So you're about to go live in Crowdcast and want to make sure your video and audio are as smooth as butter. You're in the right place, just follow these steps. :)

1. Use a modern browser

Crowdcast is supported on the latest browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Android browsers. Safari is view only, broadcasting isn't supported just yet. 

All things equal, Google Chrome tends to work best.

2. Have a strong connection

We recommend a minimum of 5 Mbps download and 2 Mbps upload for a stable and consistent stream of video and audio. Crowdcast will automatically drop down to audio-only mode if you or your viewer's connection is weak. If you can, try being plugged in directly to your internet rather than connecting over wifi.

3. Test your mic, camera, and screen share 

Let's connect to your camera and mic and save those settings for later. You will also want to test your screen share.
