Roku Adaptive VOD Bitrate Streaming
Being able to stream Internet content to a television is a big feature in the IPTV industry and is growing more popular each day. Roku is just one of the many ways that viewers are able to watch their favorite shows and more at home and online right through their television.
While some viewers may have the Internet capacity and more to watch extremely High Definition content, not everybody does. This is why TikiLIVE has upgraded their Video On Demand streaming to allow for adaptive bitrate capabilities on Roku. With this new adaptive streaming, the video starts out at a lower bitrate and continually adjusts to the actual speed of the viewers Internet connection, ensuring that they will have a smooth and pleasant viewing experience.
Broadcasters follow the normal uploading method for adding content to Roku; we still make it as simple as ever. Use our built-in Monster Encoder program, encode the file for Roku and HTML5 compatibilities, and you’re done! Once the videos are encoded, it will be availalbe on the TikiLIVE Roku channel for your viewers to enjoy.
To make the process easier, TikiLIVE has added a bandwidth calculator to the upgrade page so users can know exactly what package they will need. Users can place their statistics in the designated area, providing their expected viewers, broadcasting and viewing bitrate, plus broadcasting time, and the calculator will provide them with the recommended package. If someone is unsure, this tool takes out all the worry, calculating the required package based on the broadcaster’s expectations.
For users who want to host their own live Pay Per View events or VOD content, even channel subscriptions, TikiLIVE offers this capability for anyone to use. Make a profit on live sports events, premium movies, or monthly subscriptions for exclusive access. This is just another great way to create a revenue source off of content that users already have access too.
Once the event is finished and PayPal is one of the most secure e-commerce businesses used across the world. This is why we have integrated PayPal into our payment system for users purchasing content or subscriptions, and just recently for broadcasters receiving earnings for the PPV and subscription content, making instant funds transfer simple.
HD Wave for Mac
Mac computers from Apple are becoming a growing favorite among users everywhere. People are using Apple products more and more so TikiLIVE has taken the step forward and we have developed our own HD Wave for Mac broadcaster. Now Mac users won’t have to resort to third-party broadcasting programs and can stick with the same application that is built directly into the software, providing you with a seamless streaming experience.
TikiLIVE is dedicated to keeping up with the newest capabilities of technology and as long as these features keep coming, we will keep improving. For more information or any questions you may have about our services, feel free to fill out our contact us form, or call our office at 305.289.4557.
The HD Wave for TikiLIVE has always allowed its users to broadcast in High or Standard definition through its simple to use interface. Previously the HD Wave had only been available for Windows computers, leaving Mac users to resort to third party broadcasting software to stream from Apple computers, but no more.
Just recently, TikiLIVE released their first mobile application available from the Apple App Store and Android’s Google Play store. Now we’ve made the advancement into desktop applications for Mac users, available for download right from the Mac App Store.
No Proprietary Equipment Needed
The HD Wave for Mac allows TikiLIVE users to stream quality content without the need of any expensive broadcasting equipment normally required with other programs or platforms. To get started, all the broadcaster needs is a powerful Mac and a camera connected to their computer, being either an iMac, Mac Mini, or a MacBook. To get started, users can
- Download the HD wave Live Broadcaster for Mac from the App Store or from our website
- Plug in their video source
- Select their channel
- And start broadcasting LIVE!
The desktop application allows broadcasters to publish up to 1080i HD video quality, streaming events and content live right to the viewers. The HD Wave software captures video in real time via Thunderbolt input and even automatically records the stream to the users’ TikiLIVE account for later access.
The HD Wave and TikiLIVE
Combined with the power of the TikiLIVE platform, broadcasters can stream content from their Mac computer with the HD Wave and utilize various features from TikiLIVE to enhance viewer experiences. Streams may be viewed using Roku Set Top Boxes, web browsers, Flash-based players, and HTL5 mobile devices.
Not only does TikiLIVE have desktop broadcasters for PC and Mac users now, but we also released an application that allows broadcasters to stream video and audio live right from their mobile Apple devices. Simply download the app, configure your channel, and you’re broadcasting on the go! For more details, you can see our page here.
