How to add a Yi Live output in TVU Channel

TVU Channel makes it simple for anyone to take a channel to “Air” and output your live stream into your Yi Live account.

To output your TVU Channel to Yi Live:

  1. To add an output destination, click the Go Live button.
  2. Click +Add to list possible output options, from social media to professional broadcast formats.
  3. Choose the Yi Live option.
  4. Enter a descriptive Name for this output, such as “Output_via_Yi_Live”
  5. Enter a mobile phone number where you can receive an authentication code, which will be required to proceed.
  6. Click the Get Message Code button, and wait for the code to arrive via text message at the mobile phone number you entered in step 5.
  7. Enter this code into the Message Code field to authenticate your account and allow TVU Channel to post content directly to Yi Live.
  8. Type in a descriptive Video Title for your channel content on Yi Live.
  9. If you are using vertical video mode from your phone, click the Portrait Mode checkbox so the Yi Live post also is in vertical video mode.
  10. Set the video Resolution for this output. A higher resolution improves quality but increases network traffic.
  11. Set the Bitrate for your output. The bitrate determines how much networking capacity you are dedicating to the output. A higher bitrate increases network traffic but improves quality.
  12. Select a GOP size and Stream Type.
  13. Click the Save button to finish creating this new Yi Live output destination.
  1. Move the slider to the right when your Yi Live stream displays in the output pop-up window to activate your new output destination.
  2. To change the settings on this output, click on the three-dot icon (…) and click Settings. Change the settings as needed and Save your changes.
  3. To deactivate this output destination, click the slider to the left. It will turn gray to indicate it is deactivated.
  4. To delete this output destination, click the slider to the left to deactivate it. Then click on the three-dot icon (…) and select Delete.
