The Easiest way to connect to most Encoders that are not listed in the Switchboard API is to grab the Stream Key and Server URL ( located below the Switchboard Confidence monitor ) and paste it into the stream settings of your Encoder. If you are setting up a new Switchboard account you can select Other from the Encoder Selection.
NOTE: Some encoders only provide one line for both your URL and Stream Key. In this case, provide your URL and Stream Key in one strand, i.e. URL/stream key; see below:
You will need to have both Switchboard and the encoder open.
In the next steps, you will go back and forth between Switchboard and your encoder as you grab the Stream Server/URL and Stream Key inside of Switchboard.
Both, the Stream Server/URL and Stream Key inside of Switchboard are located below the confidence monitor.
Copy the Steam Server/URL and Stream Key from Switchboard and paste into the stream settings of your Encoder.
When you are ready to Go Live
- Start sending video from your encoder to Switchboard Live.
- Verify that the video is displaying in the Switchboard confidence monitor.
- Go Live to your destinations one by one or Bulk select using the white box at the top of the destination group.
