Streaming via RTMP and Zixi

You can stream directly from the Livestream Studio software to other services using any RTMP server (e.g. UStream, Wowza, Akamai, etc.) as well as Zixi. Both use-cases have very similar interfaces.

Under the 'Stream' tab, click the streaming method you plan to use (RTMP or Zixi).

RTMP streaming is supported through the FME3.0 plugin. 


With RTMP streaming, you need to get the RTMP URL from your streaming provider in order for Studio to know where to send the stream. Zixi provides a similar URL.


Paste the appropriate URL into the' Stream URL' field.

Clicking 'Advanced Settings' will show additional options, such as importing the configuration via FMLE, selecting a stream quality, enabling authorization, and choosing which network to stream over (if there are multiple available).

Zixi users will see the stream quality option and the ability to enter their Zixi password under their ‘Advanced Settings.’

Once you have configured your URL settings, click 'Done.' You can configure further settings for your stream such as a title, total streaming bitrate, and aspect ratio. Click 'Go Live' when you are ready to start streaming.
