Is it possible to load a series of Stream Labels in sequence for a live banner? I have tried using an external batch file running in the background on a timer, but it errors out as it can't update the generated file TXT once OBS has a hold on to it (Windows shows an OPEN FILE handle which blocks changes).

This would not be possible to do at this time.

[h6]I'm having the same problem. I'm signed in through twitch and I've tried logging out, closing, running as admin, and logging back in to no avail. I've also tried refreshing the cache, re-adding the widget urls, and what was recommended by the "Streamlabels not updating or launching? Here's the fix" forum.[/h6]

@ClambtheLamb Have you already received any donations via your Streamlabs tipping page, so they show in My Donations?

If you have no donation received yet, then the label of top donator will be empty as there is no data to show. On the My Donations page you can temporarily add a donation manually so you can set up the labels if you want!
This also is the same for any other label, if there is no data yet to show, the label is empty and won't show anything as a source!
