Live Broadcast

First you need to have a capture profile selected and active. Learn about 'Capture Profiles'.

After you have selected a capture profile to broadcast from then you can change transmission rates and other settings opening the 'Live Broadcast Settings' dialog.

The most important parameter to configure for a broadcast is the transmission rate because it must be lower or equal to the audience internet connection speed in order for them to receive the live feed properly. It must also be lower or equal to your own internet connection speed because broadcasts can't be faster than your connection speed..

IMPORTANT: Broadcasts will have a delay of at least 5 seconds because 1AVCenter uses Microsoft Streaming Media technologies to make the broadcasts and this delay is the minimum delay necessary to ensure a reliable transmission.

To start broadcasting click on the start button on the 'Live Broadcast Action Toolbar', or on the same option on the 'Live Broadcast Action Menu'.

You can also schedule when to start broadcasting. To set a schedule use the scheduler at the 'Live Broadcast Settings' dialog.

To stop broadcasting click on the stop button on the 'Live Broadcast Action Toolbar', or on the same option on the 'Live Broadcast Action Menu'.

After you click the Start button on the 'Live Broadcast Action Toolbar', or on the 'Live Broadcast Action Menu', and the broadcast has started you can then see how it is working by testing it on your media player. All you have to do is right-click on the 'Live Broadcast Status Panel' and opt to 'Test the Download Link' just like this:

Broadcasts take about 3-5 seconds to start after you click to start and may have a small delay for viewers/listeners depending on network traffic.

After a broadcast is finished its copy will be kept and will appear on the 'Live Broadcast File List'. The copy of the broadcast will a size relative to the quality of the transmission.

Open the 'File Menu' or right-click on the just recorded file to learn what you can do with the copy of the broadcast.

That's it. It's quite simple thanks also to Window Streaming Media Technology which is the base technology underneath the process.
