Do you want a portable, easy-to-use camera that allows you to livestream your video feed? The DJI Osmo allows you to do just that. How do you shoot a livestream with the DJI Osmo? In this video, join Richard Harrington as he guides you through how to livestream your videos with the DJI Osmo.
- One of my favorite features of the Osmo camera is the ability to use it for live streaming. Now the ability to use Osmo Mobile and just mount the camera right in, is great. If you're on a total budget, this is a simple option. Rather than worrying about a wireless connection from camera to phone, you're just using the phone and it makes it easy to do walking tours, or to take people to live events that they can't see. But the ability to use this as a webcasting platform's pretty useful. Inside of the app you have the ability to choose from a wide range of hosts.
Let me show ya. Just go to the camera when it's connected, tap your settings icon, and at the bottom you could choose Select Live Broadcast Platform. For example, Facebook Live is quite popular, but WeiBo is a service used in China and YouTube allows you to take advantage of YouTube Live. Let's go with Facebook Live which makes it easy to share with friends. Now if you've already connected your accounts, you'll see your name. Now I've already signed in but let's sign out so you see the process real quick.
So if you go to Facebook Live for the first time, you may have to tap Log in with Facebook. It's going to try to connect and it's going to ask to authorize the app. If you've given it permission in the past it should reconnect. Now when ready, we'll just tap Go Live. I'll give this a quick description. (microphone beeps) Class on the DJI Osmo, period.
Please say hi for a moment, period. Now you could tap to add a location. I'll specify that I'm at the Media Factory Studios and I'll choose to go public with this, but you can actually limit this to just your friends if you want or if you're doing a private test, set it so only you can see it which is useful if you want to practice, and not let everybody see you struggle the first few times.
Alright, now we're all set so I'll tap Go Live. Counts me down and we're ready to go. So at this point, I'm just going to tap to remove that histogram but I'm live and it tells me that the stream is beginning. Now when you first log in, it may take a little while to see some viewers. Unless you've previously scheduled the event, you're not going to have viewers just standing by waiting for your Facebook Live stream. But if you've let people know that this is happening, after a little bit of time it'll start to show up in their streams.
What you're going to want to be able to do is just start the stream in advance and give people a chance to log in. You'll see when viewers turn in. Hi viewer, we're recording a class all about using the DJI Osmo, and I'm actually live streaming right now using my smartphone and the camera from DJI which is pretty cool. Well now there's four viewers and this is one of the great powers here of being able to livestream with something like Facebook Live, is you can actually reach out and connect with an audience which is pretty cool.
Now you're going to allow this to actually enable this to go ahead and capture the audio while you're recording, and for those of you who are out there listening, you're actually able to post comments right now if you'd like. So if you want to type a comment in live, I'd appreciate it 'cause it'll allow people to see it. But this is going to make that a bit simpler. If you turn this here you'll see it adjust and it gives you a little bit more framing, and what we're doing for those of you just tuning in is we are sharing a live signal. Now I look forward, I'll be seeing some of you at the upcoming NAB conference and thank you guys for putting up with this livestream that actually has no purpose, other than to illustrate how you can livestream from the camera.
But thank you guys very much for tuning in. Now when you're all done, if you tap the screen there, you can of course just shut down or tap the live button there, and you can then choose to End Facebook Live. When you do this, the video is going to tell you how long it was up, how much you were talking, and it'll be posted to the Timeline. You could go ahead and close and it will save that file. Now, if I go to Facebook, it may take a moment to appear but relatively quickly, that's going to pop up in your feed.
So, that's how fast it was. There's the video that I just recorded. And thank you Mitch for posting a comment. Now you'll see here that it made the connection and shared the signal, allowing me to do the webcast. If you tap this here you could actually see what's happening. Let's get the livestream and people can write comments or add other markers here, or react to what they're seeing.
