Livestream Block

Livestream Block

How to share, record, and even token-gate a Livestream on Bonfire.
To use this feature you must first download a broadcasting software like OBS Studio, StreamLabs or StreamElements.

Here’s the step-by-step:

  1. Go to Content > Livestream
  2. The first time you go live, you’ll need to setup your stream by giving it a name and description (optional)
  3. After setting up your stream, you’ll be given a Server URL and Sream Key. These credentials are how you’ll connect your Bonfire Stream to the broadcasting software of your choosing (e.g. OBS)
  4. To connect the broadcasting software or to Bonfire, you’ll be asked to input your Server URL and Stream Key
  5. Copy-paste these credentials from your dashboard, which you can find beneath your stream in the Livestream tab
  1. Now that you’ve connected the broadcasting software to Bonfire, you can start streaming. Use software to control the stream and click Start Streaming once you’re ready
  2. Go back to Bonfire to view your stream (this might take a minute to load)
You have the option to change the name and description of your Stream channel, you can also record and token-gate it
  1. Go to Studio > Pages choose a page or create a new one and then go Back to Studio Menu > Blocks and drag and drop a Livestream block into the page
  2. Add any block to your page to customize it and don’t forget to fill out your page settings
  3. Click Publish

Pro Tip: If your community uses Discord, you can embed a Discord channel from your server beneath your livestream, to add traditional livestream chat functionality for your token-gated stream. This functionality is offered via a popular Discord bot called WidgetBot - see our guide here to learn more.
