Self-serve stream setup:

The ability to change your source stream gives you the flexibility to update your URL so that you can switch between different streams to publish different content. You can update your source stream whenever you like as long as the stream you are replacing the URL with is live. 

 

Please note that we still need to set up the encoder before your stream will appear live in your account, please get in touch up to 24 hours before an event.

To Enter your stream URL:

  • Select the 'Options' icon on the stream you would like to update in Grabyo Studio
  • Select 'Source'
  • Select 'Edit' on the source monitor popup
  • Paste in your live stream URL and click 'Save Changes'
  • Your new stream may take a few minutes to update
  • Use the Preview Source Stream monitor to see the source of your stream
