Preview, start and stop Events
There are two ways to start a live Event:
- Select this option under Advanced Settings when you are setting up your event
- As soon as ingestion starts from your encoding software, an auto-start event will automatically go live and start sending data to your viewers.
- Note: Auto-start events do not auto-stop (incase you are having ingestion issues). Please remember to Stop your live event when you are done.
- When the event has ended, click Stop Streaming.
- You cannot restart your event once you have stopped it.
The Live Control Room is not currently available on mobile or tablet.
- Start your encoder.
- Click Preview to check the stream from the encoder. (Please allow 1 minute to initiate transcoding process.)
You cannot return to preview state after you have started.
