Can I stream to multiple channels?
Ideally, your school will have set up their own private YouTube channel for all teams to stream events to. Individual teams may also set up their own YouTube accounts for streaming purposes.
Can I add commentary to livestreams?
Yes! You can connect a microphone or audio setup by plugging a standard, 3.5mm audio cord into the Audio In port on the back of your Focus camera. If you stream directly to YouTube, the livestream will automatically have the audio.
If you send your Focus video feed to a broadcasting software, be sure to select the same Focus stream URL for your audio input to get the audio. You can also add additional audio sources, custom graphics and more with your broadcasting software.
Can I add sponsors to my livestream?
Hudl Focus will give schools the ability to stream any of their Focus recordings to a school-owned YouTube channel for free.
Hudl does not currently support advertising or subscription. We pass the video to YouTube for your audience to watch there, or wherever you embed the YouTube link.
Consult your broadcasting software provider to learn more about what's possible with their platform.
Can I use a different platform than YouTube to livestream?
You can use broadcasting software as long as it accepts network video source/IP feeds via RTMP.
