Streams: Test the Stream Setup

Learn how to test your stream setup

To be covered


Whether you have live streams, webinars, or a recording of streams in your event, it is imperative to test that everything works on your event before launching your event. Once you have added your streams to Brella, you can start testing how they work. 

A good rule of thumb is to test that your stream setup works on your service provider's end. If the live stream looks good on the service provider's side, there should not be any issues in Brella either. 

How to test your stream (steps)


  1. Navigate to the admin panel - 'Streams' tab. 
  2. Check that the stream you have added is toggled as green.
  3. Next, navigate to your event at next.brella.io - Streams tab.
  4. Confirm if the live stream or video is connected.

🔍 RTMP can be used only in third-party tools such as video encoders, streaming destination software, etc. It cannot be added to Brella.

Tips for testing your stream setup

🌟Tip 1:
Create a test stream tab that you can hide from your attendees.

🌟Tip 2: 
You can set up all your streams for the event day, test them, and then hide the stream tab from your attendees completely or partially before the actual event date. We recommend keeping the stream tab available for your attendees from the launch date to avoid any confusion about where the live streams or sessions will be happening.

🌟Tip 3:
Before launching the event and your stream, check if you have enabled the chat for the stream and added the possible sidebar integrations you want.
