If you're itching to test your stream and perform your first show on Sessions, we're happy to offer you several alternatives on how to broadcast your audio and video to our servers! You can choose between using your mobile device or your computer to stream and you should be able to use the Sessions features while streaming on any of them.
Option A - our mobile app
To jump right in and start performing with minimal setup, we advise you to use our mobile app for Android/iOS to stream. You'll be able to use your device's camera and microphone, both of which are usually very high quality, so no other equipment is needed. To start, proceed to the following Help Article: How can I stream from the Sessions app?
Option B - your computer's browser
If you have a computer, a webcam, and a microphone (or want to use any musical instrument alongside your mic) you might want to consider streaming through your computer instead of a mobile device. You can stream directly from your browser by visiting the Sessions website while using a computer and, as long as your audio devices are hooked to your computer, no other software is needed. To start, proceed to the following Help Article: How can I stream from my computer browser?
Option C - specialized streaming software
If you're an experienced streamer and are used to broadcasting to other streaming platforms, you might be familiar with streaming software such as OBS Studio or Streamlabs OBS, or might even have them all already set up with your scenes and overlays. You can use any specialized streaming software to stream to Sessions and all you need to know to hook the software to our servers is in the following Help Article: How can I stream from my computer using Streamlabs OBS?
After you did your first stream to test things out, the quickest and easiest way to learn all of our advanced features and initiatives is by going through the interactive courses of the Sessions Essentials program.
