Live Switchboard

Live Switchboard

The live switchboard allows you to create an output stream that can switch between any number of live streams or channels. Use the switchboard to create a live stream out of multiple streams from different presenters, or make sure your live stream never goes down, by having a channel as the lowest priority item.

To get started, go to the switchboard list in the control panel. Select an application, and enter the name you want the stream to play out on. Then you can start adding streams as sources. Order them based on the priority you want. When ever a stream in the switchboard's source list connects, if that stream is higher priority that the currently playing stream, the newly published stream will take over. When the currently playing stream goes away, the switchboard will switch to the next highest stream in the list.

When making changes to the switchboard, check the "Recheck list" box if you want the changes to take effect.
