Bringing an iOS Camera Signal into Livestream Studio

Livestream Studio allows you to use your iOS device as a remote camera source. You will need a Livestream account in order to use this feature.

Download the Livestream iOS application. Connect your iOS device via Wi-Fi to the same network as your Livestream Studio system.

 

Open the Livestream iOS application and log into a Livestream account. 

Don't have a Livestream account? Tap Continue with Email, then Sign up. This will create a free account on Livestream and grant you access to the mobile app's features, including Studio Remote Camera. Keep in mind a free Livestream account does not allow you to go live to the Livestream platform unless you pay for a Livestream plan.

Tap the menu icon in the upper right, then tap the gear wheel. This will open the application settings.

 

Tap Studio Remote Camera and make sure Studio Remote Camera is enabled.

 

Then select the blue Livestream Studio Remote Camera bar.

If you have not added a remote camera as an input, go to Settings: Inputs. Click the + button to add a new input and select Remote Camera from the video input drop-down menu.

 

Open the Remote Cam tab. You will find a list of all remote camera devices currently connected to your network. Find your iOS device from the list of devices. Now you can use your iOS Device as a camera source in your Livestream Studio production.

If you click on the gear wheel next to your remote iOS source, you can change settings such as which camera is being used and at what resolution.

 

Troubleshooting

 

If you are not seeing any options on the list within the Remote Cam tabs, please check the following: 

  • Make sure the remote system is on the same network, connected to the same Router or Access Point as your Studio system.
    • If the system is on the same network but using a different access point, the Remote Camera will not properly connect. 
  • Check that the following ports are open if you use a firewall: 
    • UDP: 5353, 60936 - 61036
      TCP: 60936 - 61036
  • Check that Bonjour Service is started.
