User Manual

Using the websocket extension is a very straight forward process.

  1. Enable the omni.kit.livestream.websocket extensions on Create or Kit based app.

  2. Navigate to the following address with your favorite web browser http://<create/kit ip address>:8011/streaming/client

  3. Press the Connect Button to see your Create or Kit app streamed to the browser

Note

If you have multiple Kit or Create apps running or the streamed app can’t use port 8011 for some other reason there will be a new port generated and posted in the log.
