The browser broadcaster is based on WebRTC. While the technology still has issues, it is reportedly working well on Chrome for Mac, Windows and Android.
We have not properly tested it yet in either Firefox, Safari or Opera and there is no proper support for the technology in Edge/IE.
One may also encounter connectivity issues due to NATting, UDP ports being blocked and other networking twists.
All in all, while this works great for many, it will just not work for some. We are slowly improving on it but given the underlying technology it will probably never be perfect.
Recommended you consider an RTMP broadcasting solution if it’s not working for your setup.March 16, 2020 at 3:08 am #10826yogaParticipant
I am testing your product via wordpress plugin. When I click Start browser broadcast, the popup window appears saying starting broadcast then nothing happens.
Have tried both Chrome Version 80.0.3987.132 and Edge 44.18362.449.0 on windows 10
Please advise next stepsMarch 17, 2020 at 10:43 am #10971adminKeymaster
In its current state, the web broadcasting does not work for every host/browser configuration out there. We are working to improve it and hoping to have an enhanced version of it some time during the summer. It will also work in Firefox and Safari.
Meanwhile, if not able to successfully stream from your browser please consider desktop alternatives like VMix, OBS, and mobile apps like BroadcastiX