Whether you’re streaming TV stations, movies, faith-based services, sports networks, game tournaments, or general IPTV content, the HD Wave deliver it all from your Mac computer for anyone in the world to watch.

This will allow for easer design customizations for our white-labeled client’s. Responsive Flash and html5 video players were now added, allowing for the most optimal player size on any device. The TikiLIVE platform is always evolving to keep up with technology. A responsive design means that the TikiLIVE broadcasters are able to reach a wider audience on multiple devices. The best part is that with a responsive design, there is only one site to manage.
Going Mobile on the Internet
The way we view and interact with content via the Internet has changed in today’s on-the-go world. Internet enabled handheld devices such as smart phones and tablets, are now surging beyond market expectations. The TikiLIVE platform is tooled up and ready for this growth. Mobile devices make up about 12% of our site traffic and growing.
If you are excited with the new look and “responsive” design of TikiLIVE V 4.0 platform and have questions on the platform feel free to contact us at 305.289.4557 or via our contact form.
So what’s new?
TikiLIVE version 4.0 is built on the bootstrap standard pioneered by Twitter to simplify the responsive nature of sites for improved usability for tablets and mobile devices alike. The new design also offers a updated simple to use interface that incorporates a homepage image slider for marketing and sale opportunities for channels, videos, subscriptions and additional services. The overall user experience is greatly improved while also allowing reduced delivery times to white label sites.
We have eliminated most of the information needed to sign up allowing users to add that information later if they so choose. With Open Id though Facebook users can now sign up and log in with their Facebook accounts.
In version 4.0 we wanted to make it as social as possible. Users can now make comments with Facebook allowing comments to be posted to users wall and seen in their feeds. We have also added social sharing button for Facebook, Twitter and Google + making it easier for broadcasts and VOD to be shared.
In the past versions of TikiLIVE our chat system was flash based requiring the adobe flash plugin. The new chat system on 4.0 was created using Node.js allowing it to work on just about every media rich web enabled device without the need of a plugin.
We have offered live broadcasting to Facebook for sometime now and in 4.0 we have added integration that allows our player to be embedded on twitter wall and feeds.
Page markup in v 4.0 has been updated so that videos and events will now be displayed in Google video search results and other search engine page results for increase traffic to broadcasters content.
We have updated both our Flash and HTML5 video player making them both fully responsive, lightweight and now with video thumbnail preview for embedded players.
We have updated the set top box module in 4.0 to now stream channel content to Apple Tv with Airplay from IOS devices such as iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
9. New ticket purchasing interface and Additional merchant integration
Ticket and subscription purchasing is now done with our newly added shopping cart. We have also added Additional merchant integration with Authorize.net. This allows users to utilize direct payments via credit card on site rather than using PayPal during checkout.

Power over ethernet or poe is the process of passing electrical power along with data on Ethernet cabling. This allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electrical power to devices eliminating the need of a standard power outlet.
What is the benefit?
In some cases such as large ships and oil rigs that would like for their cabins to have mainland broadcasts, but were built with very few power outlets and equipped with an Ethernet drop in each cabin. POE is a much cheaper alternative than adding more outlets.
TikiLIVE and HTML5 set top box
TikiLIVE is Eyepartner’s fully white label flagship HD iPTV platform that is packed with everything needed to broadcast stunning HD and SD video over the Internet. Our custom branded HTML5 set top box that is capable of POE works as a content receiver for viewing on HDTV’s it offers a TV Guide page for scheduled programing, a live page for listing all live channels and a VOD page for streaming paid or free movies.
The POE set up
The setup is very simple all that is needed is a poe router or switch to enables the passing of power and data along Ethernet cables.
Next we will need a poe splitter this splits the power from the data for this we use a $16 Poe Splitter – By TP-Link (model TL-PoE150S), Lastly we use a DC converter to convert the 2.1mm x 5.5mm DC Plug on the splitter to the 1.35mm x 3.5mm plug size needed for our HTML5 white label Set Top Box.
For blue printing of full build outs of larger poe and content streaming solution based on your needs contact us via our contact form or by calling us at (305) 289-4557
