How to Add a Guest in StreamYard – Video Transcript
Let me walk you through how to add a guest in StreamYard so you can get up and streaming with multiple guests with ease. I’m Sara Nguyen, and on this channel, I help you grow your business using video on social media with ease.
Let’s get right into this StreamYard tutorial, where I’m going to walk you through how to add guests in StreamYard, what you need to know and how to get it all to work. It’s really easy to add a guest and all you would need to do after you’ve logged into StreamYard is at the bottom here where it says, invite, you’d want to click on that.
And what you’ll get now is a link that you can then send to your guests so that they can enter via this link. So copy that link, send it to them via email, via messenger, via WhatsApp, whatever your mode of communication is. And they’ll be able to log in using that. Let’s have a look at what it looks like on their end when they received the link.
So this is what it looks like when your guest receives the link. They’re able to add their name in this section here, and then they’re able to configure using this cam/microcog here, the camera that they want to use so if they click on that section, then they can choose the different cameras if they have multiple options.
If they click on show advance, they can choose the camera resolution that will work for them. If they click on audio, this allows them to choose the microphone setting as well as the speaker settings.
So if you’ve got a headset or they’ve got an audio interface, they’re able to configure where they want the sound to come out of. They’ve also got the option to play with green screen. So if they have a green screen and they want to activate that for the live stream, they’re able to use this setting here to use that.
Otherwise, they’re ready to go after they’ve configured all of that, you would simply click on X to get out of it. And then they would click on enter broadcast studio to enter your live stream. So let’s see what happens once your guest enters.
Now, after your guest has entered the studio, you’ll be able to see them in the bottom here, but they won’t actually be part of the stream until you literally click on them and add them to the stream. So I’m going to add myself to the stream and then I’m going to add my guests to the stream.
And now we’re both on the live stream and I can play it, play around with a couple of the different options. I can play with the layout so that you can see the background and just play around with the layouts to choose the one that I like. The other thing with your guests is that you can also easily move them around by dragging and dropping if you wanted to change the arrangement of how they appeared, which is really cool.
So just go ahead and click and see how you like the configuration of how your guest appears and then choose one that suits you. And you can swap between the different layouts during the live stream. So you’re not necessarily stuck with one or the other.
With your guests, you can also mute and unmute their microphone in case they’re making some noise. If you click on these three dots, you’ll be able to edit their names so I can change their name to be whatever I want. If they’ve entered it incorrectly, or I want it to display differently.
If I click on this again, I can kick them from the studio or even ban them from the studio if I’m having problems with the guest. Now, the other thing to note is that your guests will be able to see the comments as well.
They’ll be able to see the same comments that you see in the chat, where your viewers are sending comments. And the other thing that you have access to is private chat. So in private chat, you can talk to your guests and you can have a conversation via chat and they can respond to you and your viewers won’t be able to see this.
So this allows you to send links to each other, prompt each other, but your viewers won’t be able to see the comments. So that makes it really handy. And then once you’re ready to remove your guest from the live stream, if you don’t want them to hang around anymore, you would click remove, and that will take them off the actual live stream.
And then with the three dots, you can kick them from the studio to get rid of them altogether. And then StreamYard will ask you if you want to confirm that you want to kick JZ or your friend out of the live stream.
