Ways to Go Live on X (Twitter) with Socialive

X offers easy-to-use tools for you to share your stories as they unfold with live video. X live video toolkit includes the Media Studio Producer, a flexible API for professional broadcasts, and a one-touch broadcasting option from X apps. 

You must have a verified X Premium or Premium+ subscription to go live on X to utilize Media Studio and stream to X via RTMP (as opposed to via the API). 

Differences Between Going Live via the API or RTMP

There are a couple of differences between these two methods.

X Live API

  • With the X live API, you can simply connect your X account to Socialive and stream directly to it. 
  • You can only enter a broadcast title, which will be the tweet that gets posted onto your account along with your live broadcast feed when you go live. This broadcast title field has a 140 character limit.
  • You can connect and go live into any X account.

Follow the instructions in the article to Streaming to X (Twitter) with Socialive.

X Media Studio Producer

  • With Media Studio Producer, you can create a professionally-produced livestream with flexible settings. It allows you to:
    • Plan and promote livestreams in advance with scheduling
    • Create a recurring livestream either daily or weekly
    • Create public and private livestream / broadcast
    • Apply geo-restrictions to your content
  • You need to be invited to access Media Studio. Contact Twitter about getting access to Media Studio.

If you already have been invited to Media Studio, follow the instructions in the article to stream to Twitter via RTMP.
