Before the event you would like to stream, you will need to set up your broadcast with BlueFrame.


       Note: To make the process on the event day easier, you can create all your broadcasts for the week/month/season in advance.


  • Go to vcloud.blueframetech.com, click on the “Media” tab and select “Broadcasts”
    • If you do not know what your login information, please give us a call at (855)812-2740 or email us at support.blueframetech.com


  • Next, click “Operations” near the top right corner and select “Create Broadcast”


  • On the “Create Broadcast” page, you will be able to fill in the information for your broadcast i.e. section, title, date, time, contact information etc. You are REQUIRED to fill in the Section, Title, Date/Time, and fill in Contact Information. 


  • Toward the middle of the page you will need to click “Alternate Sources” and select “RTMP” from the dropdown menu



  • Scroll to the bottom and click “Create"
    • If creating more than one broadcast, repeat steps 1-4 until all your broadcasts are created


  • If you wanted to set up all your football (for example) broadcasts from the season, you can use the “Clone Broadcasts” feature
    • After you click “Create” on your first broadcast (the one you want to clone), your screen will refresh and have the green banner at the top
    • To the right of the green banner, select the “Operations” button, then “Clone This Broadcast”
      • This will bring up a new window, the information in the form will appear the same with “(Backup)” in front of the title
      • You can now rename the title to correlate with another game in the season
      • Be sure to click “Alternate Sources” and reselect “RTMP”
      • Click “Create” and repeat the process until all your football broadcasts are created


  • Once the page refreshes, select “Click here to return” in the green banner at the top. This will take you to the “Manage Broadcasts” page


  • Find the broadcast which you are about to stream and click the magnifying glass icon on the right-hand side
    • Note: You must complete the following steps within one hour of your scheduled broadcast time. Otherwise, you will receive an authentication error message
    • If you are creating a new broadcast and trying to stream it immediately, you will need to wait 10 to 15 minutes for our servers to get ready for the broadcast


  • On the “Broadcast Details” page, you should find the RTMP information underneath the video player box
    • Leave this page open. You will need to copy and paste the RTMP host and stream name into GoCoder


  • Next, open GoCoder


  • Click the Settings Wheel in the upper right hand corner of the screen. 


  • Select Wowza Streaming Engine

 

  • Click the Host section, and input into the server field the randomly generated line of numbers and letters from the Host field on the vCloud Broadcast details page, plus the rtmp.blueframetech.com. Each event you stream will have a different string of numbers and letters, but the rtmp.blueframetech.com will stay the same every single time. Your Port field will always be 1935. 
    • EXAMPLE ONLY
      • Server - v3mg0w30.rtmp.blueframetech.com
      • Port - 1935


  • In the application field, input bf-s3plus into the Application blank (this will not change). In the Stream Name field, enter in your Stream Name from the broadcast details page. You can copy and paste this directly from the Broadcast Details page. The string of numbers and letters before the "&height" will change for each event that you stream through our system. 
    • EXAMPLE ONLY
      • Application - bf-s3plus-passthru
      • Stream Name - v3mg0w30?t=2f9c&height=720&rate=2500000&i=1
