Belive.tv Making Good Connections on Facebook Live

Share

Belive.tv is a great way to broadcast live on Facebook to make new connections and strengthen ties with friends.

There are ways that you can improve the experience for your guests , your viewers and yourself.

Before you broadcast live check the following.

Network Speed

Use Speedtest.net http://www.speedtest.net/

The important figure is upload speed .

The minimum upload speed is 1.5 . If you have lower than that then the video and sound quality will fluctuate.

 

Mobile

If your guest is connecting to Belive via mobile then their connection and signal may be subject to fluctuation . This will impact the quality of the video.

Both your internet speed and your guests are important .

Your guest can have a beautiful clear picture with great sound whilst yours may be acceptable but not great. Simply their broadband connection is better then yours.

You as host may have a beautiful clear picture with great sound whilst your guest does not , your broadband connection is better than theirs.

Hopefully most of the time you and your guest(s) will have equally good connections.

Before a Show

1 Restart your computer . This is sound advice – if you have been running your computer for hours before the broadcast then a number of processes you do not need when broadcasting may be running.

2 Start Chrome

3 Open a tab  for Belive.tv , locate and enter your show .

4 Open Facebook Messenger (or similar) to stay in contact with guests before they join the show.

Everything you need to broadcast is on the Belive.tv screen.

You may open a Facebook tab to check that you are live on Facebook after you start the show , however remember there are transmission/processing delays and the video on Facebook will be behind your live show. I always close the tab after checking . Leaving it open means your desktop is performing unnecessary processing.

Please invite your guest into the show 15-20 minutes before you go live. Then you can check audio and video , go through the agenda and make everyone comfortable.

Connecting camera and microphone

Belive.tv can use any camera or microphone that you have installed on your desktop .

If your system is not displaying your camera or microphone – Belive.tv will not see it and cannot use it.

On the left you can see my microphone choices , on the right connecting camera and microphone on Belive . You must click the cog top right BEFORE you press [Connect Camera] and join the show.

 

If you are the host of the show , you can re-select your camera and microphone without leaving the show.

 



If you cannot see all three buttons in Belive.tv then please make sure that Chrome is up to date , clear your cache and try again.

If the guest has a problem then ask them to refresh their browser and re-connect camera and microphone

Note Using an external microphone will improve both the quality of the sound and the syncing between video and audio. Remember that many people listen to a live broadcast whilst looking at another page , sound is important . On the replay good sound is crucial , viewers will accept reasonable quality video but if the sound is poor (crackly) then they will not watch.

This is the internet at it’s best

Belive.tv makes broadcasting easy to do . Create your show , invite your guest and go live.

This is amazing given the complexity of the underlying technology.

Just think what is happening

Your camera and microphone are broadcasting . Your video and sound travel on the internet separately and are re combined by Belive and Facebook.
Your guests  camera and microphone are broadcasting . Their video and sound travel on the internet separately and are re combined by Belive and Facebook.

If you have two guests then there are six feeds (video + audio) travelling the internet. On Talk Show when you have guests in the lobby then their video and audio feeds are being processed too.

Belive.tv brings together all the feeds so you can see them on the Belive.tv screen

The resulting image is then transmitted to Facebook using the display you have chosen in your output panel.

Belive then reads the Facebook comments in real time and displays them on the Belive Production Centre. You can feature the comments on screen

You can share pictures from your Facebook albums

You can share your desktop.

Now we can understand how much organisation and processing takes place in each and every show .

You can sign up for a 14 day free trial here


A simple browser refresh will clear most problems when broadcasting.

Repurpose.io with Hani Mourra – automatically transfer your Facebook videos to Youtube & Soundcloud

Share

This was Hani Mourra and Steven Healey talking about Repurpose.io

In a lively session Hani answered questions on how you can automatically transfer your Facebook videos to Youtube , Soundcloud, Dropbox and Google Drive.

I have been using the software for 5 weeks and as I do 6 to 8 videos per week it saves me time and improves my own workflow.

You have created awesome content on Facebook using video. I have too 🙂

Does the story stop there or can you take the video and show it to a wider audience.

I have downloaded them and then uploaded them to Youtube and it is a laborious, time consuming task.

