Getting Started is the best way to make collab video. Live on Twitch, recorded for Youtube, produced for television, and everything in between.

If you prefer videos, Theo and Adam filmed one below to help you get started quick! Otherwise you can follow along below Room Setup

Create your room

To get started, sign up for your trial on Ping

The URL you choose during setup is the URL you'll be sending to guests to join your call - will look like:

Having issues with your camera in Ping?

Using an OBS Virtual Camera as your video camera device can fix many, including the Multi-Program Windows Camera Problem™️

Invite a guest

Send the URL you created above to a guest for them to request to join. Whenever a guest tries to join, they will go through three steps:

  1. Sign in with Twitch, Twitter or Google.
  2. Select camera and microphone devices
  3. Click "Request To Join"

When the guest clicks "Request To Join", you will see their request inside of the call in the top right. When you "accept" them, they will join the call

When you hover over a video preview in the call, a menu button will appear. Click it and you will have the option to "copy embed link".

This link should be used in a browser source in your streaming software of choice - more below!

Streaming Software Setup

Ping is compatible with any video software that can treat a website URL as a "source" (i.e. a browser source). This includes:

While all of these solutions work, we highly recommend that you use OBS.

Browser Sources


Using nested scenes for your Ping browser sources can make things much simpler with complex setups

To get Ping into OBS, first create a Browser Source (+ button in "sources" -> "Browser").

Once you have the browser source customizer window open, you have to change THREE THINGS.

1. Add the Embed URL

Paste the embed URL from a guest as shown above. These URLs are static and don't need to be changed after a call ends

For quick embeds, you'll need to add &audio=on to the end of the URL in order to enable audio.

2. Change the resolution to 1920x1080

Even if your guest is using a different resolution, we recommend using 1920 width and 1080 height here to guarantee the simplest scaling and resizing at a 16:9 aspect ration

3. Enable audio control in OBS

In order to have control of the audio from your browser source, you have to enable this checkbox
