Live Broadcast Alerts allow you to see the current health for all of your ongoing broadcasts. Via the Broadcasts tab, we display live updates for:

  • Upload speed from cameras

  • Status of production within Spiideo's cloud

  • Status of production of stream to external platform (For RTMP or SRT productions)

Stream status information is updated every minute automatically.

NOTE: This feature is available for Spiideo Play Pro customers

Where to access:

When broadcasts are live, navigate to your 'Broadcasts' tab in Spiideo Play:

Here you can see all broadcasts and view their health via the 'Status' column.

Broadcast Status Explained:

We list the following to display the health of your broadcast:

  • Green - Broadcast is healthy

  • Orange - Broadcast has a problem (requires attention)

  • Grey - Spiideo cannot gather information on broadcast

By hovering over the status symbol for each broadcast, you can get a quick preview of what is wrong with the ongoing broadcast:

The purpose of these warnings are as followed:

  • Camera upload:

    • This means the speed received by your cameras does not meet the required speed for live upload. Footage is being delayed in the cameras

    • You should investigate on the camera's local network to try and increase available bandwidth

  • Spiideo production:

    • The production of the broadcast in Spiideo's cloud is delayed, causing a delay in the broadcast arriving to viewers

    • This can be caused by slow upload from cameras

    • You should contact Spiideo support if no footage is being received by viewers, or if video is constantly buffering

  • External broadcast:

    • The production of the stream to your external broadcasting platform is delayed/not being received

    • This can be caused by slow upload from cameras, delay in processing within Spiideo's cloud or incorrect RTMP/SRT information

    • You should check the RTMP/SRT information and camera upload status
