Setting up Your Encoder and Going Live
If you do not have a BoxCast encoder, you will need to hook up your RTMP encoder to the BoxCast system. Learn how to send an RTMP feed to BoxCast here. Once you have your RTMP encoder configured, now it is time to schedule a broadcast. See how it's done!
Streaming to Social Media
With BoxCast, you have the ability to stream to Facebook, Youtube, Periscope (Twitter), and any other RTMP destination. You can do this all at the same time. We have made this process as easy as possible. You simply add the integration in the settings area and then select which destination you want to go to while scheduling. Find out here!
Embedding on Your Website
Now that you have successfully tested, its time to show your service to the world! It's as easy as grabbing your code from the embed section and posting it on your website. If you use Sunday Streams GoPlayer, you will want to use our BoxCast.tv found in the embed section under Select Display Options. That will be a link to all your public broadcasts.
Audio and Video Podcasting
If you have made your services a podcast before BoxCast has you covered. Check out our Help Center article on how to get your broadcasts into podcast form in no time.
