As a broadcaster, you have the ability to change the broadcast settings during the live event. This will allow you to make on the fly adjustments to the broadcast if necessary.
To change the individual broadcast settings click on the Broadcasts tab in the menu. You'll see your current broadcast at the top of the screen. Click on Edit.
You can change lots of different things about your broadcast while it's live including its name, end time, visibility (public or private), you can add or remove destinations, and much more by clicking on various tabs.
There are even more options under the Advanced tab. Below is a quick explanation of each advanced setting, and an example of why you might want to change it.
Enable Live-Only: Enabling this option means viewers can only watch the broadcast while it is live. Disabling this option will record the broadcast and offer on-demand playback when the broadcast is over.
Request Automated Captioning When Recorded: This will create captions for your broadcast after your event is complete.
BoxCast Flow Control: An option available for BoxCast encoders in which you can set a delay on your stream in case of not-so-stellar internet.
Target Video Bitrate: The bitrate at which video data will be encoded and transmitted. By default, the BoxCaster will automatically detect your available bandwidth and make an intelligent selection. The video bitrate can be changed at any time during the broadcast if you are experiencing network issues that are affecting video quality. Note that hardcoding a video bitrate will only establish a ceiling for your video bitrates (i.e. the stream will not exceed that bitrate) but the box will still regulate bitrates up and down throughout the course of your broadcast in response to network conditions.
Target Audio Bitrate: The bitrate at which audio data will be encoded and transmitted. By default, the BoxCaster will automatically detect your available bandwidth and make an intelligent selection. Audio bitrates can be changed at any time during the broadcast (128k is best for Audio).
Audio Source: The source the BoxCaster should use for audio data. You can choose a specific source in the event you are using a separate line from your video.
Video Resolution: The maximum resolution at which the video data should be encoded. By default, the BoxCaster will use the largest size available based on the resolution of the detected video input.
High Frame Rate: Choose what fps you'd like to stream at
DSCP Value: DSCP, which stands for Differentiated Services Code Point, is a means of marking network communications in order to prioritize some types of traffic over others. By default, the BoxCaster will not use any special DSCP marking. Speak to your network administrator before changing this value. "Default" is the recommended setting.
