Using a .CSV Over HTTP

If you are hosting a .CSV file on a web server, you can use the data in Livestream Studio by selecting ‘.CSV over HTTP.’

If your file requires authentication in order access it, check ‘Basic Authentication’ and enter your credentials.

In the settings, input the URL where the .CSV file is located, then press ‘Enter’ on your keyboard. Your data will populate on the right with further settings becoming available on the left.

 

Important: Make sure there are no spaces between either field; only commas should separate each one.

 

CORRECT: Data 1,Name,http://cdn.livestream.com/resources/branding/livestream-logo.png

INCORRECT: Data 1, Name, http://cdn.livestream.com/resources/branding/livestream-logo.png

Set the amount of time in seconds that Livestream Studio should refresh and look for new data in your .CSV under ‘Auto advance data interval.’

If you want to make changes to your .CSV via Livestream Studio, uncheck ‘Read only.’ Otherwise, leave it checked.

Scroll down to tell Livestream Studio what your column separators are and the types of characters being used (typically auto-detected).

At the bottom are your Auto-Loop settings if you want Livestream Studio to rotate through your .CSV data.
