Hello, I am trying to use AMS to conduct a live school news broadcast. Currently I can view the stream using `localhost,` but how can I figure out what IP or DNS address to use to make the stream public. While I can stream on the same network the viewers are on, I'd like to make it visible to anyone.

    Are you streaming from your own PC?!


    For local tests, you can get your ip address by opening a command line and running ipconfig.


    Assuming that your PC's firewall doesn't block the relevant ports, then others on your network could see it by replacing "localhost" with that ip.


    For release... you may want to move your server.
