With Socialive, you can stream to any platform that supports Real-time Messaging Protocol (RTMP). When you set up an RTMP stream, you can choose to store it for one-time use or save it to your account to use in future broadcasts (also called "persistent"). If you choose to save the RTMP settings, other producers will be able to stream to it in other broadcasts.
