3rd Party Broadcasters
We have made it simple to use popular 3rd party broadcasters with your TikiLIVE channel or network. Maybe you’ve switched to TikiLIVE from another broadcasting platform and you are comfortable with your current broadcaster. Perhaps you like the specific features that it has to offer and don’t want to give them up. Whatever the case, you have options with TikiLIVE. Choose from these popular broadcasters:
- Shadow-Technologies.TV Web Broadcaster
- Adobe’s Flash Media Live Encoder
- Telestream’s Wirecast
- VidBlaster Broadcast
- NewTek’s TriCaster
When logged into your broadcaster dashboard you’ll find the 3rd party broadcaster configurations under “Recording Settings”. Either download the configuration file (XML) and load it into the broadcaster of your choice or copy and paste the broadcasting profile data provided. If you require a different broadcaster than is on our list and interested in using, just ask! If it can stream RTMP, or UDP then we can add it to the list and you may use that too!
Create Unlimited Channels
Add unlimited HD or SD iPTV live streaming channels to your new broadcasting video portal. Channels may include professionally produced linear content or home grown reality shows. You can also add unlimited pre recorded videos or video on demand content (VOD).
Use the Shadow-Technologies.TV Channel Manager to arrange your media into a timeline and publish unlimited custom channels. Optionally ingest 3rd party videos from YouTube into your show lineup. Start Your Own Network with a Shadow-Technologies.TV Solution.
Broadcast Live on Facebook
Stream LIVE and VOD content on Facebook in HD. Facebook users click on the thumbnail of a channel or VOD’s posted link that will immediately launch the player inside the Facebook page. No embed codes needed for the broadcaster either, just copy/paste the URL of the content onto Facebook and be sure to set a thumbnail for the link – something that Facebook prompts you to do. When clicked, the thumbnail opens a player on the wall.
