How to use nanoStream Cloud to stream video conference meeting with Jitsi or Zoom

Video conferencing is nowadays a very important tool with so many people working or studying from home. For joining a video-based meeting room, you can use several products, like Skype, Teams, GotoMeeting, Jitsi, or Zoom. Most of them are based on downloadable software products with a clear use case: collaborating and speaking full-screen in a closed meeting room with a group of team members, colleagues or students.

Is it possible to share these video meetings with larger audiences and external viewers, but keep the interactive approach to keep the audience engaged in the meeting?  

You may want to send your video meeting to a live streaming platform and embed the meeting on your own web page.

There are social media platforms like Youtube Live or Facebook Live. They have several restrictions: they have their own branded environment and require 3rd party accounts, which both restricts possible ways to monetise your content. Also technically, their end-to-end latency is not enabled for interactive applications.

Embed a video meeting on your own web page and engage larger audiences!

How can I just send a video conference or meeting to my own web site and create my custom branded live streaming web site to interact with my audience?

You can do this with nanoStream Cloud!

We integrated with conferencing products like Zoom or Jitsi. You can run your meeting with these products and share a live stream to any audience!

We already used this with our own jitsi setup for a live interview.

With this approach, you can setup your own branded video meeting web site, and share a live stream with any web based audience!

Technical Background

What happens then?

The video meeting will remain in the closed group of the video call (Zoom or Jitsi).

The whole meeting is captured and sent out to the live streaming platform for distribution to larger audiences on any web page.

The nanoStream Cloud and H5Live Player solution enables audience engagement by keeping the latency (delay) between the video meeting and the live stream very low.

How to use nanoStream Cloud

Basic concept:

nanoStream Cloud is a live streaming platform for Ultra-Low-Latency live streaming. With the built-in nanoStream H5Live Player, you can share a live stream with any audience on any browser platform and easily integrate any live video into your own web page.
Zoom can directly connect to nanoStream Cloud via an RTMP Url, similar to other platforms like Facebook Live or Youtube Live. For Jitsi Meet, you need a custom setup including a modified version of the Jibri broadcasting module.

You need a Streaming URL and Stream Name (also called Stream Token) from nanoStream Cloud. You can obtain this URL and Stream Name Information from either the nanoStream Cloud Dashboard (bintu.nanocosmos.de) or you might receive this information from our support.
