Live Streaming

 

New

 

 

Now you can broadcast live via any RTMP hardware or software encoder such as OBS, Wirecast or vMix.

Embed the live stream directly on a website or send the live feed to one or multiple Viloud channels. The channel automatically will switch to a live state and once the live ends the channel will switch to its normal state.

All live broadcasts will be recorded so you can easily use it like on demand content in your channels later. So that live minutes streamed will be counted like minutes hosted.

FIXED: Linear channels start from the beginning of the current video when the autoplay option is disabled.

 

Fix

 

 

When a linear channel starts, the current video is from Youtube and the autoplay option is disabled or the browser doesn't allow autoplay, the player started from the beginning of the current video. This only affected yhe version 2.0 of Viloud Player.

Now linear channels always start at the current time.
