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 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.
