All the latest bug fixes, updates, news and questions from the founder Geige Vandentop & Dan Briggs, of Streamyard, at their weekly Town Hall


Every Sunday 6pm PT


  1. Ease of use
  2. Stability
  3. Professional streams!



FUN FACT : Favourite 4th July / Canada Day as a kid? 

  • Geige : 4th July ver at my friends house 
  • Dan : Joined a long distance race & won! Mum also sells hand made crafts, and we setup to sell drinks. My first entrepreneurial venture! 

Infinite scrolling comments in beta

  • Currently studio only saves around 120-150 comments 
  • Adding infinite scrolling comments, so you can see all comments in studio
  • Email us to test this feature – With subject line ‘scrolling comments’

LinkedIn Live connections only going away

  • Relatively small change
  • Connections only streams have now gone away 
  • On profiles, it’s not public only!

Set amount of storage?

  • Would you prefer this rather than set time limit? 
  • Love your feedback on this 
  • We are working on options for more storage / deleting older recordings

YouTube Polls

  • Have you got or seen this feature yes? 
  • What do you think of it? 

Getting started webinar

YouTube Premieres 

  • Curious how many are using this feature? 
  • Do you use in any clever ways alongside your livestreams? 

Write for Streamyard

Do you use notes or teleprompters?

  • Curious how many of you use notes or teleprompters while doing your shows
  • I know I use the banners as my main talking points, want to hear more on how you do your shows 

Process of inviting guests

  • Curious to hear your process of inviting guests onto your streams
  • How many of you are using calendar scheduling tools as opposed to emailing back and forward ad-hoc
  • What steps do you go through to get people on the streams, and can we add anything to ease some of those pain points


When will we be able to control video share? To start automatically rather than being selected by host? 

  • There is a setting to automatically add screens / videos to the broadcast. If off won’t add automatically, 

Can we add an audio file as opposed to just video file?

  • Not as yet

Any plans yet for templates or ability to duplicate previous show settings? 

  • We do have plans to make easier to use everything from previous shows 
  • Just working out what that looks like 

Will you work with “new” social media platforms?

  • Yes, we are always open to working with new platforms, as long as they have APIs to allow us to

Will infinite comments ease the comment dump where you get 20-30 comments all at once? 

  • We can look into this
  • No would not affect that 

Feature request : Animated background (Not GIFs) to get rid of boring static backgrounds

  • Hesitant as harder to make perfectly looping backgrounds
  • Could be jarring if not implemented properly

Can we detach comments to share them on screen? 

  • Can share one at a time at the moment 
  • No way to show all on screen right now

Will there ever be a time where we can play videos while staying on screen and not muting mics? (So we can play & pause video)

  • You can do this now under – Share  > Video Share 

Has the streamyard link formula changed? When I shared yesterday, it looked longer than normal

  • This was a mistake on our part, that contained extra parameters 
  • It’s back to normal again now 

Dow e always have 24/7 support on standby? 

Can you schedule a show in advance and have it play video?

  • You can schedule shows but not have a video play when it starts at the moment 
  • We are looking to add this though

Will it ever be possible to download past livestreams direct to Google Drive?

  • Curious if you would like online in StreamYard or would prefer just direct to Drive & why
  • Do you have a flow where it goes to Drive and others work with the files etc? 
  • Interested to know how people are using these features, so we can build to better support you all

Is the keyword for the giveaway tool case sensitive?

  • Not at all 
  • You can even make it a longer keyword term 

Can you consider HOT KEY for when we need to switch between cameras?

  • We are working on this and shared initial  screenshot a few weeks ago

Would be great to have reminder system / registration system to remind viewers to tune in for specific streams with link to social platforms we are broadcasting to

  • Would you prefer this integrated directly into Streamyard, or connected to your existing tools like Mailchimp, Drip, Aweber etc? 

Can you share more on upcoming Hopin event this week? 

  • You can register here :
  • Some great speakers & always good networking 
  • Discussion around the future of Hybrid Events
