About OpenLP

OpenLP is an open source worship presentation software that is designed to support the playback of multiple video files through VLC integration. Users can create service presentations with text, images, songs, Bible verses, and more, and control playback through native apps for Android and iOS.

With OpenLP, users can create and display custom worship presentations for any type of service. Bible's can be imported in multiple formats, with the ability to search by phrase or scripture reference. VLC integration enables the playing of almost any audio and video file format. Images can be imported into OpenLP, organized into folders, and turned into slideshows through the drag-and-drop interface. Integrations with PowerPoint and LibreOffice Impress also allow users to import and display external presentations.

OpenLP's remote apps for iOS and Android, and responsive interface for mobile browsers, allow users to access services from any touch-screen device to change slides or current presentations, and search for Bible verses, songs, images, and more. The stage view also provides users with a built-in stage monitor accessible through any web-enabled device.

OpenLP is everything that is great about open-source software. A well-developed software with a community that supports it even more. It was essential for our church to find something that worked very well for us. Over time, we were able to use most of all features that changed the game. Dynamically editing the setlist while on stage; adding, removing, skipping - all while being completely wireless makes it the best software we've used till date.

Pros

Cross-platform. This piece of software will run on anything. OpenLP runs on any platform, whether you're running Windows, iOS or Linux. You don't even need a full-sized computer to run it. Makes it all the more easier to spread out our points of failure, making it completely reliable.

Cons

Multi-language support is something that is still lacking. It does support multiple languages, but having it appear in two languages at the same time - when that arrives, it'll be a game-changer for sure.

I am very satisfied, I have recommended and trained several people to use this program, it is an all in one.

Pros

It is very easy to set up a service (with images, praises, etc.) and very intuitive to use.Also, it is very easy to add new praises.

Cons

Support for using videos as motion backgrounds is not very good. The current Mac OS version is not as well optimized as the Windows version.

Easy setup. Fast editing to get screens displayed. I can train people in 1 hour how to create a service, how to download new content and how to put music on the screen. Very Very easy to use and I have got a lot of churches looking at it to save money.

Pros

It is easy to use for almost anybody with basic computer skills. If you have a limited staff, then I would highly recommed this. I download media from youtube and content is on the screen in less than five minutes. I can create an entire service and easily edit what I want to put on the screen. there is some lag time between what you add to the service and getting it on the screen. but overall, it does a decent job for small churches. I am a computer consultant for small churches and they all like it because the bible is easy to pull up. You click the projector and it goes right to screen. I have two TV's and one project on a hp computer and we are happy.

Cons

The content sometimes laggs behind when you put it on the screen. Also the songs dont keep up with my musicians. I have to constantly move the needle. Needs more backgrounds so you dont have to do much creating.

Program IS NOT for nontechnical persons.

Reviewed on 2020/06/14

Pros

It works for a small fellowship that does not have funds for a better updated modern program. Works well with CCLI - Song Select. I was using LibreOffice PowerPoint - this is a great upgrade with ease of use when preparing for a service.

Cons

One needs to be tech-savvy to get everything to work, Not novices! There is NO tech support, The interface is not up to modern standards ease of use. I would like to be able to hand off to others when I am not available or have other duties I would like if others like my worship leader to make changes with ease. It takes a lot of effort to get format the slides to look good. Then once you get set up - changing locations/equipment it will not display the same.

Overall, our experience with the software has been positive. The ease of use during the service has been of immense help.

Pros

I like that it is easy for a user to use during the service. Once a service is done, nearly anyone with ten minutes training can use the software.

Cons

I dislike the lack of some features such as being able to run video in the software. We have to use separate software for that. Our other issue is the lack of information on how to do things with the software. The lack of tutorials on it probably keeps many churches away from using it.
