View the live broadcast URL using a web browser

You can share a channel's live broadcast URL with viewers so they can watch your live stream using their favorite web browser. Your viewers must be on the same network as Pearl-2 to watch a live broadcast using the channel's live broadcast URL.

If the channel you're streaming is configured with 48 kHz audio, some web browsers may not work. In this case, we recommend viewing the channel steam using a media player instead.

The live broadcast URL appears in two places in the Admin panel:

  • On the channel's status page.
  • On the Info page from the Configuration menu.

To locate the IP address for the broadcast, see Directly sharing channel stream URLs with viewers.

If a viewer password is configured, provide participants with the password to log in, along with the URL of the stream. To set a viewer password, see Change user passwords.

If HTTPS is enabled on Pearl-2, replace http with https in the URL of the stream.

  1. Login to the Admin panel as admin or operator, see Connect to Admin panel.

  2. Alternatively, open the Info page to get the live broadcast URL. From the Configuration menu, click Info and then click View for the channel you want to share the broadcast URL.

A page opens displaying the live broadcast and the broadcast URL. Copy the URL and share that with your viewers.
