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.

4. When you're ready to go live, go to "Output > Start/Stop Broadcasting > Start RTMP Server".

While live, all the powers of Wirecast 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 Wirecast.
