Intro to Live-Streaming
May 23, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT- $35.00
What You'll Do:
Zoom and Meet have become the norm for classes and gatherings these days. Often, the limited functionality of conferencing software doesn’t go far enough to help you get your ideas across and hold the attention of your audience. Dedicated livestream software lets you build scenes, share media, and truly present creatively on platforms your audience already uses like YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Zoom, and anything else that let’s you plug in a virtual camera. In exploring the packages available and techniques used to lead sessions from classes to family gatherings, we’ll build an interactive quiz show, suitable for a small group of friends. Once you’ve mastered the concepts used to make a fast-paced quiz, you’ll understand how to apply all of this to future classes and presentations that you offer on your own YouTube channel or here through Maker Campus!
Two livestream packages will be used in class: Ecamm Live, and OBS Studio. OBS works on multiple platforms and is completely free. Ecamm is a Mac-based application that has a free trial period that you can use during class. The real diehard tinkerer can even get OBS Studio running on a Raspberry Pi. It is not necessary to run Ecamm to take this class. It is recommended for those on Macs due to it’s less resource intensive requirements.
