Third-Party System Requirements for StreamSpot Sync Automation

StreamSpot Sync is StreamSpot's patented automation software that allows for 100% automatic, unattended broadcasts based on your broadcast schedule.  Every StreamSpot encoder is built with StreamSpot Sync already installed and configured.

StreamSpot Sync can be installed on third-party computers running Windows 7, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10. (Windows 10 S, and Windows Server Editions, are not supported.)

Your PC must meet the following specifications and configuration parameters:

Windows 7 SP1 or greater (64-bit)

Intel Core i3* / AMD Ryzen 3 or better
4 GB
DirectX 10.1 Compatible GPU / Integrated Graphics

Windows 10 (64 bit)
Intel Core i5 / AMD Ryzen 5 or better
8 GB
DirectX 11 Compatible GPU / Integrated Graphics

* For i3 systems specifically, a Gen 4 Quad-Core CPU is recommended

  • To ensure a smooth installation: Please create a new local user on the Windows computer. Make the username and password 'streamspot' - and make sure the user is an admin. If you aren't sure how to do this, we can help set up a new user once we connect.
  • Must be a dedicated computer used only for streaming
  • Must by a physical machine - virtualized OS instances or virtual machines are not supported
  • StreamSpot's remote support software must be installed
  • Third-party anti-virus, firewall, policy-management, and other security programs must be disabled
  • The Windows user-account must be an administrator, and must be a local account. Domain-user-accounts are incompatible.
  • If your computer is on a managed-domain, or otherwise managed with remote end-point software or policies - you / your I.T department will need to disable any group-policy settings and / or management software that could potentially restrict system access in any way.
  • Any cloud-synchronization tools such as Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, or Dropbox, should be unlinked and de-activated on the PC, as they can cause the installation to fail.
  • You must know the password to your Windows account. The PIN is not sufficient.

 Software that is known to conflict with StreamSpot Sync:

  • PTZOptics Camera Control Plugin (Direct Access Version)
  • ANY anti-virus, security, or end-point management software

IMPORTANT: It is the customer's responsibility to provide a machine in a suitable state to install StreamSpot Sync, this means making sure that the requirements listed above are met. If it is determined that your machine does not meet the requirements above - agents might declare the machine unfit to run StreamSpot Sync and will ask you to re-schedule once you have a PC in a suitable state for installation.
