Open Broadcaster Closed Captioning Software [OBCCS]

Basically what this program does, is letting you or a friend display closed captions(subtitles) on your live stream. You can connect with multiple clients and update the text on screen, so you can use several devices around you in order to provide closed captioning for your stream.

It allows someone on another device to translate or to type on your screen. I plan on having support for twitch integration to make it easier to setup connections.

In addition future updates will feature things such as animations/animation blending and other modes for typing, such as Live Type.
