Set up Live Stream

Modified on Tue, 08 Nov 2022 at 09:09 AM

Using the Live Stream option, you can stream your event sessions out to multiple destinations such as YouTube, Facebook, or LinkedIn. Streams are configured session-wise therefore you must add a session before creating a live stream.

Note: Currently we only support manually configuring streaming using the Custom RTMP option.

To start a live stream:

  1. Go to Live Stream from the left navigation and click +Add live stream.image.png

  2. On the session selection screen, the sessions are displayed date-wise. On the navigation scroll bar, select the date for the session you want to stream. The sessions scheduled for the selected date along with the stage name appear on the right as checkboxes.

  3. Select the checkboxes for the sessions you wish to stream.

    1. Select the stage to stream all the sessions on the particular stage.

  7. Enter the following details to configure your custom streaming service.

    1. Name: A unique name to identify your destination.

    2. Stream Key: One of the two important resources used to authorize live stream service to the desired destination. A stream key is usually a random alpha-numeric string.

    3. RTMP URL: A unique URL for RTMP-based streaming service. An RTMP URL has “rtmp” as the scheme. For example, rtmp://

    4. Note: Currently, Zuddl does not support RTMPS (secure) protocol. So ensure that you locate and copy the right URL from your streaming application.Backup Stream Key (optional): This functions the same as Stream Key, this is the backup of the authentication key in case the Main Stream Key does not work.

    5. Hosting Website URL (optional): The URL of the streaming website.

  8. The newly added destination appears on the list and is selected by default. At this point, you can also add other destinations from the list for your live stream.

    Note: You cannot use the same destination to stream another session with an overlapping time.After you’ve added all the destinations, click Update session. This saves all the changes made

  9. Click Publish stream.

This configures your destination for live streaming your session and your stream name appears on the list of added streams.
