Adding Live Content

Content is set up via the Channels tab in the admin bar under the Customize & Control section. 

 

These instructions are specifically for live content that is NOT being streamed directly to Maestro. If you plan to stream to Maestro via an RTMP URL and Stream Key, please refer to this article

Content is set up via the Channels tab in the admin bar under the Customize & Control section. 

Schedule Content:

Logic: The scheduled video will play at the scheduled time for the duration set on the video (this is set when the video is added to the library). When the duration is up, the channel will default back to the Offline state.

  • Click Schedule Video under Scheduled This Week
  • Select the live video using the plus sign from your Library, or click Add Video in the top right
  • Set the Start Day/Time
  • Select if you’d like your video to repeat and how frequently (Weekly, Daily)
  • Click Add
  • Click Save and Publish to push changes live

Add a Twitch Livestream:

Logic: This section works for Twitch live videos only. Using Twitch's API, Maestro detects when the stream is live and automatically switches to the live video, and when the stream goes offline it automatically switches back to the Offline content.

  • Click Add Live Stream under the Twitch Live Streams section
  • Select video from Library or click Add Video to add a new video
  • Once the video is added, click Save and Publish to push changes live

Add Live video to TV Mode:

Logic: Adding a video in TV mode will keep that video active when it is both live and offline. When the video goes live from the source, it will appear on Maestro, and when it goes offline, the offline slate added to the video will appear as well.

  • Under the Offline section, click TV in the top right of the section
  • Click Add Video or Add Playlist 
    • If you already have a video added you’ll click Change Video and similarly if you already have a playlist selected you’ll click Change Playlist
  • Select video from Library using the plus sign or click Add Video
  • Click Save and Publish to push changes live
