    Blue Heron Cam

    It would be nice to have a live cam here on EoE...it gives us a "gathering place". I often think that any resort stream I put up is more a vehicle for us to get together than a window to WDW.

    I managed to test stream using Streamlabs to my YT channel. Any hints on the basic things I need to know? I did have the choice of streaming to my channel or EoE2. Thanks

    Streamlabs Trip experience...

    I thought I'd toss out a few notes about using the Streamlabs App on my recent trip. I did only a resort stream, no park streaming. Unfortunately, after a day or so, I switched to the CamOn Live app. Streamlabs did preform well overall after tuning back some settings. I settled on 720p, 24fps, 2500kbps bit rate. Max fps it could sustain was around 14 much of the time. I would chalk this up to WiFi congestion at the resort and it did seem to get better as folks came and went. During the day, for example, when more folks were at the parks, it seemed to do better. This a from a very passive observation! I switch to the CamOn app due to Streamlabs having issues focusing (through a window, especially at night) and showing a frequent and regular fuzziness. I might attribute this to the phone I was using, a Motorola Droid Turbo. Motorola phones have, occasionally, had issues with apps and how their cameras operate. I think this may be the issue with Streamlabs. The phone is also an older one now which may also contribute. I have an even older Motorola that Streamlabs immediately crashes on. Newer phones with newer OS levels may fair better I suppose.

    I think the only trick might be connecting to the EoE channel and back to your own. Once logged in to one, to get to the other, use the log out of Streamlabs option at the bottom of Settings then log back in. The EoE image in the corner that Mrhub has is a nice touch if you can swing it. I got it by clicking the EoE Icon on the top of the EoE Web page, saved it on my phone (press and hold on an android phone). Then, in Streamlabs, use the Editor option, then the arrow looking thing in the upper right. Hit the plus sign and Add Image. Pick the EoE image and size it and position it as you like. I also didn't like the chat showing in the video but, whatever works for you. In the editor option again, it can be turned off but selecting the Chatbox widget, the the 3 dots menu, click "showing on stream" to make it "Hidded on stream".

    I attended, watched and interacted. Great 1080p and sound quality. MrHub saw my chat and interacted. Of course he shared his Tiki collection. I sub'd too

    Question....what is the immediate solution for mobile streaming (for those of us who are not "techies")?

    I'll be using streamlabs to mobile stream on the upcoming visit and will report back if I experience any of these issues. @TiggerPiglet Back in Dec, I had issue with my Iphone 8 overheating while streaming via Youtube for extended periods, like streaming parades in direct sunlight.

    Added suggestions for Streamlabs video quality settings. May help avoid buffering and dropped sessions.

    On the down side, the camera has not microphone so, no sound. Not enough room in the case to fit one either! But it does seem to do a reasonable job streaming. I even ran it off a USB battery pack over night and still had capacity to go all day. Makes it very portable.

    Okay Streaming Gurus! Got logged in to StreamLab went to setting and chose my personal account on youtube not going to mess with the camera enhancements yet push the red button . . . I get What would you like to stream? Stream Games Stream IRL Hit Stream IRL finally scroll down to go live Clicked the camera on the YouTube page and this is what I got. Is this right? LOL I was streaming the tv since it is too ugly to go outside. I just got a copyright violation notice from YouTube . . . the Brewers are playing

    A quick note: In one of his test vids, Mrhub noted that the title on the stream is set...somewhere. The Streamlabs app doesn't seem to be able to manipulate it that I have found but, it can be changed! https://www.youtube.com/live_dashboard is the link to the dashboard for your selected account. It's under "Basic Info" under the stream view on that page. Select that account to work with under the account icon in the upper right. By the way, this is also where the stream link and key come from for other third party apps that don't link directly to an account channel. That is down at the bottom under "Encoder setup".

    I had issues at times streaming with my phone. My resort stream seemed to work pretty well with my ipad with the execption of shutting down because of the heat, which of course had nothing to do with Streamlabs, lol. When I mobiled stream, there were times where it said my bitrate should be at least 2500, where I had it 1500, so I adjusted that and did seem to work, but even with that higher bitrate I still had issues here and there.

    A Raspberry Pi Zero W camera. Inexpensive, flexible and portable. Uses the V2 camera module. Performs OK with the module and live streaming. I may take it along and experiment with it next trip!

    Ran a test with stream labs today. I was filming the Big boy celebration in Ogden Ut when everyone turned their phones on mine crashed. I lost the signal completely. Had tI finish up with the camera and save to the phone. I will try again Sunday when I attempt to chase said steam locomotive and see what happens.

