The Streamer Module
The Streamer module is used to send a video stream over a local, wide or global network. Right click the module to open its popup menu. The following additional menu entries are available.
Starts streaming. Note that due to stream setup and buffering it may take up to 30 seconds for the video stream to becomes visible on the server. Streaming starts when the tally turns red.
Stops streaming. Due to buffering, it is good practice to stream at least 30 seconds extra before stopping the stream. This ensures all viewers have seen the end of the streamed video when watching via a server.
