Preview, start and stop Events

There are two ways to start a live Event:

Auto-start

  • 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.
