LIVE QUESTION & ANSWER

 

Can we make guest audio controls persistent? Or move out the way so we can see what’s happening? 

  • Maybe we could look at slider on the tiles for each user? 
  • Be good to control audio on the fly without opening window
  • Thanks for the feedback 

 

How can we avoid audio echo feedback / loop when using 2nd devices in same location?

  • Far enough apart to not pick up each others audio
  • Mute all those mics not in use 
  • Could have two cameras in two tabs on Streamyard (so you can mute tab & mic in that tab? 

 

Can we share audio files like we do video files?

 

 

I want to use screen share but can’t see button on laptop? How do I make share window smaller? 

  • Can’t change the screen share size in Streamyard
  • You would need to resize windows for this 

 

How to crosspost for Facebook Live

  • Not multi-streaming 
  • But how to share the same content not broadcast to multiple places
  • Think we have a doc on this : https://streamyard.com/contact and type in ‘Crossposting

 

Can you do multiple draws? 

 

Is there a way to get entrants to giveaway tool?  

  • We don’t have this for now
  • Pulled from chat comments
  • How would you want to use this – would it be in moment to see who entered, or after to see all entrants? 

 

Can we have warning come up if you want to go live but still got setting on private

  • Which platform? 
  • We can’t see privacy settings atm from Facebook?
    We are talking to them about this. 
  • How are you using this? 

 

If host has guest and internet drops out how long will stream stay live in Linkedin? 

  • If streaming with a guest – the stream will stay open
  • If there is no guest or everyone leaves then it would close after about 5-10 minutes 

 

If using iPad for Streamyard, how could I share a large video file? 

  • If you can prepare it before hand , then  upload to Streamyard 
  • You could then play from Streamyard dashboard when needed

 

Can we have guests seeing each other backstage? 

  • Would need this to be clear you can see each other
  • Not active right now though

 

Can we make it easier for guest 6 to get the hosts attention?

  • We are working on improving this 
  • We know with busier back stages it needs more consideration

 

Can we let guests communicate in the green room with producer

  • Not at the moment other than through private chat 
  • Considering this though as more people doing events
  • Makes sense for larger events and longer streams

 

When will GIFs be released longer than 1 minute? 

  • These are capped by file size
  • GIFs are currently capped at 3MB

 

Any plans for 4K steaming any time soon?

  • NO specific date for this 
  • Not any time soon as it’s pretty data heavy
  • Things are always improving so you never know 
  • It will take some time 
  • Not planned for now 
  • Got to consider users machines to handle it too
  • Got to make as accessible and practical as possible
  • Not everyone has the bandwidth yet! 

 

 

When is Teams feature being rolled out? 

  • Early summer
  • No specific date as yet! 

 

 

If I review a YouTube video on Streamyard will it get taken down for copyright issues?
