StreamYard Guest Support
ALL STREAMED BROADCASTS ARE DONE USING STREAM YARD
This is to help you if wish to appear as a guest on a streamed broadcast either for a reading or in any other way. This page is written on the assumption that you are watching on Facebook but as Marc streams to multiple locations on every broadcast these instructions will apply for any other venue as well.
You will have two different URL's or web addresses. Not these which are for illustrative purposes only and will not work for an event.
The first link is for the streamed event itself:
The second link is for the invitation for the reading or to take part.
You must have either a computer with microphone and camera, tablet or smart phone. It is by far better on a Computer but other device should work. Marc must be able to see and hear you during the reading. Also use only Chrome or Firefox - no other browsers will work.
Okay if you have seen the link for a meeting, or been sent it for a reading.
Open the link for the broadcast on Facebook or other setting first do not use the invitation link yet.
Wait till the event starts.
Then launch in another tab or browser the invitation link. You may get feedback from the first link so close it at this point.
Allow StreamYard to access your camera and mic.
Make sure you have the correct camera and mic selected.
You will be in what is called the Stream Yard back studio. You will see what is going on in the screen and other people and feeds including Marc. Note however Marc will not interact with you till be brings you up for a reading.
Once the reading is done close the tab for the invitation and go back to the location of the broadcast.
As above but you are hear because you are doing some action already agreed with Marc before the broadcast. Log on ten minutes before the broadcast for final arrangements ad instructions and stay till the end.
