How to Join

To show and share your project, view the chat in Discord https://adafru.it/discord in the #livebroadcast topic. Look for the link in the chat window to join the StreamYard chat.

Setup for best results:

  • Be sure your webcam/camera and microphone is working with your computer
  • Try to be on a wired Internet connection for the best streaming speed
  • Be sure you are in an area that has good lighting to best show you and your work
  • Use of a headset and microphone is preferable over use of speakers and mic
  • You can see what others may be discussing in Discord if you have it started beforehand (see the how-to below)

When you are on:

  • Please mute your microphone until called on.
  • Be sure to unmute your microphone for your turn.
  • Clearly describe what you've been working on.
  • Keep your turn to around 3-4 minutes so everyone has a chance to share.
  • The program ends by around 7:55 pm Eastern so the Ask an Engineer show can start at 8 PM. If there are more people that time allows, please try to join the following week.
