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?
Embed the player on your website or web app
It’s super simple to embed a TV channel, simply paste the embed code on your site and any changes you make will be automatically reflected, without having to replace the code.
Viloud Player is designed and developed to run on all the platforms as web, Android, iOS and Smart TV’s.
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.
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.
Ease of Use 10/10
Web Player 11/10
Low Latency 10/10
Live Video is recorded on the Viloud site
Live broadcasting is metered with a charge per minute
Viloud is a reliable way to broadcast to our websites
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/
