Socialive and Brightcove have partnered to provide simple integration between the two platforms. 

Connect your Brightcove account 

To connect your Socialive and Brightcove accounts, you will need your Brightcove API Key, which you can get from your Brightcove account manager: 

  • In Socialive Studio, click the Brightcove icon in the distribution bar
  • Click Add account...
  • Enter a Label. This label will be applied as a tag to the media asset within Brightcove
  • Enter your API Key into the other 5 fields.
  • Click Save

Once connected, users within the account can broadcast live to Brightcove any time without any manual setup or configuration in Brightcove ahead of time.

Alternatively, you can broadcast live to a pre-configured live event in Brightcove by adding an RTMP connection.

When you broadcast to Brightcove, a new live media asset will appear in your library with the Title, Description, and Tag (label) entered in Socialive:

What's my API Key?
You'll need to get your API key from your Brightcove account representative.

What's my Label (Brightcove Tag)?
The Label field will be applied as a tag to your media asset in Brightcove. You can create multiple Brightcove "channels" using the same credentials, each with a unique label/tag. This gives broadcasters a way to select which Brightcove "channel" to use. You can also set up smart playlists and galleries to automatically publish these live videos.
