Third Party NDI® Applications - Troubleshooting Guide

Issue: Third Party Applications utilizing NDI® technology are not sending and/or receiving NDI® traffic



  • Confirm you are running the latest third party software/firmware on your transmitting/receiving device, as we frequently release updates to our NDI® libraries for companies utilizing NDI® technology


  • Confirm your receiving device is running the latest iteration of the NDI|HX® driver, which is located in the NDI® Tools Pack here: *Note, you will also need the NDI® Studio Monitor tool and NDI® Test Patterns later in this guide.


  • Ensure that you are operating your sending/receiving device as an Administrator or user that has been granted Administrator privileges. You can confirm your User level in the Control Panel at Control Panel\User Accounts\User Accounts under "Manage User Accounts"


  • Ensure that your User Account Control Settings are set to "Never Notify" in Control Panel at "Control Panel\User Accounts\User Accounts" on your sending/receiving devices.


  • Ensure Windows is not blocking the sending/receiving application. Right click on the application name -> select Properties -> In the General tab. If it is blocked, there will be a notification and a checkbox to unblock the application or simply a button that states “Unblock” 



  • If the source is identified in Studio Monitor, but not in your receiving platform, check the following:
    • If you are utilizing NewTek™ equipment, make sure you are running the latest software build for your device. You can locate software updates here:
