Before adding a new live stream, always make sure that you really need one. Our streams are reusable, so most of the time, you can reuse that stream over and over without having to create a new one. You may, however, want to create a new stream if you need a different embed code than the one you already have, or need to stream two different streams simultaneously.
First, you will log into your account. Click on Live Monitor in the menu on the left of your screen. Click on the drop down at the top of the page, and click on New Live Stream.
You can also create a new live stream by using the quick add buttons at any time in the dashboard.
A window will slide out, and you will be asked to create a unique title and password. You can also customize your stream by adding an image or other media, applying security settings, and making adjustments to the player.
When you're finished, hit Create.
It will give you a message that your stream is provisioning. It takes approximately two hours to provision, and then your stream will be ready to go! You can check to see if it's ready, and how much time it has left, by clicking on the stream in the Live Monitor.
While you're waiting for your stream to provision, you can set up your encoder with your new stream settings and embed your stream onto your website. Just hit that Edit button on the right of the screen and it'll give you all of the information that you need!
Once you're all set up, and your stream is finished provisioning, you can run a test stream and view everything in the Live Monitor.
