Live Streaming with a Smartphone
Live-streaming is easy, especially since we're all carrying around cameras in our smartphones.
So you’ve decided you want to start live streaming to Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitch, or any of the other number of platforms out there. You have your laptop, you’ve got your video camera. But what next?
Here's a quick guide to get started:
1. High Speed Internet
First, making sure you have a solid high-speed Internet connection is a prerequisite. Any video stream will require as much bandwidth as you can get.
2. Live Streaming Equipment
The things you will need to get started:
Microphone suitable for good clean voice recording (optional but highly recommended)
3. Live Encoder Settings
Almost all laptops do not have a video input, making a video capture card (or device) a necessity.
4. Professional Online Video Platforms
Certain services may have resolution limitations and connectivity requirements that will limit your hardware options. Some popular services include Facebook Live, Instagram, Youtube, Zoom and Twitch!
