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.

🚀  That's it! You're now live and broadcasting to your crowdcast.

While live, all the powers of Ecamm live is available to you including bringing in callers from Skype or Facetime, 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 "Finish" in Ecamm Live. We'll start processing the recording and make it available in a couple of minutes.
