Spondo is a Pay Per View streaming platform designed to make it easy for you to stream live and on demand from your own website. It’s a browser-based service, so your viewers don’t need to download an app to watch the content. You can even sell content from one of our generic landing pages, or we can create a dedicated landing page with your branding for you.
For now, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get in touch to set up your account.
Once your account has been set up, you can easily set up a live stream or sell your own on-demand content by generating an embed code for your content. If you’re a first-time streamer, our FAQs and how-to videos will walk you through the process step-by-step.
Absolutely. In fact, you can live stream from anywhere as long as you have a strong internet connection.
You can embed the Spondo player on your own website quickly and easily. If you don’t have one, you can live-stream from a Spondo landing page or we can build a customised, dedicated landing page for you.
Viewers must provide an email address when they purchase a ticket to watch your content. Once the content has been purchased, a content owner can access the email addresses and the name of viewers.
If you’re new to streaming, we’ll walk you through your first streaming experience to get you up and running. After their first live stream or setting up their first piece of content on demand, most content owners are able to operate on their own.
We tailor our packages depending on your needs. Our pricing varies depending on several factors including whether your need production services, the amount of content you want to stream and the duration of your streams. To get a quick quote, just drop us an email on email@example.com and we’ll get back to you asap. Once you’re on board, we’ll hold your hand for a little while until you get the hang of it. It’s part of our personalised service to turn you into a super streamer in no time! We’ll also provide you with some helpful hints on marketing your content to increase sales.
All of our packages allow you unlimited Pay Per View live streaming. You can also upload video content for on demand Pay Per View streaming. You’ll get a limited number of free live or on demand streams subject to fair use (sorry guys, we’re not YouTube and we don’t run ads) and technical support to get you up and running. On the financial side, we handle all merchant fees, accounting for and distribution of royalty payments (if required) to organisations such as APRA and when requested, distribution of affiliate payments to registered affiliates of your account.
Yes, it does. We’ll liaise with APRA for sales of live streams to viewers in Australia and New Zealand. We also have arrangements with authorities for sales of live and on demand musical performances to viewers in the USA as well.
We currently use PayPal who charge around 30 cents plus 2.4% per sale.
Content owners set their own price, but we have a minimum of $2.50 per stream. This ensures external costs like merchant fees can be covered and there’s still a reasonable cut for the content owner.
We transfer your net earnings every month to your nominated PayPal Account, provided you have earned more than $50. Otherwise, we transfer your earnings at the end of each quarter.
We have some handy tips and how-to videos to help you get the message out to your audience. If you feel like you need more assistance, there are experts we can refer to help you.
Yes, you can. You can also provide access to viewers who bought a ticket to watch the original live stream.
Not yet, but it’s on our development roadmap. The more people we get asking for it, the higher a priority it becomes.
You can stream from a digital camera, laptop or smart phone using either a hardware encoder or if you’re not a techy, a compatible piece of software such as OBS (FREE for Mac and PC). We can talk you through it.
Yes, you can. You can geo-block any country you choose.
We’re not a set and forget platform. We’re here to help you and it’s what we pride ourselves on. We’ll walk you through your first streaming experience to make sure you get it right. We’re also available to troubleshoot any ongoing issues for you or your viewers. You’ll speak to a real person. In Australia.
Upload speeds need to be at least 2 Megabits per second (Mbps) to ensure a good quality stream. The higher the quality of stream you are looking to send out, the higher your upload speed needs to be.
Subject to your upload speeds, you can stream in various resolutions including HD (1920 x 1080).
Yes, we can. If you need a production team to make your stream look even better, we can send out some of our own people or source experts from around the country to help you.
You don’t need one, but if you have one you can probably use it to live stream through Spondo. We can talk you through that as well.
Absolutely, just email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
