Video & Screenshots

Eye candy


I'm hopefully better in programming than in video editing...but
  • here and here are videos showing Open Glider Network data, one shows a tow plane busy at work, the other soaring gliders;
  • here are some pretty old scenes from Dusseldorf, EDDL 05R Landings on 25-NOV-2018, 12:26 - 12:50, taken in X-Plane 10 on a MacBook, i.e. pretty limited hardware;
  • here is a short video of a take off seen from the External View Camera perspective.
  • BlueDuck created a quick video tutorial covering basic setup steps
By now there are quite some other videos available from people with a better rig. Just search Youtube for something like "X-Plane LiveTraffic".

LiveTraffic + XPMP2 Remote Client

Courtesy of @HellG, here is a fantastic video showing how LiveTraffic's planes are synchronized to 3 other networked computers using the XPMP2 Remote Client, and all that in a professional 4 x 4K dome projection setup!
