Wirecast software lets you produce live events with a camera, an internet connection, and a computer. Stream or record live internet shows, news or sporting events, concerts, church services, corporate meetings, lectures and much more. This tutorial shows you how to use Wirecast to broadcast through Veetle.
- Open Wirecast from your Start menu.
- Go into broadcast settings from the broadcast menu.
- Set the encoder preset to LAN - MPEG4.
- Click the edit button to the right of the encoder preset. Set the encoder to H.264. If your computer is very powerful, set the width and height to 1280 and 720, respectively, for the best quality. Otherwise, try 960 and 540. Leave all other settings with their defaults.
- Switch to the audio tab. The default "MPEG 4 Low Complexity AAC" encoder should be selected.
- Set the destination to "Built-in Streaming Server".
- Note the stream path. Your particular path may be different from this screenshot. You will need this path later.
- Start broadcasting by going to Broadcast > Start / Stop Broadcasting > Start All.
- You may want to save this Wirecast configuration. This allows you to skip all the previous steps. You can just open the file the next time you want to use Wirecast.
- Install VeetleForWirecast (for Windows) or VeetleForWirecast (OSX) (for Mac OS X).
- A shortcut for VeetleForWirecast will be placed on your desktop. Double click it.
- You will be prompted for the stream location. Enter the location which you noted in step 7 of configuring Wirecast.
- Go to Veetle's broadcast page. Choose "external" as your source.
- A preview of the Wirecast stream will appear. Verify that it is working. Click the blue "next" button when ready.
- You can optionally turn on a tape delay by opening the options panel and clicking the last switch.
- Click the "go on air" button to start your channel. After the countdown finishes, you will be given the link to your channel.
