Key things to note:

  • If you are using a BoxCaster, it must be online to start a test broadcast.
  • If you are using RTMP, you can start a test broadcast at any time and you will still need to hit start streaming on your encoder after you have started the broadcast.
  • You can start a quick test broadcast from the BoxCast Dashboard or the BoxCast Broadcaster app.
