In this lesson we'll cover...
Welcome back to the Streamyard Studio Overview.
Let's now explore the options on the side tab.
In the comments section you'll see all the comments that your attendees are sending. So, if, for example, you are streaming to Youtube, Hopin and Twitch, you'll see the comments that viewers in each of these different platforms are sending.
However, if you are streaming to a custom RTMP destination, comments won't flow into the StreamYard Studio.
To increase engagement and make your viewers feel heard, you can add any comment to the stream by clicking on Show. This feature is especially useful when replying to your viewer's questions.
We know that with the excitement from your attendees, the chat can get pretty crazy, that's why you have the option to star comments. When you star a comment, it'll be fixed on the top of your feed so you can easily refer to it later. You can use this feature to keep track of interesting questions you want to address.
The comments you send here will be shared in your viewer's feed. If you wish to communicate privately with your speakers and co-hosts when you are live, you can do so via the private chat.
Going over to Banners, you'll see the option to create a folder. Creating folders will help you keep things organized and ready to go during the live stream. Inside the folder, click on Create a banner and add your text. If you want your banner to continuously scroll at the bottom of the screen like this, check this box. Banners are especially useful to remind your viewers of important message or to provide them with structure by letting them know which section of your show they're watching.
Next, we have the Brand section to further define the look of your stream and make it unique to your brand. You can have different brand folders for different Brands. For example, we have Hopin and Streamyard.
Here you can choose your brand color, select your preferred style for banners, comments, and names, add your logo to the stream or upload a customized background. You can also upload an overlay to give a more professional look to your stream.
In the video clips section, you can upload short videos such as intros and outros to have them ready during the broadcast. Once live, conveniently add them to the stream by clicking on show.
Playing background music during breaks or while waiting for a speaker to come up on stage is a good idea to keep your audience engaged.
However, it's important to make sure you use royalty free tracks. That's why we've included some royalty free tracks that you can select here. Check the Loop box if you want the track to keep playing.
As you have seen, the Streamyard studio is really easy to use and it's full of features to wow your viewers. You are now ready to go live!
