Updated 8/6/12: IBroadcast channels can now be used in user profiles, blog posts, or added as a Video using the player-only embedding instructions below.
Updated 5/7/12: You no longer have to manually tweak the embed code to get the full player + chat... IBroadcast now generates both widgets for you automatically. See step 3
My name is Sam Rahimi, CEO of IBroadcast.TV - the video platform introduced to you earlier this week by Patrick Chapelle (see http://creators.ning.com/forum/topics/introducing-ibroadcast) - if you haven't read this thread, please do, as it contains instructions for setting up your channel on IBroadcast.
Briefly - IBroadcast lets you easily create and share your broadcast with the world. Create a playlist from anything on YouTube or any live stream on Justin.TV - and turn it into a synchronized broadcast just like ordinary TV (minus the commercials.) This allows your visitors to hang out in the chat room and socialize while experiencing the content together - and if you've got a Ning Network, you can now embed any IBroadcast channel along with the chat and social features in a page on your site.
1. Create an IBroadcast channel by going to http://ibroadcast.tv and signing in with Facebook. If you have YouTube videos shared on your timeline, your broadcast will be created automatically from these. To add more videos (pretty much anything on YouTube), create a customized profile for your channel, and rearrange your playlist, go to "Broadcast Studio" once you're logged in. You can use HTML in the channel profile if you wish to add links back to your Ning network or anywhere else.
2. (optional but recommended) - After customizing your profile, like and share the channel on Facebook using the buttons provided on the channel page...
3. Get the embed code by clicking the "Embed" button underneath the video player. Choose from a video player only (560x315; can be resized) and a full sized player with chat and social discovery features (800x900; fixed size.) Check http://anrdjunion.com/ and http://natewalker.com for examples of the player only; http://anrdjunion.com/page/a-r-dj-union-t-v, http://kingdomzx.biz/page/tv, http://hhiaclan.com/page/hhiatv-by-i-broadcast for the full player + chat.
Have fun, good luck, and I'm here to help out and answer any questions...
Funny. They added the chat at my request. Don't know if that's possible, but I want to respond to these questions in another comment.
I know all of you have questions and concerns about iBroadcast, CEO Sam Rahimi and his team are working on something major right now, and I'm sure they would appreciate a little more patience. It won't be very long before they return to respond to your questions and resolve your issues.
I just want to be clear that I am not trying to rush the folks at iBroadcast. I just wanted to voice some ideas early while they are still putting this together. I don't mind if it takes awhile to address these, I just wanted to make sure they were getting the messages.
I am not against chat, I was just unsure what could be done if someone starts posting links to their channel or spam on our chat area and stuff like that. Also, I am concerned that too many folks will be clicking on the icons and be taken to facebook or iBroadcast.
Overall, I think that Sam and the folks at iBroadcast have done an amazing job so far. I am happy with the product and see its possibilities. My comments and any concerns/criticisms should be seen as constructive. Thanks for addressing our comments Patrick.
I wasn't insinuating you were being impatient or anything, I was addressing everyone here, and wanted to assure you all that things will be moving along shortly. I'm looking forward to the improvements to iBroadcast myself, and am eager to see it reach its full potential. =)
Hey Patrick hope everything's well my friend. I Love the Beta, but too many people are waiting on replies about REAL Issue's with limited or NO response at all. I haven't seen one update to this post or real reply. we're not anxious, we are just Waiting in Suspense..lol Sam, can we get an update friend?...lol I really love the Beta, just wish we had a date, or some tips/or How-to Videos on things we've been asking about. Please pass the word along Patrick. Tammy Thanks So Far for ALL the replies Sis! Blessings to You and Sam, and the rest of the team. You Tube has got a BIGGGG! Problem On their hands with the release on the New Improved I Broadcast.TV 2nd Phase! All my Glitch problems have been coming from Youtube, and NOT the software. Thanks Guys.

Maybe i could help you
Sorry I just saw this but on my network!
I love this page and would like something like this one
I sent you a pvt.Message, just give meyour Broadcast url or ID
Only that all i need, could even make it a little bigger for ning, cos this size i have was for facebook and i had to keep it under 810px to fit on facebook like hier:https://www.facebook.com/pages/hhiaclan/109602169159757?sk=app_1332...
Will amend the html code to your taste & need and could add an Ad from your sponsor like we did with def-shop.com and then show you how to iframe or diretly apply the html code on your ning network.
only problem with this is u cant control the volume ,or in other words the members who dont want to hear whats playing cant turn off the volume