What if there was an application that could do this and more ?

Since I have started using ‘Repurpose’ I have been blown away by how powerful the system is. ‘Repurpose’ gives our live videos a second life as we can use them to reach an even wider audience.

Since the moment I started using it I have saved hours each and every week.

Would you like to be interviewed on Facebook Live ? #Belive

Share

Use Live Video to Promote Your Product or Service . Interviews last between 15 to 30 minutes and are broadcast on your Facebook Business page if you wish.

You supply the first three questions and they form the basis of the interview. We can practice the day before so that you have your chance to familiarise yourself with the process and check out your camera and sound.

I have conducted over 90 interviews over the last year, meeting interesting people from around the globe and have made many new friends !!

Social media is the place to market your services and goods.

Interacting on social networks builds rapport, you become known for sharing your expertise and by helping others they are more likely to listen when you have something to say.The most immediate impact on these networks is via video.

Belive TV gives you additional resources when you go live and I will show you how the maximise the potential of your live broadcasting.

Broadcasting with Belive is fun and a great experience for show host, guest and audience.

The ability to feature audience comments on screen and talk about them transforms viewers into participants. People become involved in the show experience and as host you can publicise their profiles, questions and comments giving them free marketing.

This is the first episode of a joint venture between myself and Leland Best. I am based in Wiltshire England and Leland is in Michigan USA .

Leland and I first connected on Blab.im , enjoyed each others company and created shows together.

We decided that we should launch ‘Across the Pond’ to share news and stories from both sides of the Atlantic.

We start with serious topics of the day then progress through areas which unite our two countries and explore social topics in a light hearted way.

We explored the British EU vote scheduled for Thursday and I tried to explain why the vote was taking place .

Leland shared his views on the US Election and the people currently involved in the run up to Novembers election.

The show was broadcast on FireTalk which we selected for the video quality and stability.

Blab.im Closes . The alternative sites you can try

Share

Blab closed on August 12th 2016

There will I think be fond memories of Blab for many of us, they introduced us to live video and for the most part got everything right.We have so much to thank them for , not the least of which is building a community which will live on in Facebook groups.

One door closes and others  are OPEN

We now have to look for new sites which offer similar facilities.

There are at least three platforms to consider Firetalk , Huzza.io and Crowdcast.io .

We have moved our shows to Firetalk and I use Huzza to broadcast to Facebook Live

    Should the British Parliament Vote to REMAIN in the EU ? #Brexit

    Share

    On Thursday 23rd June there was a referendum in Great Britain and overall the vote to Leave the EU was taken by 52% of voters.

    This is a very small majority to decide such an important issue.

    There has been no dancing in the streets , no parties . nobody shouting from the rooftops that GB plans to leave the EU.

    The referendum was only advisory and does not of itself trigger Brexit , only Parliament can decide by voting in the House of Commons in the coming days.

    People who woke up on Friday morning were genuinely shocked that the majority had voted to Leave the EU , even those who had voted leave were bemused at the folly of it all.

    The people who voted Leave did so on false information given to them by the Leave Campaign

    Labour MP David Lammy Tweeted lammy

     

    Now let’s look at the voting as reported by the BBC

    Ages

    As you can see those under the age of 45 voted to REMAIN . The overall decision is against their wishes. These people are the future of Great Britain , they saw themselves staying in the EU .

    They have no desire to leave.

    The people of Scotland voted to remain by 62% to 38% . They want to remain in the EU . Wheels are being put in motion which could see Scotland vote for Independence for a second time. Having been let down by the politicians in Westminster they could indeed vote for Independence and then apply to join the EU .

    We are now hearing that some of the ‘facts’ and promises made by the Leave campaign may be illusory .

    350-million

    As I write this post our Prime Minister has resigned and will step down in October and the aftershocks are being felt around the world.

    Background to the vote and the aftermath was discussed by the ‘Blabbing for Britain’ last Friday .

    Across the Pond with Leland Best and Steven Healey on #FireTalk

    Share

    This is the first episode of a joint venture between myself and Leland Best. I am based in Wiltshire England and Leland is in Michigan USA .

    Leland and I first connected on Blab,im , enjoyed each others company and created shows together.

