Legal Bytes: Behind Livestreaming the Depp v. Heard Trial | Speedify LIVE
May 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Live Streaming Trials Online
On the 81st episode of Speedify LIVE we head to the virtual courtroom with Alyte from Legal Bytes, the livestreaming lawyer who covers exciting high-profile cases live on stream to thousands of viewers!
We discuss how she got started with LawTube, how her online success has affected her plans and goals, and how she manages to make law fun and interesting to her audience.
Here are our 5 takeaways from our chat with Alyte:
- At first, Alyte started her YouTube channel with pre-produced video content, but has also started livestreaming after finding it to be the best way to collaborate with others! She saw how others were doing weekly collab streams, reached out, her livestreaming career began and her channel grew immensely.
- The LegalBytes streaming setup is as follows: a Sony a6400 camera, a Shure MV7 microphone, running the production on a Macbook Pro for its convenient portability, with two screens so everything could be monitored. Alyte also uses StreamYard for her streams, as it's served her well so far.
- When it comes to making money off of YouTube, there's a number of ways to do it: Alyte has been using Super Chat on her streams, but you can also get ad revenue from your videos, and there's sponsorships you can get as well.
- LawTube, as the community calls it, has been nothing but a pleasure to be a part of, according to Alyte. She says everyone sticks together, helping and promoting each other, and it's been great to see legal topics be discussed with nuance, grace and a lot of humor. Alyte says she even enjoys the disagreements, because everyone gets to have conversations that help them grow through the process.
- Alyte says that you could start a YouTube channel or livestream about pretty much any field: from law to architecture to anything in between! She says there are different ways people can use their areas of expertise to educate others in a way that's both functional and entertaining.
The more you get your feet wet, the better at it you get. You will be supremely uncomfortable the first time that you do it, but it is worthwhile sitting in that discomfort and just going ahead and doing it because over time you'll get more and more comfortable.
