Let’s get your questions answered 🫡

What does AnywhereSeat use to power streaming and video hosting?

We utilize Vimeo Enterprise, so you can get a $10k+ value of quality streaming and video playback for free.

What are RTMP keys?

The easiest way to think about RTMP keys is like an address on an envelope. When mailing a letter, you provide the recipient's address to ensure proper mail routing to them. RTMP keys work similarly: you insert them into your live streaming software so they know to route your video stream into AnywhereSeat where your patrons will be watching and not elsewhere on the internet.

What are the requirements for uploading a video?

We recommend exporting videos in 1080p or 720p. Mbps for a 1080p video should be 10 - 20, while 720p should be 5 - 10. All video file formats are accepted, such as MP4 and MOV. We also recommend keeping your video files 10 GB or less. Please plan on uploading your video 12 - 24 hours before your event's opening time to ensure everything looks good.

What are the recommended settings for a live stream?

If you're planning on live streaming through AnywhereSeat using RTMP keys, here are the settings we recommend: The best configuration for the encoder is:Codec H.264, Maximum 1920x1080 resolution, Maximum 5000kbps bitrate (recommended 3500-4500kbps), Maximum 30 fps, Key frame interval every 3-7 seconds. If you use encoding software on a Mac or Windows PC, we recommend keeping your encoding software on a separate machine. Other tasks you may need to do, such as previewing and monitoring your stream, could potentially be interrupted if you’re also running encoding software. Often, doing all of these on the same system can cause CPU percentage to spike, impacting the quality of your stream and causing other tasks to lag as well.

How much does streaming with AnywhereSeat cost?

AnywhereSeat charges a simple 5% + $0.75/virtual ticket passed onto your patrons when they pay using a card. For example, on a $10 ticket, the fee is $1.25 — your patron pays $11.25, we take the $1.25 to cover card processing, and you receive the full $10. There are no fees on comp or $0 tickets and no setup costs, annual fees, or hidden charges. So, AnywhereSeat is 100% free to your organization/group. (You can also choose to absorb the fee instead.)

Can I use any live streaming software with your RTMP keys?

As long as your live stream software allows custom streaming URLs and RTMP keys, you can broadcast right into AnywhereSeat.

Don't just take our word for it

There's a reason 2,000+ organizations throughout the U.S. — including K-12, colleges, community/regional theaters, and performing arts centers — trust Ludus.
Ken A.
Hermantown, MN
Hermantown High School

“It feels as though Ludus has been part of rehearsals and has made sure opening night goes smoothly. They operate the way every company should, by standing behind their product and supporting their customers.”

Ken S.
Odessa, TX
Permian High School

“I know I've said this in the past, but I just have to say it again....Ludus is incredible. Thank you for creating such a user-friendly and professional-looking/operating system. I love it. It's a lot of fun to use!”

Trent K.
Theatre Director
Capterra Review

“I have been blown away by the quality of the work. The customer service is out of this world. Most questions are answered within just a few minutes and all of my issues have been handled professionally and expediently.”

Storm Z.
Department Chair/Choir Director
Capterra Review

“In terms of actual features that were game changers for our performing arts department: ability to create your own venue map, online reservations and payment, variable priced seating, ability to pass on credit card fees to patrons or to absorb them, dynamic social distancing options, ability to track sales and proceeds easily, fast/accurate payment, and a culture of continuous improvement."

Amy J.
Teacher/Director
Capterra Review

“Exceptional. Customer service is always on top of things and extremely helpful. The team is always working to stay current with the needs of the times we are living in - for example, developing a way to socially distance seats as tickets sell. Overall, I have consistently been impressed with this product, team, and innovation. Not once have I ever thought twice about using Ludus.”

Kate V.
Registrar/Office Manager
Mountain Top Music Center

“We had extensive demos from both Ludus and Vendini (now AudienceView), and were impressed with the flexibility and responsiveness of the Ludus system and their willingness to listen to and respond to our questions.”

Chris C.
Auditorium Manager
Capterra Review

“One of the main reasons we went with Ludus was customer support. I checked into the company and their reputation before we went with their package and I could not be happier. The Ludus support team is quick to answer questions and solve problems.”

Megan S.
Director
Capterra Review

“AMAZING! The people who helped with all my questions were fabulous, it was SUPER easy to use and set up and sell tickets online. If it wasn't for Ludus, we wouldn't have had a drama season in the spring of '21 because we weren't allowed to sell tickets in person at our school. I would use them again in a heartbeat!”

Ashley B.
Portage, MI
Portage Central Theatre

“My experience with Ludus has been top notch. My staff and I have found that it offers much more flexibility and ease of use in comparison to our previous program. Additionally, customer service is fast and friendly.”

Josh H.
Teacher/Director
Capterra Review

“Ludus is an intuitive product that is easy to learn and implement. They are forward thinking and always finding new ways to improve, even in a global pandemic. On top of it all, their customer service is second to none. I would strongly recommend Ludus to any school or arts organization.”

Kristin M.
Kalamazoo, MI
MCC Overbrook Theater

“I am so blown away at the customer service. That kind of support in addition to a free program is hard to come by! This has made a world of difference in making my life easier as the box office manager. So glad to have found you!”

Kylie S.

“We are a small rural school district. We can't afford super expensive ticketing systems. Ludus's user experience is unmatched and provides top-notch services for the least amount of monetary investment possible.”
