In order to webcast your account LIVE you must first install
Real Producer 10 on your PC.
You MUST use Real Producer Helix to encode successfully with
WebcastWarehouse. If you do not have the software installed already, you can download
it free from here:
Installation Notes: You
should close all applications on your PC before
installing Real Producer. Once you have downloaded the file
, Click it and install Real

now change the webcast bitrate or bandwidth settings for your
target audience. We typically have set them already for you at
the job file, so you may ignore this step, but you can
change them to suit your outgoing webcast. These settings are critical. If you want to be
able to reach users with only a dial-up modem connection, you
will need to send your webcast to our servers at no more than
56Kbps. If you want to reach broadband users, typically a 64Kbps
webcast is good enough for audio, and 64Kbps to 100Kbps for
video. Just remember.. keep the webcast bitrate as low as you
can - you will reach more people that way with less interruption
or 'drop-out'. Your audience connection or their ISP may not be
as good as yours!
|Press the 'Audiences' button. On the right-hand panel, individually select each
'Audience in job 1' item and press the 'Del' delete key on your computer until you remove

"56K Dial-Up" or "64K Single" and press the arrow "->" button in the middle to move the selection to the right hand side. You have now set up your bitrate
settings. You can add more than one target bitrate to reach
various audiences, but you must have an adequate outgoing
internet connection - they all add up! Click the red
to close the 'Audiences' window.

done! Once you have followed the instructions
above, and successfully configured the software, you can start webcasting.
