Chessbase and Wordpress

I am running a wordpress blog. Is it possible to live stream games out of a current Chessbase GUI and publish it live on a wordpress blog page/post?

Any ideas?

I doubt that special plugin for Wordpress will ever be developed.
You have to do it manually, writing javascript.

There are dozen Javasript libraries for PGN-to-Web or FEN-to-Web representation.

You just feed PGN or FEN text variable and they draw everything.

To make it LIVE - you need to refresh this text variable and redraw board.

New variable content you can get by background Javascript request (called AJAX).

var p = fetch from

livedata.txt is your local file where you keep most current PGN or FEN data. It can be wrapped in JSON format as well.

I would recommend OBS. It's free. You can capture your desktop or whatever you want.

You can use your Youtube account to stream, then post a link to your page.
