Broadcasting:

Can I Set up a Broadcast That Will Go Live Later?

GoLiveWith allows you to broadcast via live stream or to record a broadcast and publish it at a later date. To publish at a specific time, select the “later” option to control exactly when your broadcast becomes available.

Does GoLiveWith Only Do Video?

No! We’re much more than just video. At GoLiveWith, you are always in control. Each time you broadcast, you can decide whether to share via streaming video, voice-only, or text-based chat.

What’s the Difference Between a Public And a Private Broadcast?

There are two types of broadcasts on GoLiveWith: public and private. Public broadcasts are visible to anyone on the Web. They are categorized by topic and easy for audiences to discover. Private broadcasts are available by invitation only. When you create the broadcast, you’ll get a link to share and invite followers. You can send that out through email, social media or any channel you like.

Can I Broadcast From My Mobile Device?

Broadcasting on GoLiveWith is done from a computer with a web cam. We find that stationary devices produce better quality video and better capture the audience. We think the Web deserves really great video broadcasting experiences, and right now that’s done better on desktops.

We do, however, understand that there are times when mobile broadcasting is necessary and we will be launching mobile apps for Apple iOS and Android soon. We want to make sure our audience doesn’t have a bad experience, so we’re busy testing these apps to make it as easy and enjoyable as possible.

Can I Download a Copy of My Broadcast?

Yes! We recommend downloading your video at the end of each broadcast. GoLiveWith makes this easy! Be sure to click on the link in your broadcast history, which allows you to download a copy to your desktop.

How Do I Name My Broadcast?

The broadcast title is the first field on the “Broadcast” form. To name your broadcast, just click on the field and start typing.

What Are the Categories For?

The ability to categorize your broadcasts is just of the unique features of GoLiveWith. To help audiences find your videos, we provide more than 350 categories for your channel. Once your channel is set up, you can select one category and one subcategory for each broadcast.

What If No Category Fits My Broadcast?

It is recommend that you select a category and/or subcategory that best fits your broadcast so that it’s easier for people to find you. However, If you’re unable to find a category you may select the checkbox that says “If you don’t see any suitable matches click here”. If you’d like to recommend a category or subcategory you may also contact us.
