Modified on Thu, 19 May 2022 at 06:41 AM

RTMPS is a streaming protocol that is used for the transmission of audio, video, and other data. Zuddl provides a secure streaming option that lets you stream videos from external sources such as an encoder.

To enable RTMPS Link:
  1. Go to Stage Setup > Functionality.

This generates three resources that need to be used to stream external video into your stage.
  1. An RTMPS Link: This links your streaming server with Zuddl’s RTMPS secure entry point.
  2. Main Stream Key: is used along with the Zuddl’s RTMPS Link required by the streaming source to identify the Zuddl as the destination. This should be pasted onto a corresponding field on the upstream streaming application such as a third-party encoder. It is highly recommended to store this key safely as anyone with this key can transmit content to your event.
  3. Backup Stream Key: This functions the same as Main Stream Key, this is the backup of the authentication key in case the Main Stream Key does not work.
