Introducing Media Upload: Add Intros and Outros to Your Broadcasts

You are looking to add an intro scene to your broadcast? Maybe you want to close out with something eventful at the end of your show? Or you just want to play a clip without having to share screen? Media upload has you covered.

Let’s talk about 3 things: (1) what is media upload, (2) how folks are using it today, (3) how you can use it - hyper simple 5 second guide

1. What is media upload

  • Media upload allows you (the host) to upload short video clips
  • We store them in the cloud
  • You can then use them during any broadcast at any time you want

2. How are folks using media upload today

  • Intros! A 30 second countdown timer is perfect to let your audience know that you should will begin soon. Why? First, it generates hype and awareness for your broadcast. Next, it creates critical mass for your stream so that you already have a few viewers watching when you start. After that it just snowballs. The first 5-10 viewers are always tough, but if we can get the first 5-10 then the path to 100+ is easy.
  • Breaks and outros too! You can play media clips to signal that the show is ending. Or perhaps you want to play something engage signaling that you will be right back. This way your audience doesn’t need to stare at an empty chair while you get a glass of water or take a call.
  • Custom use case to play anything you want. Yes screenshare works too, but for media files and videos - media upload works best. If you want to play a video clip during your show - use media upload. Maybe there is a music video or a recording you want to play.
