Social stream share, a hidden gem!

Pros

Besides its flexibility, the social stream share is a powerful tool, that I think is underrated by many users. They probably don't understand how that alone can boot your reach exponentially. Super easy to send invites for guats and friends to share your stream.

Cons

I wish they had a studio, and a way to manage the chat from the streamshare channels.

Solid product with quick setup but lacks features

Switchboard is good for what it does. Stream live to multiple sources. If that's what you want, and that's all that you want, then Switchboard will get the job done nicely. But if you want extra features, unfortunately, Switchboard doesn't yet have them. However Switchboard offers a smooth and easy setup if you want your live stream to be displayed across multiple platforms. It has a nice, intuitive flow to getting started. You have plenty of platform options and options for the source of the stream. The StreamShare function seems interesting if you have a network of people who are willing to also share your livestream on their channels/profiles.

Pros

Switchboard makes it very easy to stream your live video to multiple locations at the same time. A unique feature that draw me to it is called StreamShare - where you get to invite other people to stream your live video, on their channels. It's an easy setup where you just share a special page with them, and they can connect their channel to your stream, without giving them your passwords or sensitive info. I still have to wrap my head about how to motivate others to share my stream on their channel and how this would all work from a business perspective. Getting ready to stream is pretty easy. You just add the destinations, currently 12 - facebook, youtube, twitter , twitch, linkedin, dacast, vimeo, snapstream, streamingchurchtv, regular RTMP, dlive & acamai. For me I just used for multiple of my own youtube accounts and twitch. And I'd imagine many people would probably only use for facebook, youtube and twitch. So the important ones are here. The output works good, it's fast in full HD (1080p) and clear, without any lags. It great that it works with OBS (which is free), but there are also a lot of other options which are less popular. They have youtube videos that show you how to setup everything to get started.

Cons

I don't like the interface. The main website has a nice modern design, but after I login, the design is just horrid. Why is it dark mode with no option to switch to white? It looks like a 1995 design with all that gray interface. I get it that it wants to have this "studio" kind of vibe, but it's not a studio, it's a website. Another thing, is the lack of features. Honestly, there are many competitors, and most of them already have a scheduling function. Switchboard only allows it to go live. Scheduling a live stream with a pre-recorded video is pretty essential for these kinds of tools. The tool lacks a lot of other minor features, and it just seems incomplete. All I can do is stream live, and that's pretty much about it. It needs a better interface and more features.

Reasons for Switching to Switchboard Cloud

Switchboard is very simple, so uncomplicated. But at the same time, this might be a negative because this simplicity also means a lack of features. I've tried Onestream, Videolinq, Restream, and for me Switchboard seems the simplest to use. However, for my use-case, I think I'll switch back to Onestream simply because it has a scheduler for pre-recorded videos to go live, without my interference. The StreamShare feature is what drawn me to Switchboard, but I quickly realized that I don't have the network of people with high follower counts to make it worthwhile for me to stream via their channels/profiles. So I'm still wrapping my mind about how to get connected with such people to make full use of this feature, and it really is a unique feature that no other platform has.

Stream to different accounts simultaneously, even invite colleagues

We provide different social media and content management services for clients. This platform has proven valuable for us as an agency since it will let us reach more users for our clients.

Pros

There are different livestreaming platforms that will let you simultaneously stream to your social media accounts. What differentiates Switchboard is their StreamShare feature, which will let your associates/colleagues/influencer accounts easily join in streaming your live show.

Cons

There are small snags when setting up the streams. For example, adding a StreamShare destination is not always as automatic as it could be. However, I'm sure this minor issues will be easily resolved in the future.
