Re: Public Link for Webcasting System?

Thanks for the replies and info. Having to create a church account if you are a non-member would be a hurdle a lot of people wouldn't make the effort to cross in my opinion. I see from the forum that an update is coming that will have public link capability. Should be a great improvement for this us...

Re: Broadcasting Sunday School

Now with YouTube unblocked in the meetinghouses I was told that the firewire allows YouTube, but enforces "Safe Search" which can be a problem for live streaming because the system does not know the content of the live stream and will sometimes block it. Not really sure if this is true, b...

Public Link for Webcasting System?

We've had a couple recent deaths in our stake and the Sake President has requested that we webcast the funerals so that family and friends can view the funeral without gathering at the building during this Covid 19 situation. One limitation of the Church's webcast system is that you seem to need a c...

Re: Can't get OBS working with Webcast 3.0

I've been successful with a few tests recently. My confidence in the webcast system is increasing. May attempt to use it for the next stake conference.

Re: YouTube is out

I finally got an official answer during a phone call with HQ. YouTube will remain unblocked however the church firewall enforced YouTube’s safe-search protocol which gives unreliable results for live-streams. The system can’t detect the content of a live stream so sometimes it will just block it com...

Re: OBS Studio

Just now tested OBS with the church's system and it worked fine.


I'll have to do more testing. When I tried it OBS would say it was connecting and then almost immediately disconnect and attempt to connect again, and then fail. Are the bitrate settings strict?
