Streaming to Popular Destinations via Custom RTMP

With the introduction of custom RTMP streaming in OneStream you can stream your pre-recorded videos almost anywhere as long as they have a valid RTMP URL and streaming key. Make sure RTMP URL/Key is valid at the time of streaming! 

Here we will explain how to set up streaming for some popular live streaming destinations via OneStream:

Open OneStream dashboard
Add Accounts
Click Configure under Custom RTMP

Following window opens. Add the following information. 

Platform Name can be anything you choose
Server or RTMP URL starts with rtmp:// or rtmps:// which can be obtained from the destination where you plan to stream. Check below to get RTMP URL for some popular platforms.

Facebook Event

Create an event on Facebook.
Visit  https://www.facebook.com/live/create and click "Create Live Stream"

Copy the RTMP URL and streaming key to OneStream custom RTMP social account settings.



Click Connect to OneStream.
After you have scheduled a video for this RTMP social account come back to https://www.facebook.com/live/create.
