When you create a Live Broadcast of the type 'Production' or 'Live Distribution' you will have the option to broadcast to various destinations. Besides being able to broadcast on Social Networks, you can broadcast to web players or other personalized destinations (RTMP).
What are my options? What do I need?
- Create a customizable Watchity player (embed / URL)
Use this option if you need to create a web player to embed it on your web page (embed), or to share it with your audience (link). Through the Watchity players, you can also add a series of additional personalization options (form, chat, etc.).
- Connect with an external player (HLS)
Use this option if you already have a commercial player embedded in your website (Brightcove, TheoPlayer, etc). Broadcast from Watchity to your player through an HLS stream.
- Enter an RTMP from a publication point (push)
Use this option to broadcast to RTMP publication points, whether they are Social Networks that you do not have its credentials, video apps, OTT platforms or other custom destinations such as external players and decoders (Kaltura, Akamai, etc). Broadcast from Watchity to your publishing point using an RTMP stream.
- Get the RTMP address of the Mixer / Control Room (pull)
Use this option to ingest the program signal in a traditional video system (decoder, IP to SDI encoder, etc.). Broadcast from Watchity to your decoding system using an RTMP stream.
Watchity Player (embed o URL)
This option allows you to generate a web player that you can embed on your web page or share it in link format. When you start broadcasting, the content will be visible on your Watchity player. Choose the embed or link mode of use to easily reach your audience.
Additional configuration options:
Using this type of player, you can also customize different functionalities: add a registration form, activate chat during the broadcast, create restricted lists, send personalized reminders, etc.
- Send email reminders: by enabling this option, viewers who register prior to the start of the broadcast will receive a notification in their calendar service (outlook or google calendar).
- Restricted broadcast: by enabling this option, you can block access to unwanted viewers. Upload a listing (.CSV) with authorized users.
- Activate chat: by enabling this option, you will have a chat for the audience that can be public or private.
Remember that from the Live Broadcast configuration, either a 'Production' or a 'Live Distribution', you can download the registration reports and control the conversation in all chats. This is another exclusive feature if you use the Watchity player.
Once you have configured your player, you can always edit it again to modify the text fields, the possibility of chat (with its different configurations), add files . csv to restrict access, etc.
External Player (HLS)
This option allows you to connect with an external web player. When you start the broadcast, the content will be visible on your commercial player (TheoPlayer, Brightcove, JW Player, etc). Name the output and get the HLS code (.m3u8) that you must enter into your playing system.
RTMP publication points (push)
This option allows you to connect to RTMP publication points. When you start the broadcast, the content will be visible in your destinations, whether they are Social Networks that you do not have the credentials, video apps, OTT platforms or other custom destinations such as external players and decoders (Kaltura, Akamai, etc).
RTMP program output (pull)
This option allows you to obtain the RTMP code of the program signal made in the Live Mixer or the Control Room. When you start broadcasting, the content will be visible on your traditional video system (decoder, IP to SDI encoder, etc.). Broadcast from Watchity to your decoding system using an RTMP stream.
