With its livestream feature, Rallybound provides the ability for both administrators and fundraisers to add fundraising overlays to their video streams. Livestream overlays include key fundraising information, such as your goal or progress, and they are included in broadcasts of your livestream, displaying live fundraising activity to viewers on any platform.
The livestream feature is a paid upgrade. To configure livestreaming for your organization, please contact our customer success team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An overlay can be accessed for any campaign or fundraising page on a livestream-enabled campaign.
A campaign's overlay is accessed by appending /overlay to the end of your campaign URL. This is what we will refer to as the "Base Overlay URL".
To access the overlay of a personal or team fundraising page, follow the instructions below:
The overlay is highly customizable with URL parameters, allowing you to change the style and contents of the overlay. To customize your overlay, add URL parameters by appending a question mark (?) to your overlay URL and then add your chosen custom parameter. For example, to add a QR code to the overlay URL, add a question mark (?) followed by the QR Code parameter.
Additional parameters should be separated by an ampersand (&) in cases where there are 2 or more custom parameters. For example, to create an overlay that includes parameters for both the QR Code and orientation, your URL would look like this:
Use the chart below to select and specify your overlay parameters.
Please note that many parameters will be included by default. They are identified in the description and are notated in bold. To change or omit these parameters, use the options provided.
Ribbon style overlays provide a solid strip across the screen.
The overlay can be oriented towards placement at the top or bottom of your video.
Includes your logo in the overlay. The logo image pulls automatically from the "Logo" section of the Media Library.
Places your organization name in the overlay.
Type your text, including spaces and special characters, after the equals sign (=) to show this text in the overlay.
Display a QR code in your overlay. Scanning this QR code will bring the viewer straight to your campaign’s donation page.
Display the current amount raised in your overlay. This amount will auto-update.
Display the fundraising goal in your overlay.
Display a progress bar across the overlay. This progress bar will auto-update as your goal is reached.
|mindonation||number input||Display donations over a specified minimum donation amount.|
(Without this parameter, all donations will be displayed.)
Once you've retrieved your overlay and customized it as desired, it's time to add it to your video broadcast. Below we'll include instructions to do so in OBS Studio. Other software options will provide similar flows.