    I know I'm late to the convo, but I read this and laughed because, you would think, with Florida weather being mostly unbearable, that this part of security checks would by their favorite! A reprieve from the heat every cooler they had to dig through! (Just a funny thought I had )

    I just did a Test on Eyes on Ears 5. I think I had the wrong bitrate, because it said low quality and it shut it self off. I got it going though

    What is the default bitrate in the Streamlabs app? The chart at the website below gets the two major components in one place: Bitrate/Upload Speed and Resolution Its a juggling act to a certain extend. I tend to shoot for at least 720p resolution on my streams. So I ran an upload test on cell only and got 1.9 Mbps upload bitrate. Cell service in my house isn't so grate. Only 2 out of 4 bars. From what I've read you should set the bitrate in an app to your bitrate upload speed minus about 20%. That puts me at 1.5 Mbps or 1500 kbps. that should allow 720p, or maybe even 1080p, streaming. Of course this is all moot if the app is able to variably adjust the bitrate on the fly https://help.mevo.com/hc/en-us/articles/360026528651

    Saw NH having issues sending a live stream. Some general ideas to help combat the low bandwidth messages in SL, or any other app. Under Settings/Broadcast: reduce video resolution. I think SL starts at 1080. 720 is half that but half the data. Lower still could help but the video quality will suffer the lower you go. Frame Rate: 30 or 24 fps. 15 is usable...mostly. Max video bit rate: SL Starts at 3500 I think. 2500 might help. Lower might help more at the cost of quality. The more people around the less data per person will be available. SL seems to be less forgiving. My guess is that the YouTube app and Facebook adjust themselves on the fly while SL doesn't seem to do that. There is an Audio setting. Reducing this could help but has less of an impact. A sample rate of 22050 is half the default. Turning off Record stereo might help. There is also a "Mixer ingest" option. It lists places, I think, the video is going to be sent on to. A closer location might help. In WDW, maybe Dallas or Washington DC could help.

    Apps need to be granted permissions these days to do the stuff they do. I know Android has tightened up the permissions on apps so that if an app needs to do something it must ask to be allowed to. Streamlabs will need access to store video and access, for example, phone/tablet storage, network or location perhaps so, it must ask for access. Without the access you will probably find that the app (this one and any other) won't do too much. Other apps, including YouTube, will require the same...not all are so up front about it.
  28. 2 points
    Yes but only if you use the Streamlabs app. You have to download the Streamlabs app, link your YouTube account and stream through that. It’s pretty easy to use.

    I downloaded Streamlabs to my phone and ipad for my trip next week. I didn't test to my personal account because it said that it will have access to that where it could delete things and see all my videos. Did anyone see that? I figure I'll just practice once I get the login info for the EoE channel.

    Yes the only reason I would use Streamlabs to do the resort streaming on my laptop is for Fiz to be able to embed to EOE like he could before.

    To clarify, as far as I know, and unless YT has changed again, the YT desktop interface should still work for streaming. Mobile is subject to the view limit. So, I guess, a PC/Laptop would not be considered a mobile device but a phone or tablet would be. Streamlabs on the desktop shouldn't be required but it might add some nice options. If you're into options (the EoE logo on the vid is nice)!

    Thanks dbeedle and Mrhub. Since we go to SSR tomorrow, I'll probably just use YT for resort streaming for now...I think I need more time to learn to use SL for desktop. I'll try to use SL for mobiles. I've tested on that.

    Looks like I forgot the IRL thing in my notes. I'll add that to the doc! And RE: copyright; YouTube is pretty picky about that! It usually doesn't like music I pick for vids!

    Ok, I did find it in the App! Start a stream. Upper right of the screen, three dots (on android, dunno about Apples). On the Bottom, "Edit Stream info". There is Title and Description there and a selection of who can watch.

    Looks good! I'll have to give it a proper shake down before my upcoming trip as I have used CamOn previously. Couple things I'm not sure of so far: How to select an EoE Channel rather than a personal channel. I imagine this will be pretty straight forward but my require defining an RTMP server. On an old phone, auto focus would seek all the time. Especially when shooting though glass. Easy enough to turn off. I also like to mount the phone outside...hope it doesn't rain! I'm curious if you noted any issues with focus? May have just been my old phone. Re: The logo, good idea! I think one with a transparent background would be nice (I pulled on off the page banner).

    It is not a value at all to use your points at a Non-DVC resort.

    Trip experience with this cam was good! Actually, better behaved that my phone which I used. I has a wide view and looked pretty good! (Used the first night from Bay Lake.)

    No worries Fiz. Seem like it's going to be a struggle until we get this figured out. The streaming from the resort using YouTube seemed to work great. I was mobile streaming using stream labs and an IPhone 8. Worked great up until I started getting this message . It worked a few times after the new steam event was made but stopped again. My own channel worked fine though.

    We can but Fiz figured out how to use Streamlabs and embed on the EOE site again like we used to with Ustream if you use the Streamlabs apps.
