4. Points to keep in mind :

  • Stream resolution for any session stream into the encoder or platform is 720p.

  • Once streaming has begun, it has nothing to do with host/co-host bandwidth, as the host/co-host only triggered the start session, which starts the streaming as well.

  • You cannot stream two parallel sessions in the case of custom RTMP.

  • There would be a latency of about ~15-20 seconds between the sent and received streams.

  • Recommended not to take any break for a session that is being streamed, as it will freeze at the last frame of the session.

  • If the session got ended by the event host, the live stream would stop immediately.

  • It is advisable not to 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.
