Twitter / Periscope Update 

  • Periscope officially sunset end of last month, everything moving to Twitter LIVE
  • Live on Twitter is still the same if already connected
  • Flow is a little different – as it’s now Twitter LIVE, but connect through Periscope API to still go live 
  • Fairly seamless transition since the sunsetting of the Periscope platform on 31st March 2021 
  • Twitter is rolling out new features and improving the process over time too also through the API

Any plans to add Vimeo to streaming options? 

  • We would love to understand usage case
  • Open to embracing new 
  • Would it be public stream not on YouTube or private to your website? 

Any recommendations of camera & mic setup? 

  • Webcam 
  • Geige
    •  Blue Yeti
    • Logitech C920 
  • Dan
    • Nano Yeti
  • Rodecaster is also a good piece of kit for call in shows [ Audio mixer ] 

Any cache for remembering display name? 

  • This should save automatically, unless different machine or browser? 
  • If not please check in with support

Could we look at feature for live scoreboard we can update live? 

  • Cool option but not on plans as yet

Please could you allows larger file size for HD videos? 

When do you think you will have TEAM account? ANd moving layout

  • It’s about streamlined process
  • Interested for more flexibility and customisation without making more complex 

Any plans to allow larger file size for HD Countdowns? 
The file share option is not a smooth source, especially for use during a church stream?

  • File share depends on your connection 
  • Overlays & videos fully uploaded 
  • Open to updating the file size & length 
  • Current limit 200MB & 10 Mins

When are you going to create team account? And will you allow us to change layouts?

  • No definitive date for this yet
  • Moving screen layout is asked for a lot, but it’s balancing being super streamlined and as easy as possible to use
  • Want to give as much power and flexibility as possible without becoming cluttered and having buttons all over the screen
  • Team account – we are interested in this but need to look at the best way to make this practical and functional 

Is there way to post direct to Linkedin events? 

  • Currently have to make on LI event 
  • Copy the details
  • Then paste info in SY 

Any plans to integrate with Amazon live? 

  • Still very early not sure it’s open for integration yet? 
  • As soon as we can will be interested in doing this

Could add column to the left of studio screen ……

  • Love this idea
  • Always looking for ways to improve the interface

We have event where 2 sessions follow each other.
Anyone have any experience what happens if there is an overlap?
Will this break the overlay?

  • Best to test with unlisted streams to be certain
  • Has worked when tested in the past
  • If the same could be an issue but if two different event streams should be fine

Do you find better on personal or business accounts?
Or use business page for various social media’s to integrate for Streamyard?
I have co-hosts on several shows… 

  • Best to use business pages as they give you more analytics 
  • The platforms like Facebook want you to use the business pages for business. 

Would you be open to more than 10 brands on Professional Plan 

  • Love to understand how you would use this
  • Open to exploring this further
  • Are you producing shows for others or are they all your own? 

Please allow comment pinning & have comments on left hand side, so always visible

  • Noted and always looking to improve the interface continually 

Is it possible to get rid of the show hide button when hovering over comments?
This creates a big issues for those using cursor as magnifier.

  • Noted and want to be as discoverable as possible
  • If we can find way to make easy without this then we will
