Crowdcast RTMP Studio enables you to use professional live streaming software with Crowdcast. In this article we will show you how to connect Wirecast 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 Wirecast 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 Wirecast, go to "Output > Output Settings" to add a RTMP Server destination.
3. Copy & paste the Server URL and Stream Key.
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.
4. When you're ready to go live, go to "Output > Start/Stop Broadcasting > Start RTMP Server".
🚀 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.
