Test your setup

Before you go live, have a play around with the features on the streaming platform, watch some streams from other musicians and figure out how your equipment works (you can find help & support for streaming on Lounges.tv here).

Before going live it is essential to test your setup. Make sure you have a stable internet connection and your battery has enough charge or is plugged in. You can use an online speed test tool to check your internet speed. Before going live, you can use the ‘Soundcheck & Go Live’ window in the pre-stream lobby to test your camera and microphone. Get your angle right, ensure all external devices are connected and the audio is clear.
