Best Practices for Houses of Worship Live Streaming Setup

When you want to live stream church services, use all of your available Internet sources at once to avoid connectivity issues. Speedify works with all houses of worship live streaming software and social platforms to get you faster, more reliable Internet.

How to Live Stream Church Services

Deliver fluent live service to your community from your church, temple, synagogue, mosque, etc. Use all available Internet connections for best live video performance on YouTube, Facebook Live and any other social platform from your house of worship.

Live streaming church services is not something new; according to this house of worship stats compilation from 2017, there were some 167k  church events online in 2016 alone with over 70% of total donations being made online.

Unreliable Internet is something you'll stumble upon at some point when you're live streaming from houses of worship. This can happen due to several reasons:

  • Your Wi-Fi hotspot can be faulty.
  • If you also have people attending the service live inside your church, synagogue, mosque or temple - they might eat up the available Wi-Fi and cellular bandwidth for that area.
  • Your ISP is doing maintenance work right when you’re broadcasting live streams. Or if they’re throttling your connection.

Speedify is a must have tool in your house of worship live streaming video tech stack. It’s a powerful  Internet connection bonding software app that gets you faster, more reliable and secure Internet. Speedify dynamically optimizes live streams based on your connectivity. Speedify runs on computers, smartphones, tablets and various devices that run Linux, including Raspberry Pi.

You can combine any mix of two or more Wi-Fi networks, cellular networks and wired networks. By doing that, you’re not only solving the reliability aspect of live streaming through the automatic Internet failover mechanism, but also the  bandwidth and latency issues.

Focus on the spiritual service and getting your community together through live streaming, and not on fixing Internet connectivity issues. That's what live streaming from houses of worship should help with when done right!

Houses of Worship Live Streaming Setup Checklist

What You Need to Live Stream Virtual Services for the Chruch

Streaming Device

Whether a laptop, tablet, smartphone, computer, etc., this is the heart of your live streaming from the house of worship. You will use it to live stream to native social apps or to  multi stream using streaming software to your comunity 

Dedicated Microphones

When live streaming from a house of worship, it's important to also capture the audio - whether it's the minister's speech or the gospel music. Make sure you have several microphones placed in critical locations and connected to your streaming devices (can be via Bluetooth, for example).

Video Camera

It should be able to stream video at least 1080p / 30 fps. You can go with your smartphone, a dedicated camera with HTMI output or maybe try the GoPro live streaming functionality.

Streaming Apps

You can go with either the native apps for each social platform you wish to stream to - Twitch, YouTube, Facebook Live. Or you can use streaming software that also has the capability to stream to multiple destinations at once - Streamlabs, Streamyard, Wirecast, Ecamm Live, Melon and others. There are also dedicated church streaming solutions.

Connection Bonding Software - Speedify

This will help you combine all the connections available to you at once. No more buffering or stream disconnects! Speedify is much more flexible and cost effective than dedicated hardware bonding devices

Internet Cellular Data Connections

You should definitely have these available, as a backup to the house of worship's own Wi-Fi / wired Ethernet connection. Just connect them all to the streaming device and combine them together with Speedify.

Speedify is a must have if you need a stable connection for live streaming. For best results, use at least two Internet connections - I also got a private dedicated server, which makes the service even better, because you are the only one using the server!

During my last stream, I lost all network connectivity over my primary Wi-Fi network and didn't even notice because Speedify just made it so seamless.

Since moving our entertaining to Zoom last March we have had a lot of problems with our internet connection, making our events a lot less professional. Since being introduced to Speedify that has all changed and we haven't dropped out of a call ONCE!
