Getting Started with StreamRiot

Ready to learn the ropes? Here’s a few simple steps to help you become a power StreamRiot user.

Speak StreamRiot

Before you get started learning how to use our multi-stream player, these StreamRiot-specific terms will come in handy:

  • Live Stream: A live stream or streaming media is content (like a live-broadcast "feed”) sent in compressed form over the Internet and shown to people called viewers (like you and us), in real time.

  • Multi-Streams:Multi-streams are groups or collections of live streams. Our community can create, customize, share and watch multi-streams directly through the StreamRiot Player.

  • StreamRiot Player (our multi-stream player): To watch multi and live streams, you need a special program like a video player. The StreamRiot Player is a customizable multi-live stream video player and users can watch up to 5 live streams at the same time.

  • eSports: eSports (or electronic sports) is a term used to describe video game competitions and tournaments. Events are often played in front of real people and live streamed over the Internet too.
