Sean Cannell Livestream Universe Update Flash Briefing Alexa

Create High-Quality Content Consistently

Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Monday, May 14th, 2018.

Viewers are not pleased with what they’re seeing so far from Major League Baseball’s Facebook Live game broadcasts, according to VideoInk.com. Fans are unhappy with the presentation of the broadcast, in particular “clunky graphics, wasted screen space and nonsensical closed captions.” These complaints from viewers differ from the gripes about delays and crashes that have plagued past livestreams of sporting events.

On Today’s viewing schedule:

At 3pm ET, Owen Video hosts BeLive Weekly on the BeLive TV Facebook page. YouTube star Sean Cannell joins Owen to talk about why content is king and the importance of consistency.

At 9pm ET, it’s “Ask Mike Murphy.” Mike takes your tech and podcasting questions at the Mike Murphy LLC Facebook page.

Facebook Live Updates from Streaming Media East 2018

Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Wednesday, May 9th, 2018.

Facebook revealed three new features at Streaming Media East in New York City yesterday that will benefit Facebook Live users:

The one that stands out for audience growth is live cross-posting. That means your live video can appear on multiple pages at the same time while aggregating the views. This is different from sharing videos. Cross-posted videos are treated as posts published by all the pages where they appear.

Another new Facebook Live feature is called Persistent Stream Keys. Only one permanent stream key is needed to use the Facebook Live API, speeding the process for individuals and teams to go live.

And Facebook is testing a live rewind feature that should popular when released. Viewers joining a live video in progress will have the option of going back and watching what they missed or catching a highlight and then jumping back to the live content.

On the viewing schedule:

AT 12pm ET, it’s the Business of Video Podcast with Owen Video and Nick Nimmin. Guest Salma Jafri shares branding secrets. That’s on the Owen Video X Facebook page.

At 2pm ET today, Mitch Jackson and Joey Vitale host LegalHour Live on the Legal Hour Live Facebook page. They will talk about GDPR and what online business owners need to know about privacy issues.

At 5pm ET, it’s Camera Confidence Live with Molly Mahoney on the BeLive TV Facebook page. Molly will be discussing 7 Mistakes Most Business Owners make with Video Marketing.

Stop streaming while driving Mitch Jackson

Stop Streaming While Driving

Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Monday, April 30th, 2018.

In Real Life or IRL live streaming too often means streaming while driving. And this is a trend that can have horrible consequences.

A YouTuber was involved in a serious car accident recently while distracted by reading comments on his phone. He failed to see the stop sign or notice the truck approaching him. He was reported to be in moderate to serious condition after being hospitalized with blunt force trauma and airlifted from the scene, according to CBS Philly & CNN Wire Services. The YouTuber said he was streaming to make the 40-minute drive less boring.

This follows a near-incident in which a popular and controversial YouTube IRL vlogger just missed causing an accident while driving and live streaming with other IRL streamers in his car.

Streaming Attorney Mitch Jackson has been a leader in raising awareness about distracted driving.

As a Livestream Universe guest in May 2017, Mitch drew a sharp line in the sand when it comes to streaming while driving.

Mitch and his son Garrett Jackson run the Stop Distracted Driving Facebook group.

On Today’s viewing schedule:

At 3pm ET, Owen Video hosts BeLive Weekly on the BeLive TV Facebook page.

At 9pm ET, it’s “Ask Mike Murphy.” Bring your tech and podcasting questions to the Mike Murphy LLC Facebook page.
