Simulcasting via Livestream Studio can now be set up via Studio Web Control. It works similarly to setting up simulcasting within the Livestream Studio software.
Log in to Web Control and navigate to the lower left corner. Select the Stream tab. Choose one provider to start with; this example will use Livestream.
Log in to your account.
Configure your provider's settings. For example, choose your Livestream event and whether or not to notify your Livestream followers when you go live.
Click Advanced Settings to reveal further options below; in Livestream's case, using bonding or using this Studio as a backup stream. All providers will allow you to specify a network to stream through.
When you have finished configuring your settings for your first provider, select the + icon in the lower left corner to add another provider.
Choose another provider (this example uses Facebook).
Sign in to your account. This may open a new browser window. Once you are signed in, navigate back to Web Control.
The provider's icon will appear as a new bottom tab within the module. Clicking it will allow you to configure settings for that streaming destinations (e.g. where on Facebook you are streaming, audience, tag location, etc.)
Now you can give your stream a title and choose a streaming quality. Keep in mind that not all quality options are supported by all providers (e.g. Facebook does not currently support 1080p or higher).
To start streaming, click Go Live in the lower right corner of the Stream module.
Your stream will begin immediately and the Stream module will turn into a dashboard explaining your outgoing bitrates, frame rates, viewer counts, and any error messages or warnings regarding your stream.
When you are down streaming, click the red Streaming button in the lower right corner.
You stream will end immediately and a dialogue box will open with information regarding your stream and any action items required (e.g. post the video on demand to your event page).
