How can I setup a photo slideshow as the Off Air content for my channel?

You can now add a slideshow to display as your Off Air Content. Viewers will see this if they go to your channel and you are not broadcasting. 

There are a few things to know before you upload an image:

  • It is best to upload JPG images that conform to the 16:9 aspect ratio so they will fill the entire player window. 640 X 360 or 1280 X 720 sized images work well.
    If you cannot resize/crop the image to these dimensions you will see black bars on the sides.
  • Images should be under 1 MB in size.
  1. Login into your account and go to your dashboard overview. 
  2. Click on Off Air from the options under channel settings. off_air_dashboard_overview.png

  9. Once your image is in the left box, click Save at the bottom of the screen. 
  10. You're done! Now the image you saved will be what a viewer sees when the channel is off air. 

Note: You can add one image or multiple images if you want to make a slide show. Follow the same steps to add more images before saving. 

A few other features:

  • You can also select an image from the Web and paste the URL in the box.
  • If you want to change the order of the slide show you can drag the images up or down.
  • You can select and image and then use the "Delete" option to delete it
  • Your changes will not be saved until you click the "Save" button
