How to live stream on a Custom RTMP link?

Live Streaming on a Custom RTMP Link

If you want to stream to any destination using RTMP URL and a Stream Key, then setting up a custom RTMP social account is the way to go.

On OneStream Live Dashboard, click on Social Platforms and then Add Social Platform.

Click Custom RTMP.

Give your custom RTMP account a name of your choice, for example, My Channel, etc.

Choose your destination platform. If you cannot find it from the drop-down list, choose Custom.

In Server URL field Paste Server or RTMP URL that is provided by your streaming destination. It will start with rtmp:// or rtmps://. If you choose a destination other than Custom, this field will be pre-filled with the correct URL.

Paste Stream Key in the Stream key field. This will also be provided by the streaming service where you will be streaming.

If you wish, modify live streaming ingestion parameters like FPS, Video Bitrate, Keyframes, etc. Leave them to default if you are not sure.

Once all the fields are filled correctly, click Connect.

A pop-up will be visible indicating that your Custom RTMP account has been added successfully, and now this newly configured RTMP social account will appear under listed Destinations.

Now you can schedule a pre-recorded stream or go live in real-time using OneStream Studio or any External RTMP Source on this account.
