To do’s before going live
Ready to do your first stream?
Here we go through what you need to do in order to succeed with your first stream. If you can tick all the points in the list, you are more than ready to start live streaming your game or event. Let’s go!
First thing is first, right? So, please make sure you have created an account and a channel in order to do a live stream. Then, we hope you also read the previous guides on how to get started and how to use the Solidsport Broadcast app. Done that too? Well, you can now keep reading and start ticking the list.
- Create a test stream, watch our guide on how to do it if you’re not sure.
- If you are having troubles with your test stream, you can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- You must ensure that you have a good internet connection in the arena/hall or on the field that you are streaming from. Wi-Fi or 4G is in most cases good enough but best is always to get access to a wired network. If you are unsure about your connection, then test it out by using Speedtest.net or similar services. We recommend a speed of at least 10 mbit upload although it sometimes works just fine with 2-3 mbit if the connection is stable.
- If you are using your phone or tablet, make sure you turn off the ‘’locked screen’’ button on your device. Otherwise your viewers will watch the entire game in a vertical way, see down below how it can look.
- Place the tripod in the middle of the field or hall and if you can, a bit higher up on the bleachers. This way your viewers get a much better view of the game or competition.
- Please remember that your viewers can hear everything you’re talking about, so if you are going to comment then comment on the game and nothing else.
- Always share your channel url on your web page so people who are interested in your live streams can find them easily.
