The majority of encoders today can transmit RTMP, and most media servers can receive it. Even big social media players like FacebookYouTubeTwitch, and Periscope accept it. With Airmeet’s live streaming functionality, you can stream your Airmeet event to your respective encoder or platforms which accepts RTMP input. 


Prerequisites:-

  1. Airmeet Community & Event 

  2. RTMP input capability for 3rd party broadcaster/platform.

Step 1: Select the Airmeet event where you want to stream your sessions.


Step 2: Click on “Live Stream” on the left side of the event dashboard page and click on “Add stream destination”.

Points to keep in mind :

  • Stream resolution for any session stream into encoder/platform is 720p.
  • Once streaming has begun it has nothing to do with host/co-host bandwidth as host/co-host only triggered start session which starts the streaming as well.
  • You can't stream two parallel sessions in the case of custom RTMP.
  • There would be a latency of about ~15-20 seconds between the stream being sent and the stream being received.
  • Recommended not take any break for a session which is getting streamed as it will freeze at the last frame of the session.
  • if the session got ended by the event host, the live stream will stop immediately.
  • It is advisable to not use any copyrighted content while streaming as it may lead to blocking your live streaming by the respective platform which is out of Airmeet control.
