With BeLive you have 2 options of creating a Podcast:
Create an offline recording and use its audio for your podcast; or
Stream a live broadcast and get the audio file of it after
So you are always able to go LIVE on Facebook/YouTube and then download the audio. That would allow you to appeal to a new audience, grow your community and broaden your creative value. If you are new to broadcasting with BeLive, you can check out our articles on how to go live on Facebook and YouTube.
In this article, we will show you how to start a recording that will not go live or be visible to anyone else but you.
To start off, click Set Destination and choose Offline Recording.
If you want to add guests who will join you during the recording, go through this guide to learn a few quick steps.
Click Connect your camera. Once all is set and guests have joined, push sources to the stream by clicking the orange button Show in Stream in the top right corner.
You also have the choice to disable your guest's mic. Simply select Mute on their camera source.
To start recording, press Record from the toolbar on the left. The same button will stop the recording.
After the broadcast is finished, you can download the video in mp4 format to re-purpose it or Download Audio (.aac format) to use for your podcast. Just go to your BeLive profile, click My Broadcasts and click Download Audio.
