Crowdcast RTMP Studio enables you to use professional live streaming software with Crowdcast. This works by sending video to Crowdcast via a standard method known as RTMP (Real-Time Messaging Protocol). Therefore if your software or hardware can send a RTMP output, then you can connect it to a Crowdcast event.

With RTMP Studio there is a video delay of 20-40 seconds similar to Facebook live and Youtube live and the video streams and records in HD to all devices.

We've created extra documentation for some popular software below. If you're using one of the tools below click on it to get specific instructions.

By default RTMP Studio will deliver the video quality at the quality received from your encoder app or gear. We recommend streaming your video at 720p at 2500-4000 kbps for the best experience. If you want to stream at 1080p we recommend checking the 'transcode stream' box in Crowdcast (available on the Business plan) to reduce buffering for attendees with slower connections.
