BeLive.tv have just released updates and so Clare Evans , David Vaughan and I decided to take a look.

Thank you to everyone who watched and commented live and thank to you if you are watching the replay.

There is now a show feel and as host you can select from five screen layouts and flip between them at the click of a button.Switch between multiple views of host, guest, picture in picture.

You can be a guest from your Iphone using the Belive.tv app

Both host and viewer have customisable lower thirds without using external software so you can display names etc at the bottom of the screen. You can also switch them off too

There is a back channel for private host guest chat.

All of this from within the Belive.tv page 🙂 Well done Team Belive.tv

    The benefit for me with the Spark Digital is the fact it works with the iPad and iPhone too

    Jon Upton

    £240 is an Amazon price

    Clare Evans

    That’s a really nice feature and really useful when interacting with viewers

    Good article for those wanting to know more about how to determine if you have enough bandwidth for live streaming: http://www.dacast.com/blog/bandwidth-requirements-streaming-live-video/

    A question for David – why did you change from the Blue to the Spark – and have you used it with an iPhone?

    Like the comment spotlight feature… works nice on Smiletime but ‘only’ in Smiletime so doesn’t show on Facebook..

    Avatar

    Clare Evans

    Ok – that could be my issue. Macbook rather than an iMac. Got Steven’s recommendation for an external camera.

    Avatar

    Clare Evans

    Time of day can make a real difference to speeds as well.

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      Tell me about it

    Avatar

    Daniel Mayer

    As it seems it’s not a connection issue, We investigate an issue with some iMAC’s using the internal camera, the current way to avoid that is using an external webcam, and yes 1MB up should be OK

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      Good point , Clare was using internal camera

    Nèil Dewsön-Smyth

    0.79 up

    Leland Best

    1 meg up is hardly enough to broadcast HD video/audio streams

    Avatar

    Clare Evans

    More like 4mb in a lot of places still!

    We have Fibre Optics in the village now but would mean me moving to Vodafone and their tremendous customer service [/sarcasm]

    Good point David, I attempted a Skype client call when away from my usual location which was really slow and then realised that my friend and her daughter where both online as well!

    Leland Best

    Running 4 cell phones, Roku, syncing software, wifi home equipment all rob the little bits of bandwidth

    Avatar

    Clare Evans

    Is that in your book Steven? About recommended speeds. It’s potentially important.

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      It will be in the next edition

    Leland Best

    Ok, now I’m jealous of the blokes in the UK getting Gigabit internet 🙂

    Avatar

    Clare Evans

    If you drop out of/close the session it ends the call and you can’t rejoin … at least I couldn’t earlier.

    Avatar

    Leland Best

    Agreed Barb, the glitching we’re seeing is pretty obvious that it’s not bandwidth issues.

    Avatar

    Gail Turner Brown

    is the link always the same, or different each time? Can you get a link ahead of time?

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      You can schedule ahead of time , the broadcast appears in your profile page and you can start when you want

    Avatar

    Barb Tomlin

    Good to see you here, Leland. I personally do not agree that the freezing is always bandwidth. I believe programming by third party app developers has something to do with it, too. 😉

    I’ve seen a LOT of buggy video after this latest update. Freezing of guests between camera switching is very apparent.

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      it should improve over time

    Avatar

    David Vaughan

    So has it become easier to switch out guests who come on?

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      Looks like it has . First guest closes tab , second guest clicks guest link

    Avatar

    Barb Tomlin

    It’s not broadband on my end at all. FWIW.

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      Thank you Barb, we will seek an answer

    Avatar

    Barb Tomlin

    I’m finding that with both on-screen. Checking my connection.

    Avatar

    Gail Turner Brown

    So is it a broadband thing or is it a tech thing with BeLive?

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      Good question , there are several factors but we do not have answer yet

    Avatar

    Barb Tomlin

    Thanks, Gail. I’m experiencing a lot of that.

    Gail Turner Brown

    Yes she’s frozen on my end too

    Clare is frozen on screen for me
