Broadcast live from the Screen9 App


    This article explains how to use the Screen9 App as encoder for your live event.

    1. If you don't already have a scheduled event, you need to create a new live event, this is usually done via your browser but can also be done directly from the App under "Console".

      More details on how to create a new live event can be found in this article.

    2. While configuring your live event take note of what live channel the event is on as the App needs to be configured to the same channel in order for the stream to work. You can also see the channel of your event on media details page after the event is created.

        • In the "New Live Event" wizard:
        • On the media details page of the live event:
    3. Configure the App by going to "Settings" and under "Default Live Channel" select the same account and channel that your scheduled live event is configured to run on.

    4. When the event is in preview mode you can go to the "Broadcast Live" section of the App and start streaming live by pressing the record button. If your phone is in vertical mode you will be asked to turn it to horizontal mode before you are able to start streaming.

      Note: If the App cannot connect to the streaming server double check that the event and the App is running on the same channel and that the live event is in preview mode.

    5. You should see the stream "Health" icon in Console turn green and then the video stream appear in "Producer View" shortly after.

      You can use the controls in the App to mute microphone, switch camera, and toggle the phones led flash. When you are ready to start the stream either wait for the Event start time or press "Start Now" manually in the Console.

    6. To stop streaming simply press the red icon in the App and if you are finished before the configured event end time you can stop it manually in the Console.

    7. If recording was enabled the event will be available as a video on demand on your account after the event has ended.
