WHERE TO STREAM
Facebook Live is the most popular platform at the moment, but Twitch and YouTube are also big players in this league. Twitch is known primarily for video-game Streaming but lots of people use Twitch because users can so easily donate during Live Streams. It’s a popular choice for independent streamers who can make a living from the donations. YouTube Live is growing in popularity now and it offers similar donation abilities to Twitch. Instagram also has Live Streaming but its audience is mobile and tends not to watch Live Streams. Your audience’s platform of choice may vary, so it’s best to stream everywhere at the same time to capture the most viewers.
CONTENT DELIVERY NETWORKS
A CDN acts as a buffer between your website and the users trying to access it.
When you host a website on your own server, users trying to access it will put strain on your server because it has to load it for every single user that is visiting it. If you’re seeing lots and lots of visitors, soon your website will load very slowly and users will give up on waiting for it. This is due to a lack of bandwidth. It’s not 2006 anymore, no one is going to wait 10 minutes for a 30-second YouTube clip to load, just like no one is going to wait 5 minutes for your page to load. Bandwidth is like a water pipe – a thin pipe isn’t going to allow a lot of water through and all the houses on your street have really weak water pressure. A large, wide pipe lets a lot of water, or a lot of users, to access the same source of water at the same time. So, when it comes to Live Streaming, heavy loads can cause the video quality of your stream to suffer heavily and even stop playing.
A CDN prevents slowdowns by saving the newest version of your website to its own array of servers and delivering that to your visitors, completely taking the strain away from your own server, giving you far more bandwidth. You could then provide a 4K Live Stream to potentially millions of viewers across the globe.
CDNs also eliminate ping – the increase in loading speed caused by the real-world distance between your server and a user of your site – by loading your website to servers located all over the world.
CDNs also provide protection from hackers and bots trying to shut your website down. Many CDNs offer a firewall that will filter out these malicious requests that would otherwise overload your server and completely take your website offline, giving visitors the dreaded 404 – Not Found error instead.
There are many ways to get started with CDNs – popular subscription-based services include CloudFlare, Incapsula, and Akamai.

BENEFITS OVER PRE-RECORDED VIDEO
You might think it’s odd – we went from watching live news on cable television to watching pre-recorded videos on YouTube, and now we’re going back? It’s not quite like that – the biggest difference is that you don’t need a costly monthly cable subscription and you’re not limited to news networks and sports. Now anything can be streamed and watched by anyone (with an internet connection). People have always liked watching events unfold live, it feels more like they’re participating. And they can literally participate too. Most online platforms allow users to comment on the stream and you can immediately address their comments and questions. This means a streamer (you) can give shout-outs to specific users commenting on your stream. It also eliminates the waiting period between an event and a coverage video going up, during which people might lose interest or the event has become irrelevant.
Best way to stream to multiple places at once (cloud-based streaming)
How do you start streaming
BEST WAY TO STREAM TO MULTIPLE PLACES AT ONCE
Your audience is probably spread over multiple platforms, so you need to stream to multiple places to reach all of them!
There’s more than one way to do this. Cloud-based services are gaining popularity – where you stream to a third-party cloud server and then they stream to Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, etc. all at the same time for you. There’s a full list of these different services on Animaker’s blog.
If you’re low-budget, a cloud-based service such as Restream.io lets you stream to over 30 platforms at $14.99 a month per channel.
WIRECAST: FACEBOOK LIVE STREAMING – EP 1
Wirecast is a software by Telestream that allows you to setup a professional Facebook Live stream. You have the choice of using multiple cameras and adding in any background you want if you use a green screen.
To stream to Facebook from Wirecast, you simply need to authenticate your Facebook account from Wirecast. You can directly create events that will let your followers know you’re planning to live stream, set up a delay in your stream, and even put animated graphics over your stream.

Broadcasting for a large audience?

Apply mid-roll advertisements to your live WebCasting production
Viewer information is vital in planning your future productions. Google Analytics informs you of how many viewers you have and how long they watch. Many clients use this service to better tailor their advertisements and time their breaks. After accumulating data over several broadcasts, clients often change more important aspects of their production, such as overall length and/or visual effects.
Study Google Analytics of your live audience!
While the overwhelming number of WebCasts are in HD there has been a remarkable increase in accessable high speed bandwidth in most major media markets. Enter 4K Streaming Video. Netflix is doing it. Why shouldn’t you? Actually the following was shot in 5K VFR but WebCast in 4K.
