Setting up custom RTMP streams for popular Livestreaming destinations
Want to use an RTMP stream for uploading or broadcasting your live video stream to various services? Here's how to do it.
Look below for the livestreaming platform or service that you want to use.
Follow the instructions for getting both the RTMP URL and the stream key for that platform/service.
Enter the RTMP URL and the stream key in SlingStudio Console.
RTMP and RTMPS:
SlingStudio Console supports both RTMP and RTMPS streaming protocols. If you're streaming to a service that requires RTMPS, SlingStudio Console "negotiates" this with the streaming service when you set up your stream. Be sure that you have updated to the latest version of SlingStudio Console to take advantage of this. Important note: Facebook requires RTMPS streaming as of May 1, 2019. Again, be sure that you're using the latest version of the SlingStudio Console software to ensure that your stream uses the correct protocol.
Keyframe interval rate
For all streaming services, set the Keyframe interval rate to a one-second interval. (You specify this parameter when you set up your stream within SlingStudio Console.)
