We’re pleased to introduce our partnership with StreamShark!
StreamShark is a technology company with expertise in reliable video stream delivery for global reach. It excels at making the live streams of large scale, high profile events a massive success with viewers having an exceptional viewing experience.
We recently integrated with StreamShark’s API to make setting up a live event quick and easy. If you have an account with StreamShark, a Videon encoder/decoder, and a camera source, you have the tools to easily get your video content streaming live to your audience. Just set up your streams in your StreamShark account and the API integration between Videon’s devices and StreamShark’s platform will identify them in our user interface.
The StreamShark team is a fantastic group of highly knowledgeable live streaming experts, and we’re thrilled to be launching this new partnership. Here are some of the things we love about their platform:
- The full stream setup is done on a single page (see screenshot in Step 1 below)
- All of your streams can be managed/previewed from a single screen
- Your live streams are delivered through StreamShark’s patented multi-CDN technology which dynamically optimizes and unifies leading cloud and network infrastructure providers across the globe
Read on for step-by-step instructions for how to use the integration.
1. Set up your Live Stream in your StreamShark account (see sample screenshot below).
2. In the Videon Web UI, navigate to the Encoder Control screen and click “configure” under Output Settings
Once StreamShark is selected from the dropdown, you will see fields for API Username and Secret Key, the information for these is found on StreamShark.io (see step 3).
4. Log in to your StreamShark account and navigate to Account -> Account Details. Here is where you will find your API Username and associated Secret Key. Copy and paste into the respective fields in the Videon Web UI.
5. Once you’ve entered in your username and secret key in Videon’s web configuration, click “Get Stream List” and the “Stream List” dropdown will appear. This dropdown gives a list of live streams that have been created in your StreamShark account.
6. Once a stream is selected, RTMP Output will automatically flip ON. Click “OK” or “Apply” to save.
The names in the stream list include resolution and bitrate as configured in StreamShark, so that you can configure the encoding settings accordingly in Videon’s UI.
After a matter of seconds, your Videon device will connect to the selected stream and be available for you to view and share via StreamShark.io!
To refresh the list of streams that appear in the Stream List dropdown, simply reauthenticate with your StreamShark username and secret key and the most recent list of streams set up in your StreamShark account will appear.
