Manage streams using the VMcast Control Center

Remotely check your stream statuses and change the loops playing on one or all of your VMcast TVs.

Start by signing into your account on ViewMedica.com. If you don’t remember how to sign in, see our logging in tutorial.

  1. From your dashboard, click the “VMcast Control Center” link.

  2. New streams are highlighted in gold and say “Setup Stream.” You need to complete the setup in order to use it on your device. See our tutorial on setting up a new stream.

  3. Next to each stream code is a color status indicator.

    RED (OFFLINE)

    Offline means the device used for this stream cannot be reached over the internet. There could be a Wi-Fi problem, the VMcast app may not be running, or someone may have turned the device off.

    YELLOW (IDLE)

    Idle means the device used for this stream is on and connected to the internet with the VMcast app running, but VMcast is in menu mode, waiting for someone to click play on a loop.

    GREEN (PLAYING)

    Playing means the device used for this stream is on and connected to the internet with the VMcast app running and the stream playing a loop.

  4. Edit an active stream by clicking the “Edit Stream” button. This will let you build your stream layout. You will need to set a loop for the broadcast area. You can also set loops for the top, side, and bottom frames of the TV. See our tutorial for how to build your stream layout to help customize your VMcast.

  5. Additional icons next to the “Edit Stream” button allow users to group streams together, preview the stream, change the stream settings and delete the stream from your VMcast service.

More stream management options

See our tutorial on putting streams into folders to better organize long lists of streams and grouping streams to manage the same content for multiple streams.
