How to Set Up a Live Internet Broadcast

It isn’t as tough as many people believe to broadcast live content over the Internet. It’s actually quite simple. All you’ll need is an audio or video source, a mechanism to deliver the audio or video to the PC, a free Microsoft software tool, and enough upload bandwidth to cover the content’s broadcast.

I’ll try to teach you everything you need to know about broadcasting your material over the Internet in this tutorial. I’ll primarily demonstrate audio, but as you proceed through this tutorial, you’ll discover how simple it is to create video. The kora live provide you live broadcast of events.

Because this is a text-only instruction, you’ll want to download the free Microsoft programme and go over the configuration while you read it. But don’t get too worked up. It’s very simple to accomplish. Don’t be put off by the length of this tutorial. The benefits of having your live broadcast up and running should encourage you to keep going.

The only element of this instruction that is a little bit hard has to do with your firewall. Because there are so many firewalls out there, I’m going to take a very generic approach to teaching you what you need to do. Later in the tutorial, I’ll go over this in further detail.

Let’s Get Started

First and foremost. You must first configure your audio source. I’m utilising a radio scanner to broadcast Live Police from a radio scanner in this example.

The radio scanner is connected to my PC’s sound card through a wire that is about 2 metres (7 feet) long and has a 3.5mm mono socket on both ends. Of course, the cable length is entirely up to you. Note that if you’re broadcasting music, you should use a cable with stereo plugs rather than mono plugs. You should also check that the plugs on the cable match the audio device; certain devices may utilise a 2.5mm plug rather than a 3.5mm plug. If you’re solely broadcasting voice, mono plugs are preferable because they ensure that the listener hears sound from both speakers.

Connect one end of the cable to the headphone jack on your audio device, and the other end to the Microphone jack on your computer’s sound card.

Go to the Microsoft website and download Windows Media Encoder 9. It’s completely free. It’s about 9.5MB in size. The software can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.

Start the app after you’ve finished installing it. The setup wizard will be shown to you. Select Broadcast a Live Event from the drop-down menu and click OK.

You’ll now be presented with a window where you may select your audio and/or video source. If you were setting up video, you’d leave both boxes checked; however, we’re only doing audio in this case, so uncheck the video option. Use the drop down box under the audio option to select your sound card from the list. Then select Configure from the drop-down menu.
