This tutorial is outdated. This is a wiki post: feel free to edit and fix it to match current status.

This tutorial is originally written by DJ Blade Sparx and DJ aSa.

Please note: you will not have access to the Slipmat Native Streaming Engine by default after being invited to DJ on Slipmat. The engine is currently in alpha testing and only those DJs who are willing to help by contributing are invited to the alpha testing group. If you are willing to participate and help, you can apply, otherwise it’s better to wait for this method to be launched as a public feature.

  1. To Start The Broadcast / Event:

When you are in Slipmat Alpha testing group, you will be able to access you broadcast server and stream key address at: https://slipmat.io/dj/keys/ while logged into your Slipmat account. You should add them in your broadcast program video stream settings.
