Live Stream from Your Desktop Using an Encoder
You can go live directly from your desktop using an encoder.
An encoder is a special software that allows you to stream from your desktop computer.
NOTE: The encoder you use must allow you to enter a custom RTMP (Real-Time Messaging Protocol)
Here are some encoders that support RTMP. Click the images below to learn more.
Switcher Studio lets you capture video from multiple camera angles — and edit it in real time — helping you connect with your community in the most engaging way yet. Stream it live or record it for later.
Stream to multiple platforms simultaneously! StreamYard works with Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, Periscope, Twitch, and custom RTMP outputs.
Setting Up Your Live Stream
There are two ways to Live Stream to your website. You can Go Live Immediately or you can schedule a Live Stream.
HD Streaming Tips
Make sure you have a solid internet connection
You’ll want an upload speed of at least 4 Mbps. Make sure you’re looking at upload speed, not download.
We strongly recommend plugging in directly to your router. Wifi isn’t very stable and can cause issues even when your internet is fast.
Encourage your guests to use a computer if possible (instead of mobile), and plug in to their router.
