    I’m planning to do a Holiday Party Alex on December 17th. I’m looking talent and non-talent to come a sing, do poetry, tell jokes, etc for Christmas, Hannukkah and Kwanzaa celebrations. Want to use Smile time community!

    You can do a quick screenshare

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      Hello Delia , thank you for watching . How would you do the screenshare ?

      Avatar

      Delia Slucutt

      I talk about sites then quickly show people what I’m saying so they get a feel for the site. I don’t spend hours on it as I don’t think that is what livestream is really for. I’m just looking at ManyCa, which you mentioned in the comments – have you tried it? Is it good?

    Avatar

    Delia Slucutt

    not true!

    Avatar

    Gail Turner Brown

    Does FB get ticked that we are not really on FB. Would that be an issue later once FB integrates their multi person platform

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      Apparently not πŸ™‚ , which is good news

    Avatar

    Delia Slucutt

    Can you screenshare on smiletime?

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      No .. but you could using OBS , VMix or Manycam

      Avatar

      Delia Slucutt

      Cheers Steven Healey I use OBS at the moment and it seems to do a lot of what I need. I like the guest part of Smiletime though and the way FB comments are blown up. It’s nice but without screenshare I don’t think it’s for me at this stage.

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      I like the FB integration too πŸ™‚ I use Manycam when I need screenshare. Both OBS and manycam work well. I like the fact on the recordingthe screenshare is virtually full size

    Avatar

    Chris Ripka

    That integration has done a lot for my engagement…

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      True , it makes a broadcast into a show

    Avatar

    Gail Turner Brown

    Ok yeah I do that. I always test. One day it worked, the next day of interview, it didn’t

    Avatar

    Gail Turner Brown

    I have backup platforms, of course, but they don’t have the features ST has, and I’d rather stick to one specific platform if I can.

    Avatar

    Gail Turner Brown

    So Alex, what would you suggest going moving forward. Since my business model is interviews to build my business.

    I’m gonna watch you Guru … I’ll wait awhile

      Nor me πŸ™‚

    Avatar

    Gail Turner Brown

    Yeah Jenn, I want to do a Holiday Party with singing, poetry,, live jokes, but I don’t know if it would work.

    Avatar

    Mike Briercliffe

    When do you think any of these channels will be viable for non-technical audiences – for commercial webinars? are we weeks away, a few months away, or more than these?

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      They are becoming more reliable. The quality is improving. If you have a back up plan – go for it

    Avatar

    Bill Chagnon

    Many liked Blab. Why has that been so hard to duplicate?

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      Things have moved on since Blab . The features in Smiletime give better quality video and sound and then there is the FB integration

    Avatar

    Gail Turner Brown

    But I really prefer SMILETIME I just can’t get it to consistently know for sure that it will work.

    Avatar

    Gail Turner Brown

    Yeah. I switched over to BeLive from last Saturday.

    Gail Turner Brown

    Oooh Alex I need you!!

    Is Huzza the same way?

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      As David said Huzza is Tokbox .

      Avatar

      Ileane Smith

      Steven Healey yes that is what I meant, only I didn’t know how to spell “Tokbox” But I do now. πŸ™‚

      Avatar

      Ileane Smith

      I think it should be spelled #toxbox instead …

    Jon Upton

    The only person on Firetalks front page these days is Steven πŸ˜‰

    Avatar

    Ileane Smith

    If your guest is on iPhone you should use Belive – is that correct?

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      Yes at the moment

    Avatar

    Bill Chagnon

    Will I have to post a new url every time I go live?

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      No . Smiletime is fixed url

    Avatar

    Mike Briercliffe

    So – your opinion on BeLive vs Smiletime is what?

    Avatar

    Ileane Smith

    Bill Chagnon I think David Vaughan has a workaround for that.

    Avatar

    Bill Chagnon

    Can I stream to my website?

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      Yes, check with David for details

    Avatar

    Ileane Smith

    Mike Briercliffe yes you can broadcast to your Facebook page from Smiletime

    Avatar

    Ileane Smith

    btw – Steven sorry we didn’t connect over the weekend. My daughter did the BeLive.tv demo from her iPhone. I posted the video on YouTube.

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      I will check out the video . I was away in Oxford too . I will message you

    Avatar

    Mike Briercliffe

    so – I can stream this through a biz page, yes?

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      Yes .. business page streaming is straight forward

    Avatar

    Ileane Smith

    We can post links on Facebook because they are not afraid of them like the Smiletime folks are πŸ™‚

    Ileane Smith

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      Yes one live stream at a time is safer πŸ™‚

    Avatar

    Mike Briercliffe

    could be my bandwidth

    Bill Chagnon

    Watching on FB, no problem here.

    Avatar

    Jon Upton

    It’s OK here

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      Thank you Jon – this stopped the panic when i saw Mike’s comment

    Avatar

    Mike Briercliffe

    the FB window has frozen

      Avatar

      Steven Healey

      It happens occasionally as we know

    Avatar

    Mike Briercliffe
