In this lesson, we provide an overview of your StreamYard dashboard. This lesson is geared towards our StreamYard Business customers.
Welcome to your Streamyard Business dashboard. From here, you'll be able to connect the platforms you want to stream to, add team members that will help you run your shows and organize the different broadcasts that you have planned. If you are using the Streamyard backstage included in your Hopin license, you won't have access to this dashboard, so we recommend you to skip this video. Reach out to sales if you’re interested in upgrading to StreamYard Business. Let's start with the destinations tab here. Destinations are the platforms that you'd like to broadcast to. For example Hopin, Youtube, LinkedIn or Facebook. Click on Add a destination and select your preferred platform.Then, follow the set up instructions. Now let's connect Hopin. As you can see,I need to provide a key and a RTMP URL. To find these details go to your Hopin Event Dashboard, click on Venue > Stages and select the stage you want to connect to your Streamyard Studio. Then scroll down and select RTMP Stream. Bearing in mind that if you select View StreamYard Backstage, you'll access the light version of Streamyard instead of your Business Package capabilities. Once in the RTMP Stream tab, copy the key and URL and paste them into Streamyard. And that's it, your stage is now connected and you'll be able to find it here. It's important to know that each Hopin Stage has a different RTMP URL and Key, so if you have 3 Hopin Stages you need to set up 3 different destinations in StreamYard. If you ever want to broadcast to a destination that is not on the list, select the Custom RTMP option.
Here, you'll be required to enter the RTMP URL and the stream key. Next,let's have a look at the Spaces section. A space is a folder where your broadcasts studios live in.
You can use up to 30 spaces to organize different series you run like for example Webinars VS Customer interviews or Team events. And to make your life easier when working with multiple broadcasts, you'll find the upcoming broadcasts here and the Past ones here. If you want to add a new space, click on the plus sign, type the name and click on Create Space. Now it's ready for you to start creating your broadcast studios. To create a live broadcast from one of your spaces, click on create a broadcast and choose live stream. Then, select the destination you want to broadcast to. With the StreamYard business plan you'll be able to multi-stream in up to 8 different platforms. You'll also have the option to use the broadcast studio only for recording by clicking here. This will allow you to pre-record your content and stream it later.
Lastly, we have the members Tab. Here you can add team members by clicking Invite a member and entering their email. They'll have access to all spaces by default, but you can limit this by unchecking All Spaces and assigning them to the spaces you want.
You can also choose the role they'll have in each of your spaces.
With coHost access, they can only help you run a stream by clicking the different media elements they want to show on screen. However, they won't be able to start or stop a broadcast. Co hosts don't count towards your license seats.
With Creator access, they'll be able to create and manage broadcasts and brand assets. However, a creator won't be able to add destinations or invite people to the account.
If you want them to be able to do so, you'll need to provide them with Admin access.
Once you select the right role, send them an invite by clicking here.
And that's all you need to know about the Streamyard Dashboard. I'll see you in the next video to learn about the Studio.
