- Upload an event Thumbnail.
If a thumbnail is not uploaded to an upcoming event, a cropped version of the channel art or avatar is displayed. When you're live, we will automatically select a frame every five minutes.
- Set up your stream key:
- To get started quickly, select a 'Single-use stream key'. This will be a 'variable resolution' stream key which means that you will not need to specify a resolution or frame rate.
- More advanced users can create a Reusable stream key. You can either choose to specify a resolution and frame rate or opt to make a variable resolution stream key. Reusable stream keys can be used between multiple live events – set it up once and never think about it for future streams!
- The stream key and ingestion URLs will be displayed below to set up your encoder. Copy/paste to your encoder, or select your encoding software from the drop-down menu to download XML.
- Click Save
You will not be able to adjust this after the event has started. Choose the highest-quality resolution and make sure that your encoder and Internet connection can stream to your selected bandwidth.
