You can broadcast what's happening in your domain to other domains in High Fidelity. This feature is useful when you want to host an event in your domain, but cannot support the number of users interested in attending it.

When you broadcast events from your domain, you are transmitting audio and avatar information. For the talk show you want to host, you'll be broadcasting the audio and avatar information of yourself and the users who will be your guests. The users in the receiving domains will be able to see and hear you and your guests.
Your audio mixer conveys all the audio information in your domain. The avatar mixer contains information about how your avatar is moving in a domain. The ports for these mixers are usually randomly assigned and change every time you modify your domain's server settings. To ensure your broadcasting settings will work, you need to assign specific ports to both mixers. Or they will change every time you save any new domain server settings.
You can assign specific ports to your mixers using the command prompt (in Windows) or the terminal (in OS X).
// Launch 1 domain server: ./domain-server // Launch 1 assignment client for each type: // List of the types: // AudioMixerType = 0, // AvatarMixerType = 1, // AgentType = 2, // AssetServerType = 3, // MessagesMixerType = 4, // EntityScriptServerType = 5, // EntityServerType = 6, // replace $TYPE with the type number of the mixer and $PORT with the port ./assignment-client -t $TYPE -p $PORT
Once you assign ports to the mixers, you can add the required broadcasting settings.
