Timing within Brushfire
Use the Stream Pre-Play setting to allow viewers to enter and watch your web event prior to the listed start time. When combined, these times should not generate a time prior to your web event start time in Studio.
For timing a live event: If your Brushfire event start time is set to 5 pm, and your live web event schedule is set to start at 4:55 pm, do not exceed a stream pre-play time of 3 minutes. Your web event available to watch time and your event start time should match at 4:57 pm.
For timing a replay: If your Brushfire event start time indicates 5 pm, and your replay is set to start at 4:55 pm, do not exceed a stream pre-play time of 4 minutes. Your event start time and your stream start time should match at 4:56 pm.
Access through Brushfire
You may set up a specific viewing time for your channel and all content within that channel. To edit this access, view your channel, and enter the Access tab, you may set visibility and availability to make a channel private or choose times when a channel is not accessible. Channels which are not set to always be available will never be able to show Resi content outside of the specified time.
