You can also configure each field yourself. Click Show advanced for more details.

Streaming Server Address

The DNS name of your Presentations2Go streaming server.

Live Recording Publishing Point

The name of your Live TV channel in the Presentations2Go Videoserver, this is usually the same as the encoder name.

Encoder Listen IP Address

The IP address used to communicate with the video server.

Remote control Port & Password

These settings are only used to remote control the application using the Encoder API (e.g. AMX / CRESTON integration).

Encoder Service Address & Port(*)

Usually the service address for publishing will be the same as the server address. The default port used is 443.

Hardware Acceleration

3th generation or higher Intel processors can use QuickSync GPU for video rendering. If you have a 7xx or higher Nvidia card you can also use CUDA GPU video rendering.

GPU rendering will reduce the CPU load.

Check the availability of CUDA or Quick Sync by selecting a mode and pressing Check.


You can not use both Quicksync and CUDA at the same time. If Nvidia is installed vMix will prefer Nvidia for recording.
In this case you can use NVIDIA or None. We have seen cases where None is even better.

Days to keep past schedules

Past schedules are only removed from the stream studio list after this time period. Default value is 90 days.

Schedule Sync Mode

This feature enables you to setup a master - slave setting.

  • Two ways
  • Server to Controller

Default two way sync will be selected. With the Server to Controller setting the Server will become the master and Controller the slave.

Presentations2Go Features key

The features key is automatically updated during application start when you are on-line. The features key unlocks the software based on the features you purchased.

Operation Mode

There are two operation modes

  1. Standard; lecture capture / event mode
  2. Personal Capture.; In Personal Capture mode the stream studio will minimize when you start a recording. Also you can setup a countdown delay.


Communication Buffer Size

This parameter influences the upload speed during publication. The default value is 5120KB.

When you have limited bandwidth and experience the upload is failing or keeps retrying you can decrease this value to e.g. 1024, 512 or even 256.

If you have a stable and excellent bandwidth you can double the value to 10240

Warn before exit

Check this if you want to get a warning popup before the application closes. Keep in mind closing the application will also close vMix.

Show Live Stream Log Window

If you have trouble with live streaming you can monitor the stream log. A separate window will appear as soon as you start live streaming.

Shield Mode

In some cases you might want to disable changing functions in vMix such as the output video, volume. Or accidentally closing input sources etc.

When you turn Shield Mode on transparent window with red border will be placed on top of the vMix window.

NOTE: Although vMix has a lock function it disables stop recording. Scheduled or remote started recordings will keep recording.

Delete after publish

This feature will delete the mp4 file after publishing to an Open Video Server, but will keep the folder with log,  metadata and thumbnail on the local disk.

This way you can still monitor history in the publish window. Publish and deleted files can be recognized with the icon below.

Automatically Check For Upgrade

When you start the Stream Studio the software will check on-line for new releases and pop-up a notification window when a new release is found.

Repair Video After Recording

This feature forces a repair action on the raw video. Use this option on slow disks and/or Windows 7.

Pause keeps original recording duration

Default enabled. When you disable this feature the recording duration will increase while using pause. E.g. when you start with a 100 minute duration and pause for 10 minutes the total recording time would become 110 minutes. Since this would cause issues with automatic scheduled recordings, it is advised to keep this feature turned on.

Disable Canvas

When you start recording with a output source which contains a multi-view with 2 sources (like the side-by-side source), the metadata will be setup to generate slides based on the slidesource value and canvas coordinates. This will result in index slides and the option to split the output in 2 sources in the player.

However, during manual recordings of special events you might want to disable this feature and be free to change output sources as you like without concerning about slide detection an player consequences.
