How do I broadcast live using the Wirecast encoder?

When you sign up for flash streaming, we send you live broadcasting instructions for Adobe Live Encoder version 2.5.

We also set up a sample page with an embedded flash player which sources from your live streaming.

Using the Wirecast encoder is similar to using Adobe Live Encoder, but there are a couple minor changes that need to be made.

First, make a modification to the live streaming sample player page, so that instead of "livestream" being the final portion of the content variable, it's "livestream.sdp".

Then, fire up Wirecast and use the following broadcast settings:

Encoder Preset: Choose one of the existing H.264 presets, or choose Edit from the drop down list and create your own - just make sure H.264 is the chosen encoder format for your preset.

Destination: Announce to Quicktime Streaming Server

Host Name: Use domain:1935, where domain is the primary domain name off your flash streaming plan. You can use the IP address of your flash streaming plan if your domain is not pointed to us yet. To get the IP address, log in to your cpanel control panel and look down the left side of the control panel homepage for the IP assigned to your plan.

File Location: live/livestream.sdp

Username: The username assigned to your flash streaming (see the instructional email we sent)

Password: The password assigned to your flash streaming (see the instructional email we sent)

Broadcast over TCP: Leave this unchecked!

Click save and you can then begin broadcasting, and your broadcast should be viewable on the live sample player page we installed for you. You can take the code from that page and incorporated it anywhere into your website.
