What Exactly Stream Button Colors mean?

It is clear that Green indicates a healthy stream and yellow/ red indicates issues in the stream. But what exactly each of these colors means? Ex: At what point it turns from yellow to red? What is red "Stop sign" (the crossed circle)?

I was testing a facebook stream recently. It was turning red time to time and then it was red "stop sign" for 5-6 minutes. But I could view the stream on facebook without any noticeable glitch, buffering. 

Please explain.

System Config:

Wirecast Pro 7.6.0 (64Bit)

Windows 10 Home 


Processor Intel Core i5 3.2GHz

I was playing a pre-recorded clip for this test.

  • They are degrees of issue around reliability which may indicate such things as packet loss for example. Stop Sign means it's not communicating with server at all.  No Connection. Odd that you were seeing something even with Stop Sign.

    It's quite possible the stream was being buffered on the server side. It may take some time to notice a disconnect. It's not clear if you waited longer and what happened.
    You should also update to Wirecast 7.7 as updates include bug fixes.

    Please do report this so we can make sure the indicator is functioning properly.

  • Just to add, If the green turn to orange it means that the queue is building up.
