I canceled my StreamYard last year because they lacked a few features that I really wanted, but this year in 2023 they added a TON that got me excited to use Stream Yard again, and in this video I share 6 of those new features for 2023:
Transcript of video:
Hey, what’s going on. Mike Hobbs here. And in this video, I will actually want to talk about why I reactivated my stream yard account. And the quick story on this is I first got string yard probably about a year ago, and then I was using it. I loved it. I was able to stream to multiple platforms and, but it just didn’t have the, a good quality.
It didn’t have a few features that I really, really wanted. So I ended up canceling my StreamYard account, and I’m a person who only promotes tools. That I actually personally use. So I did one video on it and I can link to that somewhere in the description, if you would like to see that past video. Uh, but then I ended up canceling it because it didn’t have certain features.
So here is why I reactivated my account. So I’m going to go over six different reasons in this video. Why did it, so the first reason is it has a record only feature now. So I’m actually going to be. Previewing this and using the tool as I go through it. So I’m actually going to show my screen real quick and show you the tool as I’m going through it.
And this video is being recorded in the tool as well. So as you can see, if I click over here to create a broadcast and new broadcast, We now have a record, only feature. So I love this because sometimes I just want to record a video. I don’t want to go live everywhere. So that’s what I’m doing right now.
I’m actually just using the actual tool and I’m recording a video. Right inside the tool. So the next thing is it has 1080p resolution. Now it was actually, they had it when I first did it, but now it is all a lot better. And the quality is a lot better in my opinion than it used to be. So they have 1080p.
And again, I’ll show my screen real quick and I’ll show you where you can do that. So once you’ve set up a broadcast and we’ll just do test broadcast, Once you go into the broadcast. It’ll now give you an option under settings under your camera. There’s an advanced settings here where you can set it to 1080p
definition. So before it’s 720p, but I believe you have to have the highest level of their account. If you’re going to get the 1080p still. So you do have to upgrade to their paid level and the highest level that they have in order to get 1080p but that’s okay because I’ll share with you how to get it free here.
So, anyway, that is another cool feature. So the next feature I really, really love is the ability to multistream with a recorded video. So let me show you my screen again, real quick. And as you can see, we now have, if I click out of here, when I click on broadcast, it says, use a prerecorded video. This is a new feature.
This is, they didn’t actually have this before, so I can actually shoot a video. Before I go live and I can use that video to actually multistream on multiple platforms. So when I say, when I say multistream, here’s what I mean? You get a set of destinations where you can add literally Facebook groups, Facebook pages.
LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter, all these different things. And you can have an, even a custom one right here. So you can multistream or class, all of those different platforms. At one time, they used to be able to do that before, but when they added this new feature where I could actually go live with a prerecorded video, That was a game changer because there’s other tools out there like restream and some of these other things, but this one has it built in here as well.
So it actually eliminates that need. I was actually using things like OBS, uh, mixed with restream in the past, or I would use Ecamm live mixed with restream. So you had to have multiple programs in order to do this before and now you can do it right inside of stream yard, right there. So the next feature I really love is you can have teams now.
So if you want multiple people in your account, so right under here, you’re under members, you can actually have multiple team members in here. So if you have a business partner or somebody who you want to co-host and actually be able to control, set up meetings, do the controls for you. Or maybe you just have an assistant that you want to help manage.
Your broadcasts, you can now do that. You can add team members and if you need more, you can pay for more team members. You get one free one with your account, which I think is really, really cool. So if you just have an assistant that you want them to kind of manage it while you’re doing your own stream, I do all mine by myself, but I do have a business partner that it’s nice.
Just being able to him and being able to log in and do the stream. If he wants to. So it’s a really awesome feature. And the next thing is you can now have picture in pictures. I haven’t shown this feature yet in this video, but let me show you this right now. So you can actually be inside of the actual browser, like in the bottom left hand corner right here.
And as you can see, and when you add these little banners like this, it just pushes you up. And it still puts you on the screen, but now you can have your whole screen because this is what it used to be. And that’s what I was doing up to this point in this video, as I was using this feature right here, where it’s just to the side.
So you still have that option, but now you can go inside, right? You can actually go in the bottom left corner of the actual. And, uh, and have that good, another cool feature. And let me show you, this is you can add multiple cameras. Okay. So multiple cameras. So let me just add another camera to the screen.
As you can see, I have my web camera here and I’ve got my regular camera here, so you can have multiple camera views as well. They’d never used to have this before, but I think that’s so cool. And then you can also have the multiple cameras on the side. You can have the multiple cameras. Below inside the Picture in Picture.
And then if you do have the little pop-ups or the banners that you want to pull open, as you can see, you can do that as well. So those are the six new features of why I re activated. And one bonus feature is they actually have a new affiliate program as well. So let me show you my screen real quick. And they, they added this.
I don’t know when they added this. Maybe they would had it when I was there before, but it didn’t notice it, but I actually had some referrals into the tool when I first started using it. And they only gave me a one-time commission and uh, like basically free months. Like, so if you go into your shipyard back back office here, and you click on my account, they have referral program, which will give you free months of the service.
You just get some credit. But this one is way better because now they pay you a 25% residual commission. When you refer people to this program, you obviously have to apply for it. Not everyone will be approved most likely, but I just wanted to throw that out there because one of the, one of the concepts that I really love when I’m using a tool.
As I love being able to get the tool better than free, better than free. And that’s what this does. So you can actually use this tool and have it better than free because you refer four people it’s free because you’re earning 25% residual commission. But if you have the fifth person, if you refer five people to this tool, now you are earning money to use.
So it’s better than free. So yes, even though you need the highest version in order to get the 1080p resolution, well, just go out there and refer some people to the tool and boom. Now your tool is paying you. So I don’t ever pay for. They usually pay me. And that’s the key here. All right. So there you have it.
If you would like to pick up this tool through my affiliate link and support this channel, and if you got value from this video, make sure to give it a thumbs up, but you can go over to SeekProsperity.com/streamyard, and pick up the tool. They have a free version by the way, but if you would like the paid version, I highly highly recommend getting the paid version for the different reasons that I mentioned in this.
So make it a wonderful day and I look forward to seeing you in the next video. Bye.
