Sharing Worship Events to a Worldwide Audience

Streaming has long been associated with worship outreach in America, the middle east and Africa. The UK and Europe are now following suit with the faithful viewing live and recorded worship events online via Facebook and YouTube channels. So what options are available, and can it be easily set up by volunteers? Record and Upload You can choose to record an event ahead of time and upload an MP4 video file to Facebook or YouTube. Most video is streamed at 720p so set your camera to record at this video standard.

Getting Started on YouTube Live

With the ever-growing popularity of web streaming and content, especially on YouTube and Twitch; the need for a high level production (or one that at least looks like it) is accelerating.  Just turning your webcam on won’t cut it anymore. You’re going to be up against a lot of competing content that looks professional. Essentially, you’re looking at a small-scale live production, where every aspect needs to be considered. So, where do you start? The majority of streamers already out there, most likely, will have started out with a webcam, routed through a CDN platform like OBS, which is free software that, as well as streaming, provides basic mixing features that allow them to create live productions. A basic enhancement is to stream direct from a professional camcorder or attach your existing camera to a Teradek VidiU Go or Datavideo streaming encoder.And, by all means, that’s where you should start too. But if your channel starts to grow and you pick up a decently sized viewer base, you may be able to start gaining revenue from your channel through video monetisation or subscriber donations. At this point, it’s definitely time to update your gear. Webcams are fine but, like TV, it’s a competitive market and subpar equipment and production value will leave you in the depths…Only to be overlooked by a bored viewer, aimlessly scrolling through YouTube.

How to turn your professional camera into a Webcam

With the current situation there has never been so much requirement for video conferencing using Skype, Zoom, Microsoft Teams or even Facetime. In the last couple of days, I’ve been asked by a couple of cameraman I know how they can use their fantastic kit for this purpose, as they are stuck at home for the next couple of months with thousands of pounds worth of cameras gathering dust. All these communication platforms running on PC or Mac can take an input from any webcam, but as good as modern webcams are, with their tiny sensors and limited microphones they can never compete with even the most basic professional camera systems.
