Knowledge Base Live Flash Streaming Service
Help Center
back Adventist Church Connect streaming will allow you to share your live events with people around the world directly from your website. Our video stream serves a dedicated flash stream for website visitors, and a dedicated iOS mobile device friendly stream. With one encoder session, you are able to serve all of your audience in all platforms. Your media can be embedded in a website, and streamed to mobile devices.

We use a Content Delivery Network (CDN) with points of presence around the globe. Your video message will be easily received no matter how close or far your audience is located from you. This means that we do not use one server to send out the media to your audience, but a network of servers with excellent scalability.

Getting Started is Easy!

  After you sign-up for this service, we will send you some materials that will help you get started:
  1. A welcome email with your streaming account user name and password. These credentials are needed to authenticate the encoder to the server.
  2. An encoder profile as an attachment, which will configure your encoder with the proper server connection settings.
  3. A special token to be placed onto your website that gennerates an embedded Live Stream Player and iOS link on the page where the token is placed.
There is a one-time setup fee of $85 to configure the server and create the above resources custom to your new stream.
