Adding guests using Lightstream Studio
How do I add a guest/friend?
To add a guest/friend to your stream, you'll want to send them an invite link by clicking on the plus icon at the top left side of the editor and copying the invite link. Note: Please see this article for information about max guest count !(https://storage.cri
How do I add my guest's camera or screenshare to the broadcast?
To add your guest's camera/screenshare to your broadcast after you've sent them an invite link, you'll want to simply mouseover your guest's camera/screenshare and click the "Add to Scene" button that appears.
Can I add a Screenshare layer in addition to my guest cameras?
When using a Screenshare layer with audio along with a guest in your scene, you'll want to delete any guest microphone from the bottom left "Audio Mixer" section of your scene. This is done to prevent audio echo caused by double capture.
What can I achieve with Lightstream's guest feature?
Currently our guest feature allows the following: Guests to share cameras Guests to share screenshares Guests and hosts to chat with a built in text chat room Guests and hosts to chat through voice Hosts to add their guests' cameras and screenshares to one or multiple scenes To get started with our guest feature please [visit this article](https://help.golights
How do I run a preroll without my guests being heard?
The easiest way to do this would be by muting your guest(s) audio either in the Audio Mixer area of your Scene in the bottom left corner of your project space or in the Green Room area in the top left corner.
Is there a max amount of guests I can bring onto my stream?
The max amount of guests (does not include you as the host) is 7 Guests.
Does each guest need their own invite link?
Nope! Once you generate a link you can reuse the same link for as many guests as you'd like. However, be careful as this link will allow a user access to your green room until you generate a new one.
What happens when I generate a new guest invite link?
When generating a new invite link, your old invite link will expire immediately. Afterwards, a new room for your guests will be generated and all previous/current guests will be disconnected
How long do invite links last?
Any invite link you create will last indefinitely until you generate a new one. Once a new one has been generated your old link will become invalid.
How do I share my screen with a guest?
At the moment we don't allow for hosts to share their screens with their guests, but we do allow for guests to share their screens with the host. We will be adding host screensharing in the future.
