Once you have created and set-up your stream, as well as added and configured the options that you want, you can start broadcasting your stream to your audience.
Follow the below steps to start broadcasting your stream:
- Check that you can see the preview of the stream in the viewer window, then when you are ready to start broadcasting, click on the Go live button.
If no input stream is detected (there is no preview), then you will not be able to Go live with the stream.
Once you click Go live, you will start broadcasting to your audience, and your allocated streaming time will start to be used.
- As the stream starts, if you have enabled those options, you will see the number of participants viewing the stream (viewers), how many times they have clapped, as well as any Q&A questions they have sent.
While the stream is running, remember to moderate the Q&A questions and comments.
- Whenever you need to stop the stream, click on the End stream button.
Once you click End stream, you will stop broadcasting to your audience, and you will receive a message asking if you want to publish the stream recording for your audience to see on-demand.
