🎥 Steps to go live

4. When you're ready to go live simply click on Go Live within Ecamm Live.

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 1080p at 2000 - 3000 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 are 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 within a couple of minutes.

Important Notes

  • With RTMP Studio, there is a video delay of 20 - 40 seconds similar to Facebook live and Youtube live.

  • Your video will stream and record in HD to all devices.

  • For more details on recommended encoding software settings, check out our support doc covering RTMP Studio.
