Part of the addictiveness of this app is that users can recommend to other users that they watch a particular scope, sending a push notification to everyone’s phones, letting them know that the scope is on RIGHT NOW and to get watching straight away.There is some urgency to the request, because you can only participate fully if you watch in real-time and are one of the first watchers.Many critics term Meerkat as the biggest and the fierce competitor of Periscope.

If you use Wirecast as an encoder, we recommend Wirecast Cam for i OS 8 for maximum compatibility. Whichever encoder you use, you should locate the Stream URL and Stream Name. Copy your unique Stream Name (for example – [email protected]) and put it after the Stream URL. The last part will be filling in the Username and Password fields.
In this example, we’ll use the ‘Other RTMP Encoder’ tab. These will be your login and password, which you saw under step 2 of this guide.
Because of ideal Q&A format, many people use Periscope as a way to teach things, although there are plenty of people hosting meditation scopes, scopes from tourist destinations, concerts and other similar things.
Lots of scopers will also ask their audience where they’re from, or take quick polls while they’re discussing things, making sure their audience feels valued.
