Larix Broadcaster Configuring

Larix Broadcaster is a freeware feature-rich application for live streaming from mobile devices. It supports simultaneous streaming to multiple destinations with dynamic orientation, adaptive bitrate, content records and other capabilities.

Step 1: Get stream settings

Once you register in CDNvideo and create a new resource, go to "Setup instructions" tab. Take "URL primary" and "Streams" fields content and copy them into a single string.

You’ll be redirected to the previous screen where you’ll see your new connection, with checkbox being checked, which means it will be used for streaming. You may add other destinations here if you need as Larix allows streaming to up to 3 destinations simultaneously.
