Bringing Other Streams into Livestream Studio

If you have a video source streaming to another destination, you can pull that stream into your Livestream Studio as a remote camera source.

Navigate to the Inputs tab in the lower left corner. Select Add Input > Stream. There will be a few options here.

RTMP Server is a different way to bring a stream into Livestream Studio and is covered here.

Livestream Event allows you to pull in a stream from an event on as a remote camera source. You must have the login credentials for the account hosting the event you wish to bring in.


After adding a Livestream Event as an input, it will appear in the bottom of your inputs list and in your multi-view. You can hover your cursor over the name (e.g. "Livestream evnet 1") and click the pencil icon that appears to edit it.


Select the corresponding gearwheel to the right to configure the input.

Log into the Livestream account that's hosting the stream you wish to bring in.

By default, Studio can detect which of your events are live and bring it in automatically. Alternatively, you can choose an event manually.

You can also bring in streams via RTMP, RTSP, and Zixi playback URLs, which can be provided by the stream's hosting platform. Select the protocol your stream is using from Inputs > Add Input > Stream.


Enter the appropriate playback URL for accessing the stream into the Stream URL text box, then press the Enter key.

The stream will appear in the module. Expected latency will vary depending on connectivity strength, but will likely hover around ten seconds.
