1. Launch Larix Broadcaster from the homescreen.
2. Navigate to the setting panel
Click on the gear icon to access the app settings.
3. Navigate to Connections
4. Add a new connection by tapping the “+” icon in the top-right corner of your screen
5. Fill up the first two text field with the information provided by the Livescale Dashboard
- The name of your source can be anything, we opted for Livescale.
- The RTMP address is provided by the Livescale Dashboard once the video engine is launched.
- Once the RTMP address has been pasted, add '/stream' (without ' ') to the end of the URL to specify the stream key. Your URL should look something like: rtmp://placeholder.livescale.tv/live/stream
6. Save your connection and navigate back to the settings panel
7. Click on “Capture and Encoding” to setup the audio and video specifications
- Make sure “Microphone” and “Camera” access are toggled on
- Toggle “Record Stream” on, if you want to keep a local copy of your livestream
8. Setup the video specifications by clicking on “Video”
- We recommend 1280×720 with a framerate of 30fps and a bitrate of 4000kbps
- You may adjust the settings to your liking but beware of the limitation of your own network when choosing a higher resolution or bitrate.
9. Setup the audio specifications by clicking on “Audio”
- We recommend leaving everything to “Auto” unless you know what you’re doing.
- Setting the channel count to “Mono” ensures that the sound always comes from the same place rather than from the sides.
