During the time of Covid-19 there was been a big request to be working from home. With that in mind, I'm trying to find the best way to output just my program monitor to clients and have a complete live conversation with them and to change the workflow to be completely remote instead of clients being in my edit suite.
I've tried using Youtube live and OBS which I was kicked off of due to copyright issues on music (even though this has been the best option thus far). I tried Zoom which didn't have the best playback for both audio and video. Frame.io is great in terms of working off links but if we really want to work remotely live, are there better solutions to this? Does Vimeo Pro work better for others or if there's any other websites that better fit this situation, I would love to hear about your remote workflows.
Thank you in advance.
Hey bud! I've been trying to do the same thing since April and I got lucky using a program called Kast to stream Premiere Pro from my computer and then using Zoom from my phone to chat with the client.
Kast is meant for watching movies with a big group of people but it works great streaming Premiere Pro. The quality is pretty decent since the free version goes up to 720p, but the latency is very close to real-time. (I believe a Premium Subscription gives you 1080p)
I also tried OBS streaming on YouTube live but the latency makes it impossible to recieve notes while I edit and it crashes almost everytime since it's very demanding in terms of RAM. I only have 16GB. If that's ok for you though, try having your stream Unlisted instead of Public so you don't get copyright strikes lol.
Kast was working perfectly for 3 weeks but then Kast started crashing after a few minutes after playing the sequence on Premiere, so let me know how it goes for you if you decide to try Kast.
I'm currently editing a feature film, so it's being extra demanding on the system, but if you're working on a smaller project you might be fine.
Hope it works out man! Hit me up with any questions.
That's great advice. I'm just curious if anyone has tried using Teams on Windows. It makes sharing a desktop/ individual monitor simple, gives you voice and face images (with a webcam). It's the videoconferencing solution we're using -- but we're not doing real-time editing in Premiere during these meetings; we are able to play pre-recorded videos and share desktops while running business apps (Word, Chrome browser, Powerpoint, etc.).
Hi All. We take care of a ton of editorial boutiques and VFX shops in NYC. We've been developing and beta testing a solution that should fit your needs. Happy to help anyone that needs a good answer for remote viewing. If you'd like to discuss further please let me know.
Hey Noah I'd love to chat about this!
How can I contact you offline?
Hi Noah I'd like to ask you few questions, how can I contact you?
Hi Noah, I'd love to know more about the Beta version as well. Is it available now? Where can I find out more? Thanks!
maybe searching for peer to peer network services will help. A long time ago gamers used to use peer to peer stuff to play multiplayer games ( live ). That changed when software companies discovered they could 'charge money' for the network for players to use ( get ad revenue, whatever). That's why livestream is here now for gamers.
Peer to peer required a 'host' ( guy who sets up the session) and then those with the ip address and passwords could ask to 'join' and the host would accept them. So, maybe 4 players could join without degrading the latency too much ( you should ask what the internet gives your team members so you know who the slowest person is when they join ). There's programs to ping others to know that number.
That's the basics, no matter who supplies it... and unfortunately adobe can't do that cause it would cost a lot of money and hardware for nothin... and they are not in business to make no money.
