Your stage has been improved! You will now see a picture-in-picture view when a video stream is focused. Here is an example of me with a focused screen share. All the non-focused streams will be in the picture-in-picture view on the lower left.
Updated Stage: Picture-in-picture
3, 2, 1... You're live!
Ever wondered if you're live yet? Now there's beautiful countdown to make that important moment extra clear :)
Unregister Yourself From an Event
Attendees can now unregister themselves from an event. This is the equivalent as if the host had unregistered them manually.
Ever made a mistake in your crowdcast that you wanted to fix? Well we've got something for you :)
2018: A Year in Review
In case you missed it, here are the biggest updates we launched in the last 12 months.
3 RTMP Studio upgrades
Our devs have been making some big changes on the back end and we're excited to share 3 upgrades to RTMP Studio:
- RTMP Studio now supports 1080p on both Pro and Business.
- We're transcoding all RTMP Studio streams to multiple bitrates to allow viewers on lower bandwidth connections to view the stream. So stream at 1080p without worrying if viewers have the bandwidth to watch.
- Finally, we now have instant availability of replays for RTMP Studio sessions.
We hope these updates make your livestreams on Crowdcast dramatically better. Try it out and let us know in the comments what you think. 🙌🏾
Introducing the ConvertKit Integration
Over and over when we ask what email marketing platform Crowdcast Creators use the most common answer is ConvertKit. Today we're excited to share that we've rolled out a deep integration with ConvertKit to create unique automations with your subscribers.
Unified social login
For new accounts moving forward, depending on what method you use to log in (email, facebook, twitter, google), if the email address for login method matches an existing email account, the logins will be unified and both be associated with the same user (you may receive a confirmation link to confirm that you own the email).
This avoids the scenario that happens sometimes when attendees:
- Join your event with a social login (example: Twitter)
- Come back to your event later and login with a different method (example: Facebook)
- End up with two accounts and in some cases register twice.
Now, when the email addresses match the above scenario will result in two different logins that both access the same user account, which results in much less confusion for attendees.
Fix frozen replays
Due to our recent upgrades replays (start streaming 4x faster, thumbnails, adaptive to multiple bitrates in realtime) some replays stalled out and weren't able to process (about 1%). We fixed all these broken ones and fixed the issue moving forward.
Network error causes controls to not show up
Occasionally, if there was a network error when downloading code for the host controls then the host would not have the ability to see the controls. We fixed this by preloading the code used for host controls at the beginning of the session so this will not happen.
No published changelogs yet.
Surely Crowdcast will start publishing changelogs very soon.
