Recommended video settings for live streaming via OneStream

It is highly recommended that a gap of at least 10 minutes is given between the time when you set up the schedule and when the stream actually has to go live. This gives the system enough time to optimize the video.

Recommended Video Settings

Though OneStream is capable to handle most kinds of mp4, mov, m4v, webm and mkv video file, we recommend the following video settings for best live streaming results when streaming via OneStream.