    We decided that we should launch ‘Across the Pond’ to share news and stories from both sides of the Atlantic.

    We start with serious topics of the day then progress through areas which unite our two countries and explored social topics in a light hearted way.

    We explored the British EU vote scheduled for Thursday and I tried to explain why the vote was taking place .

    Leland shared his views on the US Election and the people currently involved in the run up to November’s election.

    We enjoyed chatting about and highlighting some of the differences between our countries as seen from the British point of view , which was definitely tongue in cheek .

    The show was broadcast on FireTalk which we selected for the video quality and stability.

    https://firetalk.com/events/SJWRnr24

    Leland was using Vmix to broadcast

    Enjoy the replay

    Leland hosts BCBLIve bcb-logo-2016-2

    BCB Live! was born out of my desire to help others get their message out to those that need or want to hear it. In a modern world of technical advance and the push to bring internet access to the entire planet, it has become obvious to me that everyone has a right to be heard.

    Most people would have you believe that you need all kinds of high end equipment in order to broadcast out to the world, when in fact you can do so on even a very “shoestring” type of budget.

    Let me show you how you can enter the live streaming community, build your very own broadcasting network on the internet so that you can build out a brand for yourself or your company and take your business to heights you never imagined!

    Wiltshire Business Club – Member Interview with Tim Coe

    Share

    In our monthly series of interviews with Wiltshire Business Club members I am looking forward to chatting with Tim Coe .

    Tim is the author of ‘Your Utterly Seductive Proposal‘.

    Every business wants more new clients followed by long-term happy clients. I’m sure you’re no different.

    Business is about standing out , not blending in

    Tim’s aims for his clients are simple – get more new clients and keep old clients happy. Standing-out and following-up are not new concepts, but who actually pays serious attention to these key areas? With eye-catching branding, promotions, wording, design and imagery that is discussable, unforgettable, distinctive and unique it’s easy to become the talk of the town [if you want to]. Tim Coe is author of ‘Your Utterly Seductive Proposal’ and will discuss all things marketing with me on Thursday evening …….

    Make your Social Media Count with Lilach Bullock

    Share

    Lilach and I have known each other over 10 years and it was a pleasure to finally meet on Blab.

    Over the course of an enjoyable informative chat Lilach shared some of the ways she Makes Social Media Count for her clients around the globe.

    We were joined by Nicola Gaughan and an engaged audience

    Thank you to everyone who watched live , enjoy the replay !!

    Lilach says

    If your social media isn’t adding to your business – adding profile, reach, leads, sales, then stop what you’re doing. Because, you’re doing it wrong.

    Social media done right can open up those opportunities for you. Done wrong and it drains your time, energy and resources – and can be pretty stressy too..

    Want to build connections, generate leads and sales with social media? Great! But, social media stinks, doesn’t it? Yep, it sure does – if you’ve tried it and not got the results you wanted, or you feel overwhelmed with where to start or how to get it all done.

    I get rid of the overwhelm, the hassle, the time suck and the endless posting and tweeting with no results. Because. Results. Count. And, quite frankly, let’s not dress this up – that’s what you are interested in, isn’t it?

    Now, let’s get one thing straight – I work with solo entrepreneurs, small and medium sized enterprises and charities which are doing fabulous work and want to make a difference in this world.

    Helping aspiring authors get their books out of their heads and into the world

    Share

    Mindy Gibbins-Klein and I have known each other over 10 years and she has helped many aspiring authors to publish their books.

    Mindy is currently expanding her business by using Vmboom to fund raise (see https://www.vmbvoom.com/pitches/the-book-midwife )

    We will be discussing the fundraising and how you can get your own book published

    You can watch the replay on Youtube

    Mindy says

    2.87 billion people want to write a book, but 2.58 billion of them will never do it, without the guidance and support of The Book Midwife.
    At The Book Midwife, we help aspiring authors get their books out of their heads and into the world.

    Most people who want to write a book never even start. They don’t know where to start or how to start. They have massive self-doubt about their ability to write a book, and they don’t know if their idea is any good. Some people start writing a book, but never get to the finish line. That self-doubt creeps in, they get lost or run out of ideas, or life just gets in the way.

    May Mindy
