Starting the Brightcove Stream 🗓️
➡️ Step 1: Copy the Stream URL & Stream Key from 3Play
On the Confirmation page or the File Details page, copy the Stream URL and Stream Key.
➡️ Step 2: Launch Broadcast Program (Encoder)
Launch your preferred webcasting program. In this example, we’ll use OBS (Open Broadcaster Software).
➡️ Step 3: Paste the Stream URL and Stream Key from 3Play into Broadcast Program
In OBS, click Preferences > Stream.
For Service select Custom. Paste the Stream URL in the Server field. Paste the Stream Key in the Stream Key field.
Exit out of the Settings page in OBS and Save Changes.
➡️ Step 4: Add an Audio/Video Source to Broadcast Program
Make sure to add an audio/video source to the Broadcast Program. This should be the media source that you anticipate live streaming to your audience.
Note: Ensure all unnecessary audio sources (eg, Desktop Audio or Mic/Aux) are muted in your encoder to prevent overlapping audio in your stream.
➡️ Step 5: Start Streaming
