You can host a livestream conveniently on a mobile device through the Sauce Studio app provided by Mobidoo.
Check if the network environment is stable before starting.
Check the streaming network environment in advance and use the most stable network to host a livestream (e.g., Wired, Wi-Fi, etc.)
For stable streaming on mobile devices, use Galaxy S20, iPhone 12 or later models.
Step 1. Visit <https://fast.com> and check the Internet speed.
STEP 2. Click Show more info.
Step 3. Check the Loaded information under Latency to determine the Internet connection status as shown in the table.
|Internet Connection Status
|Great streaming environment
|100 to 200 ms
|Acceptable streaming environment
|200 to 300 ms
|Possible intermittent disconnection with dropped frames
|Unstable; connection not recommended
- Check the mobile device network connection method. A wired connection is recommended.
- For a wired connection, you need the following equipment. If you are using a wired connection, disconnect Wi-Fi and mobile data, and select the Ethernet connection in the mobile device's Settings menu.
If a wired connection is not available, select one among Wi-Fi or LTE/5G to connect. Check the upload speed on(<https://fast.com/) > and select the network connection method with the fastest speed.
If you are using Wi-Fi, disconnect mobile data (e.g., LTE, 5G, etc.), and if you are using mobile data, disconnect Wi-Fi connection.
However, do not use public Wi-Fi as the network speed may be slow. Wi-Fi that can be connected privately is recommended.
Since the battery affects heat generation and processing speed, you need to pay attention to it when hosting livestream on a mobile device. Check the details below.
Is the battery fully charged?
When the battery is low, the mobile device may switch to low-power mode or be discharged, which may affect the quality of live streaming or cause interruption. Maintain a battery level of at least 50% while on air and ensure a sufficient battery level by using a charging cable or battery pack.
Is the phone case removed?
Using a phone case generates heat, which slows the processing speed and increases battery usage. Therefore, using the mobile device without the case is recommended for livestream.
Does your device drain the battery slowly?
It is recommended to check if you have the latest device or a device that drains the battery slowly for stable streaming. See the details below to optimize your smartphone settings for the livestream.
- Use the Do Not Disturb mode or Airplane mode. If you get a phone call during the livestream, the livestream is interrupted and cannot be resumed. Make sure to turn on the Do Not Disturb mode or Airplane mode.
- Block emergency alert texts. They may interrupt the livestream.
- Turn on the Silent mode. Mute all notifications of various applications such as Message and KakaoTalk. Every sound is transmitted through the livestream and also recorded in VOD.
- Disable the Low Power mode. The battery level must be at least 90% before streaming live.
- Disable Bluetooth.If you are not using a Bluetooth microphone, turn Bluetooth off.
- Close all running applications other than the streaming app.Close all applications except for apps related to the livestream, so there are no apps running in the background.
- Do not use the mirroring function.Using mirroring during streaming may generate heat. Check if the function is disabled.
