Step 3: Find your connection details in Airtime Pro.

You will need to enter the connection details from your Airtime Pro instance into Rocket Broadcaster in order to begin your live broadcast.

In Airtime Pro, you can find your connection details by selecting Settings > Streams > Master DJ Connection Details.

If you are a DJ connecting using Rocket Broadcaster, your Username and Password will be the same as you use to log in to Airtime Pro. Note that as a DJ, you can only log in and broadcast live during shows that are assigned to you.

Step 4: Enter your connection details into Rocket Broadcaster.

In Rocket Broadcaster, click on the ‘Broadcast’ menu at the top of the interface, then select ‘Streams’.
