You will need a Streambox Live account. If you are a first time user, or have just installed a new Encoder, then when you click ‘Use w/Cloud’ a ‘Metadata is Not Set for Encoder’ dialog will be displayed
If you have an account, you can enter the Group name and a Contributor name. If you do not have an account, you should click on the ‘Create Account’ button.
When you click the ‘Create Account’ button the following Registration Form appears. Do not omit the ‘Contact Email’ since that is the only way we can keep you up‐to‐date on updates.
Once the account is created the following dialog window will open.
Click ‘Go to Streambox Live here’ to open the Streambox Live page (inside red outline). Alternatively, and here after, you enter ‘live.streambox.com’ in your web browser.
NOTE: At this point, go back to the Metadata for Encoder window and enter your Username for Group and provide any name for Contributor. After you click ‘OK’ you should be back in the Encoder window.
On the log‐in page enter your Username and Password and click the ‘Log In’ buton. You should now be in the Streambox Cloud. Spend a few minutes get to know the ‘Live Channel’ interface.
As we move along, many of the steps you are taking are one‐time only to get your Live Channel set for 360 streaming to YouTube. Onward.
Switch to the ‘Advanced Mode’ from the navigation menu. From the ‘Advanced Mode’ page, click on ‘Accounts’ from the menu bar (image below).
On the Account Information page, make sure that ‘Live Streaming: Enabled, Publish New Streams, and Full HD are all checked.
Though optional, it is a good practice to also provide First Name, Last Name, and Email so you can be notified of updates and server status. Click ‘Save’. Go to next page→ Streambox® 360 Live Streaming Now click on ‘Decoders’ in the menu bar to open the Decoders page. This is where you setup decoders which are destination routes.
You will notice that a default Live Channel decoder was created for you (streamboxvr360 in this case).
We need to setup this decoder so click ‘Edit’ – the Edit Decoder page.
This opens two fields, Server URL and Stream Key. These respectively are the address and keys to your site on YouTube. Later, we will cover how to obtain these values from YouTube. The blowup demonstrates how this might appear with real values.
For 360 live streaming set Type to ‘Live Streaming Channel’ and lower down on the form, make sure ‘Enable HD Streaming’ is checked. All other settings can be the same. Of course, ‘Name’ will reflect the account name which will be unique to you. You may change Name if you desire.
You may also choose to create a new Decoder – click ‘Add Decoder’ and fill in the same form as above.
