MyVRSpot’s Live Broadcasting is a streaming solution that is a completely web-based solution, which provides an environment where the user can generate a stream (broadcast) from most any video device, including webcams, USB connected cameras, and even iOS and Android smartphones.
The broadcasting solution is another add-on application with a separate pricing structure, that runs within, and integrates directly with, the MyVRSpot system. In addition to streaming of your event, all of your broadcasts are captured, then converted into an MP4 video file, and then placed into your MyVRSpot account. From there, you can share the recorded stream (video) by using the embed code and placing it in a webpage, add it in a Showcase page, or share it through the MediaSpot feature.
Live Streaming Workflow
The following chart outlines the workflow for the streaming solution. When you start a stream, the camera connects directly to the MyVRSpot servers. The servers then push this stream out to the end users that are wanting to watch the stream (your broadcast.)
