"Live" Livestream -> Video from the Cloud during the break -> "Live" Livestream RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi
    I found no Information about an way to play during an Break an Video from an Azure Cloud Storage.
    I know there are some Protocols who support by Azure but I could not find any good explanation.
    The same for an Software who support that feature.

  • Hi Momo_German, yes it is possible to add a video during a live stream/broadcast. This can be done through the use of timed metadata embedded within the video. Azure Media Services provides support for the transport of timed metadata along with the media, from the ingest point of the live streaming channel to the client application. The SCTE-35 mode, gives you the ability to insert cue points into video(s) that is being lived streamed. You can learn more about it in this documentation.  Let us know if you have additional questions.

  • Are there more Infos how to do in practise?
    I read a lot about how it should work not how it work in the real world.
    What I read is that the use the protocol to "sync" the Time to start the "local" TV Station Program.
    In my case the Speaker end maybe 5Minutes before the Time or overtake for 10 Minutes.
    That mean the Break extend or even be shorter. What I looking for is something who I can say in realtime "now (or in X secounds) play Video in a loop" "" when the break are finish I want send a command where the switch back the the "live stream" from the conference.

    The point is in the conference room could something happened where a video from the cloud is a good think for backup. Like a power-outage or when the internet speed is getting to slow for streaming.

  • Have you already explored doing the switching at the source encoding platform?  Many high quality encoding apps on the market support the ability to switch to a file based video, image, custom slate, etc. on the fly during your live broadcast.  The best ones on the market are Telestream Wirecast and Switcher Studio (iOS app) in my opinion.  You can also use an open source free app like OBS Studio, which also supports the ability to switch to a loop of video and then return back to the live camera source feed. 

    We do not currently have a feature in the live cloud encoder to support video loop slates.  Also, if there is a complete loss of signal from the event, we are not currently able to automatically go into a 'slate image' mode and wait for the reconnect.   A complete power outage at the event would be fairly fatal to the live stream.  Loss of internet bandwidth can be recoverable typically, and you can prepare for that issue with multiple routes to the internet as well.

  • Don't search for SCTE-35. what you are looking for is an encoder that supports switching at the source encoder side. 



    Switcher Studio

  • Which one does MS Support?
    People from both Sites have no clues about that.
    I asked at telestream and obs and it seem that nobody use there Azure.

  • The steps you would need are:

    1. Install and setup Telestream Wirecast or OBS. You would start with a camera feed hooked up the Wirecast, for example.

    2. Follow the steps in the document here. You may find it easy to download and use on a PC to accomplish this.

    3. At the end of the above step you should be able to stream the camera feed through Media Services

    4. In the Wirecast docs (see page 12/13 of this for example) they show how you can switch the output RTMP feed between different sources. Before and after your live event, you could switch to a video file on the PC, for example.

  • Yes, that video is of a former colleague of ours who gave a well reviewed talk on SCTE-35. In your scenario, though, you do not need to deal with SCTE-35 markers.
