How to bind PTT to caps-lock (or any other key)

by Haghqt » Sun May 27, 2012 8:14 pm

This is a quick work around, and not the best, but it works until XSplit adds the option to bind anything to PTT.

The method I used was to rebind my caps-lock button so it instead presses a button that works for XSplit. I changed caps-lock so it presses F8 and bound that as PTT in XSplit.

You can rebind any key with a program called SharpKeys that you can download here:

Obviously this makes my caps-lock not work as a caps-lock, but personally I never use it for that reason anyway.

Hope this is to any help for anyone, and sorry for the short "guide".

Can you explain what ptt means in this context?

PTT stands for Push-to-talk, a feature which XSplit has implemented but unfortunately very poorly, as a result forcing users to utilise workarounds. BarrowDev has also created a program (which uses Autohotkey) that is also an elegant solution: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=9326
