It’s important to understand some new terms in order to get the best out of your experience with Producer in Media Studio.
Video Sources: The means of ingesting live video via RTMP or HLS into Producer.
A source needs to be created before you are able to ingest video and broadcast live on Twitter. There is no limit to the number of sources that can be created, but we recommend reusing one or more sources in your account to simplify your broadcasting experience.
If you have previously created a source within Periscope Producer, you may see it within your Media Studio source list. (If you’re a SnappyTV user, think of the source as a Channel.)
Broadcast: The live video entity on Twitter.
Broadcasts are how most people on Twitter will be viewing your live video. Follow all instructions below on creating a source and pushing video to your source, in order to successfully go live to Twitter with your broadcast.
Don’t forget to ensure you are first viewing Producer by clicking on the Producer button within the top navigation bar.
