Live streaming becomes extremely easy and fun when you use OneStream. Setting up live streaming is not easy even for a tech savvy person. Most non technical persons will just give up after 15 20 min. When it comes to pre recorded videos there is hardly any cloud based solution available other than OneStream. Before OneStream you had to install a software e.g OBS or Wirecast. Set it up, configure some technical details like bit rates, frame rates, video formats etc and then hope that it works. OneStream makes live streaming so simple that anyone can stream their videos live in less than 5 min. It takes away all the pain and cumbersome tasks of setting up streams and lets you focus on your customers.
Let us explain in a simple step by step tutorial, how you can live stream your prerecorded videos with OneStream.
- If you want to receive the shareable Youtube video link before going live, turn on the "System Message" in Advanced Settings.
- Click the "copy link" icon to copy the link to your clipboard.
- Make sure livestreaming is enabled for your YouTube account, at least 48 hours before you're trying to go live. Fore more information, please refer to this article from Google.
- You need a monetized YouTube account in order to have your livestream embedded on a third-party site. This is required for it to be able to play on the EventHub page.
- For more information, please refer to this help article on How to Enable Live Streaming on YouTube.
