Crowdcast RTMP Studio enables you to use professional live streaming software with Crowdcast. In this article we will show you how to connect OBS to a Crowdcast event.
To see a full list of all the software and apps you can connect to your live event click here.
First open up OBS and set up your camera and scenes. Next follow the steps below to go live.
🎥 Steps to go live
1. Start the studio engine.
2. In OBS, go to "Settings > Stream > Stream Type: Custom Streaming Server".
3. Copy & paste the Server URL and Stream key.
4. When you're ready to go live simply click on "Start Streaming".
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 to reduce buffering for attendees with slower connections.
🚀 That's it! You're now live and broadcasting to your crowdcast.
While live, all the powers of OBS is available to you including sharing recorded videos, lower thirds, intro/outro videos, screen-sharing and more.
When you're ready to end the broadcast click on the "End Broadcast" button in Crowdcast and then "Stop Streaming" in OBS.
