Untested. NDI is provided by grandiose, our fork is here: vcync/grandiose This fork of grandiose has other libndi supported platforms, however even on Ubuntu we needed the above libndi package to be installed.

Let us know how you get on (good or bad) and we'll update the repo and docs accordingly.
