Permanent Rendezvous links?

I saw a post recently in which someone asked about redirecting short URLs to rendezvous links. But I was just told by support that rendezvous links links expire in 24 hours. I would love if this could at least be expanded to a week expanded to a week to be able to change redirects. It would be really great if there were permanent rendezvous links.

    Certainly, make the feature request. Explain why you want it extended to a week. The developers need to understand the use case even if it seems obvious to you.

  • I did that but its hard making a long pitch with a broken hand. Permanent would be better but even a week would let me update properly.

    Christian Day Sorry about the hand. The developers don't always know how users want to use the software or what their reasoning is. You can send a link to a voice recorded explanation.

    I am injured so I am using dictation. We would like to use I sure URL on our server that we can set to read direct to a rendezvous link. Since we do our shows weekly I week expiration would be much better but I would probably be willing to pay for a non-expiring link so that it would always be easy to allow people to stream in to our show. We never get more then one or two and our wire cast pro allows for 7 on the screen at once. Is there any chance of pushing this up the ladder?

    Christian Day Thanks for the description. Is it possible you can cut/paste that into the form? If you can't, let me know and I'll figure something out.

    Hi all. I know it's an old thread, but I have a use case to share. We run virtual AGMs and getting a board of "older" directors together can be quite challenging, to say the least. They need their IT teams to assist them at times.

     

    Previously, we used Zoom and scraped the audio/video, then rebroadcasted it in Wirecast, but that has quality issues when you do a screen capture of a small area, then send it out at 1080p. With Zoom, you can schedule meetings way in advance, so I could send out one invite link for the "test sessions", and a final meeting invite link for the "actual AGM".

     

    Compound this with multiple events happening throughout the week - how do we generate more Rendezvous links ahead of time to give out to various participants for different events in a week, rather than just a few hours before the event?

     

    Thanks, guys.

      Alex Lam The developers are certainly thinking about some equivalent to longer-lasting or permanent type Rendezvous links. They fully understand the need. 

      Please fill out the form and provide as much detail as you can about your desired workflow. They are most certainly interested in this (it's on our radar) and, by filling out the form, might get back to you with questions.

      I can't say when such might be implemented but the greater the input and the detail, the clearer the understanding they will have in how to meet the user's needs when implementing.

  • CraigS - I'm having the same issue. I need to provide Rendezvous links to my guests at least a few days before our live event, is there any workaround for this 24hrs expiration? This seems rather short-sighted by your engineering team and a major inconvenience when organizing an event.

    Thanks,

    Dave

  • I'm going to fill out this request form as well.  I'm not sure I could find one person that uses Rendezvous that says it benefits them to lose the link after 24hrs.

      Jeff James Perhaps there's some risk of a permanent link being spread?

    • CraigS Perhaps, I suggested the link follow the show file.

      Jeff James said:

      That could still be a risk for a repeated show wouldn't it be?
      Perhaps a link that lasts a set duration?

      Like
  • I like the set duration idea as long as one could set the duration based on need.  For example if I know a specific show will require X amount of tech prior to the show, then in theory the link could be very specific.  Even if I spend a week building the show I might not necessarily need a dedicated Rendezvous link for the build and could get away with a link only lasting 24hrs.  It's when you start adding sophisticated enterprise executives into the mix, it's not a good look to constantly re-send links.   CraigS it would be great if you could give one of your developer buddies a little nudge in our direction.

      Jeff James We're looking into how to go about doing these. Or investigation reference WIRE-15650. There are some interesting thoughts about this and possible directions. I can't say yet but there's interest in some creative improvements around this.

  • I haven't used Rendezvous as much as I'd like as my organization is Teams and Zoom heavy. But in order to keep URL changes to a minimum, I make a short/vanity URL, ex: http://uh.edu/falladdress-live, that is a redirect for wherever I need it to go and update as necessary. With Rendezvous, that would mean updating the redirect within a 24-hour period but my customers have no idea that's what's going on.

    • Iggy Harrison - have you run into any errors or issues with the Rendezvous links using this method? It seems like a good option for me

    • Dave Hatch It works well, I always check it after making a change just to be sure. When there's an issue it's usually from our server (or user error) and not Rendezvous.
