The Program Feed is a key tool in helping your video get everywhere it needs to.
The program feed allows Greenroom Producers to have a separate browser tab open that displays only the Greenroom canvas. In this article, we'll show you how to access the program feed, how to get a direct program feed link, and use cases for using a program feed.
What is the Program Feed?
The program feed allows Greenroom Producers to have a separate browser tab open that displays only the Greenroom canvas. This view of the canvas is full screen within its tab, and passes through all Greenroom audio that's coming from the canvas only. This viewing option is found within Gear Icon > Streaming, as shown below.
Accessing Program Feed
When you click the link to open the program feed, it will open as a new tab within the browser you're using (Chrome or Edge). The tab will open a full screen view of whatever is being displayed in the canvas.
If you have yourself as a feed within the canvas, you'll be able to see and hear yourself, which might also prompt two audio sources of the same Greenroom canvas source to be coming through your speakers. For utilizing this view, it's ideal to have it displayed on an extended monitor connected to your computer, or to host it on a completely separate computer from your Greenroom computer.
Direct Program Feed Link
The program feed can be opened other ways as well. The first is by right clicking the Program Feed button and copying the linked address, so you can paste it within another browser or send it to someone to open up on another computer.
The second option is to copy the Producer or Presenter link you have for Greenroom and adjusting it on a different computer/browser.
Most Greenroom Producer links have a URL of https://greenroom.brand.live/producer/xxxxxx, which is the the Greenroom domain, with forward slash "producer," and forward slash the special characters identifying your Greenroom. Removing "producer" and replacing it with "stream" will open up the full screen canvas view. When adjusting the Presenter link, you're adding in "/stream/" in between the domain and the Greenroom's special identifier, https://greenroom.brand.live/stream/xxxxxx.
Hybrid Productions: The program feed link is useful for a group of people that might want to monitor the virtual event, if they are part of a production team or another team monitoring the program offsite.
The Onsite Production Feed can also be utilized to improve hybrid production experiences. For more information, click here.
