Spread the love

This is a hands on review

I use the software described in this blog post daily in my live broadcasts.

I am speaking directly about my experiences. As I explore more, I will revisit and update this blog post.
I am on a journey to discover how to broadcast live to our websites using Content Delivery Networks. CDNs take the video feed from our broadcasting studio and transmit it to destinations we select.

How does it work?

Steven's Review

System Operation and Connection

The Viloud interface is intuitive and easy to use,  we can create an account and be operational in minutes. There are complete instructions for embedding the HTML 5 Web Player.
Setting up is so easy, going Live runs very smoothly. Connection to Be.Live is easy, simply copy and paste the URL and Stream key in your BeLive Studio.

When you go live on Belive, the signal is transmitted to Viloud, you are then live on the websites where you have embedded the ViLoud Player,

The HTML 5 Web Player

The Viloud player is one of the best I have seen. The broadcasts are flawless and reliable When you are not live the player plays Youtube playlists.


Broadcast Destinations

On the Business plan, which costs $96 per month you can go live on your website(s). The video is stored locally and can become part of your tv channel.

How I use Viloud

Viloud does have an excellent HMTL 5 Video player which you can embed on your website(s) I have embedded the player on 8 Web pages, when I go live the broadcast is on all the posts,

I have created posts for each of my weekly broadcasts. I embedded the player and added my Youtube playlist of previous recordings.

When I am not live readers can watch replays

I also created a TV Channel that broadcasts from 9 am ET every day,  See https://www.livevideotraining.net/announcing-our-new-tv-channel-web-talks-live-tv-using-viloud/
