Instagram does not currently support live streaming outside its own mobile application. Once Instagram offers official live video support, it will be added as a distribution option within Socialive.

However you can stream to Instagram Live through a third-party application like Yellowduck.tv

NOTE: Yellow Duck is not affiliated with, authorized, or endorsed by Instagram or Socialive, so please use at your own risk.

Step 1: Start the Yellow Duck application

Step 2: Log in to your Instagram account

Step 3: Copy and Paste the RTMP URL and Stream Key

Important: Keep in mind that you need to use it and start the stream fast, as your key is valid only for a few minutes.

Step 5: Start your broadcast

Start the stream and it will be delivered to your Instagram.

Important: Keep in mind that you need to start the stream quickly, as your key is valid only for a few minutes.

Tip: When you broadcast in landscape, it will be centered cropped for full portrait (9:16).
