Live Stream (RTMP Out)

Modified on Fri, 24 Jun 2022 at 08:38 AM

You can stream your event sessions out to multiple destinations using the Live Stream option. Streams are configured session-wise therefore you must add a session before creating a live stream.


Note: Currently we only support manually configuring streaming using the Custom RTMP option.

To start a live stream

  1. Go to Live Stream from the left navigation and click Add Live Stream.

  2. On the session selection pop-up, the sessions are displayed day-wise. Select the checkboxes for the sessions you wish to stream and click Continue >.

  3. Enter the following details to configure your custom streaming service.

    1. Name: A unique name to identify your destination.

    2. Stream Key: One of the two important resources used to authorize live stream service to the desired destination. A stream key is usually a random alpha-numeric string.

    3. RTMP URL: A unique URL for RTMP-based streaming service. An RTMP URL has “rtmp” as the scheme. For example, rtmp://live-stream.com.

    4. Note: Currently, Zuddl does not support RTMPS (secure) protocol. So ensure that you locate and copy the right URL from your streaming application.Backup Stream Key (optional): This functions the same as Stream Key, this is the backup of the authentication key in case the Main Stream Key does not work.

    5. Hosting Website URL (optional): The URL of the streaming website.

  4. The newly added destination appears on the list and is selected by default. At this point, you can also add other destinations from the list for your live stream.
    Note: You cannot use the same destination to stream another session with an overlapping time.Click Next.

  5. On the Confirm live stream details screen, you can click on +Add more to include more destinations by following the above instructions.
