Core Publisher: How do I add a New Streaming Link to the Triton Player?

How do I add a new streaming link to the Triton Player?

The Triton Player is a streaming player that displays on every page of your site no matter what device is being used: Desktop; Tablet or Mobile Phone.. It was specifically created for use with streams hosted by third-party streaming provider Triton Digital. The Triton Player displays now playing data from Composer 2 for each of your streams with links to play your streams.

Before you move forward with adding a new Triton stream, reach out to Triton Digital and request the Stream Key (Triton “Station Name”) for each stream that you plan to add to the player.
 
To add a new streaming link to your Triton Player
  1. Click on the Configure Corepublisher link in your top grey/black admin bar.
  2. Select Manage Player from the Other Site Management Links section.
  3. Confirm that the Triton Player is selected in the top Site Player section.
  4. Enter the Stream Name of your new stream that you want to display in the Triton Player. This is what the player will display to your visitors for your stream name. For instance, WXXX HD-3 may be commonly known as “WXXX Jazz Across America. You can change this information any time you like. [Link to how change your stream name in Triton Player]
