Streaming to Any RTMP With Socialive

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 sessions (also called "persistent"). If you choose to save the RTMP settings, other producers will be able to stream to it in other sessions.

This article will go over the steps to:


To set up an RTMP connection, you need to:

  • Have the RTMP Server URL and Stream Key from the platform you want to stream to.
