What is Crowdcast?
How do I make a patron-only Crowdcast livestream?
To set up or schedule a livestream, make a post as you usually would by selecting the posts button on your left sidebar. From here, you'll find the livestream button.
Select the "Use Crowdcast" button. This will take you to another browser page, where you'll find the option to set up your Crowdcast account, if you don't have one already. This will automatically create a Crowdcast account for you, using your Patreon login credentials. You can also choose to set up your first stream at this point on Crowdcast.
Once you have set up your stream, go back to the browser page that your Patreon account is on. Here you'll have the option to test your livestream and check how it will display, or set up a livestream post. On desktop, you can preview your post before publishing by clicking the View button.
You also have the ability to schedule a livestream. Select the date and time you'd like the livestream scheduled.
