Enable and create your first stream

To create your first Stream tab, navigate to the Streams tab in the admin panel, and have your streaming software open in another tab.

Before creating your first stream, learn what you can do at the Streams tab:

🎯  Streams feature in a nutshell:

  • You can display your event content by using the streaming setup of your choice by embedding one embed URL/link.
  • You can enable Live Chat.
  • You can add any embeddable third-party tool of your choice that helps you communicate best and engage with your audience - in your own style!  Add sidebar integrations to the Stream tab.
  • This feature can be enabled/disable at any stage of your event.
  • The first stream is your 'Intro video' shown on the event's homepage. The Intro video is a great place to add your promo video, instructive guidelines on using the platform for your event specifically, and much more.
  • You can add as many streams as you want. We recommend having no more than 10 streams.
  • You will get stream activity per visitorβ€”more information on Stream Analytics.
  • If you need troubleshooting steps when testing or setting your device up, you can find them here.

πŸ‘‰Tip: You cannot delete streams on Brella once you have added them, but you can disable them, so they are not available to your attendees. Toggle the button next to the stream title to enable/disable the stream. 

❗Note: Using free or open streaming providers as Twitch may show your broadcasted content to the public. If your event requires a more secure streaming setting, please choose another paid platform.
