Scheduled Broadcast
 

7. We recommend hitting stream on Larix 5-10 minutes before your scheduled broadcast start time so it goes live on the time you scheduled. Example: If you scheduled a broadcast to start at 10 AM. Hit the red stream button at 9:55 to ensure it goes live at 10 AM.

How to set up RTMP in the

BroadcstMe App (iOS Device)

For the IOS and IPad we can’t use the “Boxcaster” info. Please use this info for connecting to IOS and IPad:

 

BroadcastMe App

The BroadcastMe app is a free app for iOS from streaming technology company Streamaxia. It enables live streaming to any RTMP.

Get it go HERE

 

Connecting your BroadcstMe app to RTMP

The connection only requires you to fill in two fields.

 

1. One field is the URL of the server (located in your account dashboard) . This usually comes in the format “rtmp://XYZ.COM/XYZ”.

2. The second field is the stream name or stream key. This is a randomly generated code or text string. It points your streaming app to the correct live streaming channel and authorizes access at the same time. This will be provided to you prior to each scheduled broadcast.
