Tips and Suggestions

This article shows how you can personalize Streamer™ accounts. Before we get to that, just a quick reminder that Streamer™ is designed to be used with the Chrome browser. You can view the captioning using any browser, but for the microphone to work you'll need to be using Chrome. And, as always, if you have any questions just let us know and we'll be glad to help. You can do that by sending an email to, calling us at +1-952-381-1234, or when you're in your Streamer™ room type @Streamer-Admin into the text bar at the bottom of your page followed by your question. If you haven't already done so, you should download the Streamer™ Quick Start Guide by clicking here
Adding a Welcome Message

Each room in your Streamer™ website has a name and a title. It’s recommended that you change the label on that room to something more meaningful, such as Auditorium or Today's Message is "Make Room for the New You". Using your Admin account, jump into the room and type /topic label, where label is the wording you want to use. Also, the first time a person enters a room each day you can use the /welcome command to greet them with something like /welcome Have a great day today! You can use any welcome message you would like. And, if you have multiple rooms in your church's Streamer™ website, you can send a message to everyone using the /broadcast command. Simply enter any room and type /broadcast message where message is the information you want to share with all your users. That message will be immediately displayed in each room and sent to every User Account.
Personalizing the Account Settings

The Account Settings page is where you configure each User Account that you create. You access this page by clicking on the Person icon near the upper right corner of the Streamer™ interface (item “C” in the Quick Start Guide). You will see four tabs on this page: Profile, Username, Password and Phrases. Here’s what each tab does:
  • Profile Tab: Add a photo (or any image) of the person by clicking on the camera icon. That way everyone will see a picture of the person when they're speaking. It’s a really nice feature if you will be using the Overlay feature. You can also use this tab to change the language settings. I’ll send you a separate email with more information language settings.
  • Username Tab: Use this to change the name of the User Account to one that the person prefers.
  • Password: Passwords need to have at least eight characters. If a user ever forgets their password, just click on the Reset Password link that’s shown when you first login to Streamer™ and we’ll send you a reset link.
  • Phrases: Phrases are notes a person can insert into a live transcript of a sermon or a small group Bible study, such as This is important, or they can be phrases that are spoken aloud, such as Hi, my name is Chris. In both cases, phrases are created the same way: enter the label, then the phrase itself, and then select the color category. To use the phrases, return to the main transcript page and you'll see them listed in the right side-panel. Just double-click a phrase to enter it into your transcript. I'll talk more about phrases and adding notes in the email I'll be sending you on Small Groups.
