Streaming to Vimeo via Livestream Studio

Livestream Studio supports streaming to Vimeo Live for all Vimeo Premium and Vimeo Enterprise members.

If you are not logged in already, go to the Stream tab and select Vimeo.

The following window will pop up. Click Sign in to Vimeo.

A browser window will open; you may need to minimize Studio in order to see it. Studio will automatically log into the account that your default browser is logged into. If you are not logged into a Vimeo account, you will be prompted to.

Once you are logged in, you can configure your stream. At the top of the module, give your stream a title and select your streaming quality on the right side.

Since Vimeo Live includes cloud transcoding, we recommend selecting a single bitrate quality.

In the top right corner is a gearwheel icon. Selecting this will allow you to set your aspect ratio and choose your default network to use for streaming. The default network will be used when streaming to any provider you add to Studio unless you specify a different device for a specific provider (shown in a later step).

Next, choose your stream goes under the Select Event menu. You can either create a new event by selecting New Event or stream to a pre-created event. Learn more about streaming to a scheduled event on Vimeo via Studio.

If you have enabled multi-language events, you can choose which incoming language (or audio track) will output to this particular stream by using the Select Language drop-down menu; if you are simulcasting, this allows you to stream to the same provider but select a different language for each stream instance. This menu does not appear if multi-language events are not enabled.

Clicking Advanced Settings will give you the option to use a specific network device to stream to Vimeo; Use default network will use the network device you selected earlier, but you may override that setting here if you wish to use a different connection for Vimeo. This can be handy if you want to keep simultaneous streams on separate networks as a failsafe.

 

Click Hide Advanced Settings to collapse this menu.

When you are ready to start your stream, click Go Live in the bottom right corner.

Your Program output will appear in your chosen event on Vimeo. Note that if you toggled on "Preview stream before going live" prior to going live, you will also need to click Go Live in the upper right corner on your live preview page in order for your viewers to see your stream.

For easy access to your stream, hover your cursor over the Vimeo icon; the URL to your stream will appear there.

When your event is over, end the stream by clicking the red Streaming button in the lower right corner.

 

To log out of Vimeo, click your profile name below the stream title and click Log Out.
