Livestreaming services are available with Enterprise subscriptions.
You can create a livestream by going to the Livestream menu item and clicking + Add new.
This will trigger a four step process:
We support three types of livestreams:
Livestreams have metadata fields similar to videos. During creation, you need to specify the title, description and any tags you want to associate your livestream with.
You have three options to use for the stream source.
Step 3 is not applicable to simulated live
You have to decide which quality you want to have for the stream. This depends largely on the quality of the input signal.
You can also decide if you want to record your livestream. Recording is only available if you do an event of type go-live-now or a scheduled event. 24x7 events are not possible to record since they are too long. If you enable record you may also choose to auto replace the recording with the recorded video once the event has finished.
Another option is Digital Video Recording (DVR) which gives your viewers the ability to rewind and watch a special moment again all while the live stream is still ongoing.
You may select the start time and here is where you create the simulive playlist by adding videos.
For more information about the different use cases you can read our blog entry introducing our livestreaming.
