This guide explains to you how to set up vMix correctly so it can be used to stream your content with THEOlive.
Make sure all your sources are set up and in order. As an example, you could add simple colour bars as a source by left-clicking the up arrow next to Add Input, which you can find at the left bottom of the vMIX screen, and select Colour Bars. Similarly, you could add other input e.g. your webcam by selecting Camera or a stream by selecting Stream/SRT. In order to see these options, you'll have to select More in the Add Input menu.
