How Call in Studio Works / FAQ
Where's the Tutorial For Setting Up the Audio for My Show?
Because of the vast array of customers' configurations, we do not have specific tutorials for every possible setup, but YouTube and Google can be a great resource for getting this working. Try searching for “How do I Use Skype with [insert your broadcasting provider or tool here]?” (examples include: YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Speaker, SAM Broadcaster, OBS, etc.).
Once you get Skype or Google Voice connected, then you can use that to dial into our host line while broadcasting your show and control calls using our Web interface.
We always recommend testing your setup by dialing into a regular phone number you have access to (e.g., your cell phone). Verify that the caller can hear the host/broadcast audio, the your show's setup can hear the caller audio. One you've verified that's working, then you can use your verified setup to dial into the Call in Studio Host Line.
In the future, we will be developing additional support and examples of customer setups. In the meantime, if you just can't figure it out, please call or email support and we will try to help you as best as we can.
