WebRTC – Live Streaming

Live Broadcasting made Easy!


* Now available as a beta release! Let us know if you would like it activated within your Studio account.

Simply put, EVERY Ministry that uploads their audio to sermon.net should be using this feature to live stream it instead. Just like a radio broadcast, it makes your services available to your audience in real-time. Perfect for the shut-ins, and those not able to attend in person. Following the live broadcast, you can automatically archive a recording of the stream, in whole or in part, for 24/7 on-demand access.

 

WebRTC Broadcasting allows you to stream directly from your browser (Chrome only), with no other software required! This will work from a MAC, PC, and most Android devices. (Note: iOS support is currently being debugged.)

 

Within your browser, you simply select the media sources (camera and/or microphone) that you would like to use, then Start the Stream. That’s it! You are live broadcasting, and recording server-side.

 

NOTE: When you first visit your Live Episode that contains the WebRTC feature within your Studio, the Chrome browser will ask for permission to access your system’s device (microphone, camera, etc…) to stream with.

Give this video a look for a quick introduction to browser-based streaming!

 

Troubleshooting WebRTC in your Chrome Browser

Be sure you are using the Chrome browser

 

If you are having difficulties you will need to make sure your Sermon Studio’s Live Broadcast Episode page is granted permission to access your system’s media devices (Microphone and/or Camera) within Chrome.

 

1. A good place to start is by clearing your browser’s cache & history in Chrome.

In Chrome’s address bar go to:  chrome://settings/  (copy & paste into Chrome’s address bar)

…scroll down to the very bottom and click on ADVANCED. At the bottom of the ‘Privacy and security’ section you will see ‘Clear browsing data’ …do this.

 

2. Device Permissions; go to the following pages within your Chrome browser:

a] chrome://settings/content/camera (copy & paste into Chrome’s address bar)

Have it set to ‘Ask before using’ = ON. Once you have granted your Sermon Studio page access it should show up in the ALLOW section.

 

b] chrome://settings/content/microphone (copy & paste into Chrome’s address bar)

Have it set to ‘Ask before using’ = ON. Once you have granted your Sermon Studio page access it should show up in the ALLOW section.

 

 

3. After you have made the above adjustments, restart your system and give it a fresh start.
