With Stream Markers, you and editors of your channel can add markers while you’re live and use them later in the Highlighter for easier editing. In order to add stream markers, a channel must have Past Broadcast storage enabled and streaming live (as opposed to running a Premiere or Rerun).

How to Add Stream Markers

On your Live Dashboard page, there will be a widget labeled Stream Markers. When you want to add a marker to a specific timestamp, simply click the Add marker at … button. You can also add an optional description.

Tip: You can also use the ctrl + b (or + b on Macs) as a keyboard shortcut. The panel must be in focus in order for this to work.

You and your editors can also easily add a stream marker via chat using:

/marker

 

How to View Stream Markers

After you’ve added stream markers, you can view them in the Highlighter tool. When highlighting the Past Broadcast for that stream, you will see your stream markers displayed on the editing timeline. Use your markers to decide which sections of your Past Broadcast would make for engaging highlights or clips for your viewers.

Tip: You can also download a .csv that contains the exact timestamps and descriptions of your stream markers.
