To go live, you need the following:

  • Desktop computer or laptop

  • The latest version of Chrome or Safari browser

  • Web camera

  • Stable internet connection to avoid lags and delays. We recommend using a hard-wired connection (ethernet).

  • A pair of headphones to avoid echo and feedback

Multi-streaming overview

With Multi-streaming, you can stream to multiple destinations simultaneously. This can be a combination of the following:

⚠️ Note: It is not possible to stream to multiple YouTube channels simultaneously. You can only go live on one YouTube channel at a time.

Setting your broadcast destination

  1. Log in to your Be.Live account using the latest version of Google Chrome or Safari.

  2. Click Set Destination on the top left section of the studio.

  3. If you want to schedule a Multi-streaming broadcast, click here. If you want to go live now, do not enable the Schedule Stream toggle.

  4. Select your broadcast destination. Select Amazon, Facebook (to go live on your timeline or any page/group that you manage), YouTube (verify your YouTube account first), LinkedIn, TikTok, and Instagram or choose Custom RTMP. You can also stream to a Facebook event with RTMP.

  5. If you cannot see your Facebook page or group in the list, click here. If streaming on YouTube, learn about stream privacy settings here.

  6. Add a broadcast title and description. When broadcasting to Amazon, add stream key, URL and broadcast URL. 

  7. To add another destination, click the plus button (+) and repeat Step 4.  Note: You can have up to 5 destinations at the same time

  8. Hit Save.

Changing or removing a destination

To change a broadcast destination, simply re-select it from the dropdown menu. To remove a destination entirely (only applies to broadcasts with multiple destinations), click Remove.

Hit Save to apply all changes.

Connecting your camera

Now that destinations are set, click Camera from the toolbar to push your webcam to the staging section:

You will notice 3 buttons on the camera source:

  1. Show in Stream toggle - pushes your camera source to the broadcasting section

  2. Mute - disables your microphone (viewers stop hearing you)

  3. Stop video - disables your camera (viewers stop seeing you)

Move yourself to the broadcast by clicking on the Show in Stream toggle

Starting and ending your broadcast

After pushing your camera to the broadcasting section, click Start to begin your broadcast. A 3-second countdown will appear to signal the start of the stream. To end your broadcast, click the stop button:
