Setup Bluetooth Earbuds for Larix

Bluetooth earbuds are a powerful and easy source to provide your customers with great audio for your classes! It's also quite simple but please be sure you follow these steps each time you stream your class. 

  1. Open your bluetooth case (i.e. Airpods)
  2. Put your earbuds in your ears
  3. Open Larix Broadcaster app
  4. Setup your phone its tripod
  5. Begin Streaming

We cannot stress how important it is that you put your earbuds in before you start streaming. We have noticed that when audio challenges happen, it's likely due to teachers starting the stream and then putting their earbuds in. This can cause audio distortion ranging from a humming sound, a robotic sound, or much static when the teacher is speaking. 

A good practice to adopt:

  1. Open earbuds case 
  2. Put earbuds in 
  3. Close the case
  4. Start your stream

If you are streaming (even a test stream) and you need to take a break (i.e use the restroom), please reverse the practice. 

  1. Stop the stream
  2. Put the earbuds back into their case and completely close

When you're ready to begin your stream again:

  1. Open earbuds case 
  2. Put earbuds in 
  3. Close the case
  4. Start your stream

By default, your Larix Audio settings should be set to Auto. By simply putting in your wireless earbuds (and following the suggestions above), you should be ready to go! However, if you run a livestream test and it seems like the audio is coming from your device mic, here's how you can update your settings in Larix. 

Pro-tip: You may want to check the audio channels in Larix is set to Stereo.  Mono tracks send only one channel for all speakers. However, stereo tracks send two different channels, one for each speaker. See below for how to check this in Larix! 

From your Larix Settings, please choose Audio.

Tap Input

Select Bluetooth Microphone. Click Audio to go back.

If you notice that your Audio Channel is set to Mono, let's update this by tapping on Audio Channels.

Tap Stereo

Up Next, run a Livestream Test with Larix Broadcaster App
