Change camera direction
Tap the "rotate camera" icon to toggle between front- and back facing cameras. The live stream will not be interrupted with this action.
Turn on flashlight
For streaming in darker environments, tap the "flash" icon and the flashlight will be lit in continuous mode. Tap again and the light will be turned off.
Tap the "pencil" icon to set a title to the broadcast.
Zoom the video with two fingers directly on the screen.
The "Stream health" indicates how the live stream is performing. A stream health around 100%-70% indicates that the flow (frame-rate) of the video is good.
If the stream health falls below this range for a consistent period, it indicates congestion or data loss in the network and suggests the network may not be capable of providing a healthy live stream.
The local HD recording of the stream will not be affected by low stream health.
However please note, if the storage of the device runs out, an ongoing live broadcasting may stop with the risk of the recording not being saved to the camera roll.
All settings are pre-set and changes are generally not needed, certain circumstances may however require you to switch or enable a setting.
Log out - Shows which account you are currently logged in with. Click to log out.
High video quality - Enable this to potentially stream with a higher resolution, up to 720p. Otherwise it will be restricted to 540p in order to use less bandwidth.
High audio quality - When broadcasting over a poor network disabling this saves some bandwidth.
Talkback mix-in - When enabled, the incoming talkback audio is recorded into the live broadcast. If the "Record" setting is enabled, the incoming talkback audio will be included in this video file as well.
Record - Enables a locally stored HD version of the video for later uploading.
Geotagging - Location data will be sent to the Bambuser servers together with the video.
Capture sounds - Enable this to activate the sound that indicates a start of a broadcast or the click when capturing a photo.
