Is there an html link somewhere that will link directly to my board being played? (like tv but without tv)

I'm trying to incorporate my lichess game into my OBS (open broadcast software) stream via browser input. I'm inputting the normal link ( but of course all of the other website's features are showcased so im difficultly masking out those elements.

I'm wondering if there is a way to link solely to the board as it is being played (and perhaps other elements like the clock) in the same manner that in a lichess tournament, the top game's board is being shown in the upper right hand corner.

Sorry if this is poorly worded. Thanks y'all :^)

I don't think there is but there is a "zen mode" when you're in a game press 'z' on your keyboard and it should hide most of the stuff except for the board, the moves and the clock.

If you can't do it with a keyboard try clicking on your name in the top right corner of the page, a menu will scroll appear and the last option above the ping meter should be "zen mode".

If that's not enough feel free to DM me and I'll see what I can do.

EDIT: Ok I think I misunderstood the problem… You mean in broadcasts and studies?
There are links that link directly to a game but it shows the same thing… I don't think that would help :/
Erm imma dig into it and see if I can find a quick solution (Unlikely)

EDIT 2: Ok I have a semi-solution for you… You can use the "embed" url (eg: )

I made a shitty video to explain:

Not quite what I was looking for but thanks much for going through all the effort :^)

I don't think so. But why can't you just crop the input, either with crop/pad filter or by moving the sides of the box while holding down the Alt key?

ah! the alt-key solution is exactly what i'm looking for- thanks man!! :^)
