These instructions walk you through how to stream from a browser on ChefsFeed's livestream platform. If you want to learn how to host an experience on ChefsFeed's livestream platform, follow these instructions. If you prefer to stream from an encoder, follow these instructions. The steps are the same whether you're on mobile or a laptop/desktop computer, except where noted.
1. Select STREAM FROM BROWSER, which is the default option:
2. Select GO LIVE. If you're on mobile you have to be in landscape orientation (please avoid rotating your phone to portrait orientation while streaming):
If you don't go live within 15 minutes of the experience start time, we automatically end the event and it can't be recovered.
3. If you haven't already, grant ChefsFeed access to your microphone and camera:
If you previously declined camera and microphone access, you'll have to enable it in your browser's settings.
It may take up to 10 seconds to generate the stream, then you're live! However, we don't broadcast the stream to guests until the experience start time. They'll see what you see, though the stream will be delayed 10–20 seconds depending on your configuration. On a laptop/desktop computer you can preview the guest view using the Guest View link.
4. When you're done streaming, select the STOP STREAM button:
You can start and stop streaming as many times as you like by using the GO LIVE and STOP STREAM buttons. Guests will see a message that you've paused streaming. If you stop streaming for 15 minutes, we automatically end the experience.
5. End the test or experience. If you stop streaming before the experience start time, we consider the stream a test and you'll see a button for END TEST, which will take you back to step one:
If you stop streaming after the experience start time, you'll see the option to END EVENT. Only select this when the experience is over. This button ends the experience entirely and starts processing the recording, which guests can view later at the same link.
6. Select OK in the pop-up warning you this will end the experience:
The experience is now over:
And a recording will be available once it's done processing:
