To set up a live stream on a desktop an account has to be created on Jet-Stream. A Jet-stream account is easier to set up than an YouTube account with an active AdSense account. Jet-Stream offers different account options and recommends a Webcast account for events.
The pricing for a Webcast account is as follows:
Viewers per hour
SD 500Kbps quality
HD 1Mbps quality
Full HD 4Mbps quality
4K UHD quality
Choose the preferred quality, select the number of broadcast hours and the number per 100 viewers. Calculate the required webcast budget. The more viewers and hours, the lower the price gets. We advise you to contact Jet-Stream if you need help setting up your account.
Before you can start live streaming you need to download encoding software to set up your live stream. We recommend downloading Open Broadcaster Software. Useful information on how to use OBS can be found here.
