Once logged in with an Admin or Host with privileges account, you can access the show page to create shows. Bambuser offers two types of shows:
What is the difference? Test shows are a great way to test your production, broadcast, and network settings before going live, however, statistics for test shows are not tracked on your stats page. Watch this Bambuser tutorial which covers all the steps and questions on how to create a show.
2. Player preview - Test to go live!
The player preview CTA "OPEN PREVIEW" is a terrific tool for you to test how to stream, go live, and moderate because it isn't shared externally, giving you the freedom to test out whatever you want it to say.
However, the player preview does not include add-to-cart elements, and price, and can only showcase one language. See the GIF below.
3. How to moderate (chatting & showing products)
As an Administrator and Moderator, you can moderate many different elements of the broadcast while live. This is all managed through the Moderate tab in the Bambuser dashboard. On the show page, click on the Moderate in the right top corner. From there, you have a few different moderation options.
For your live show viewers, the chat is their way to interact with you in real-time. The chat feature enables your audience to ask questions, add comments and engage with your brand in a personal way.
If you go live with a pre-recorded show, it will start automatically on the set start time. without the need for a host to start it.
If you go live with external cameras, the stream will start and end from the third party platform. i.e. OBS or vMIX
The timezone will auto-populate based on where the user is located. Countdowns will appear in a viewers’ local time.
By selecting a start date for your show, you will populate the welcome screen shown to your viewers with a countdown. If you go live with a pre-recorded show, it will start automatically on the set start time without the need for a host.
You can customize your player's appearance for the specific show by adding a new player picture, changing the color of the button, adding an extra CTA & much more.
Bambuser offers three different streaming options;
The Bambuser App
Each offer unique features depending on your show and what kind of content you create. If you go live with a prerecorded show, it will start automatically on the set start time without the need for a host. If you go live with external cameras, the stream will start and end from the third party platform. I.e. OBS or vMIX.
Bambuser’s Social Media Multistream feature allows clients to go live to multiple platforms at once. It enables you to simultaneously stream your live shows across Facebook and YouTube, as well as via custom RTMP to any platform that provides a stream URL and stream key. But, only the 'raw' footage will be forwarded without the chat/like function and product highlights. It's the best way to skyrocket awareness and drive more traffic!
