Create a Livestream
Livepeer supports livestreaming using the RTMP protocol, which is supported by
most broadcast software/hardware as well as open source software for mobile
For this guide, we recommend OBS. Once you
have it downloaded and installed follow these steps to start livestreaming:
- Navigate to Settings -> Stream
- Enter the RTMP Server URL provided by your broadcaster node
- At the bottom of the window is a box called 'Sources'. Click on the + (or
right click inside the box) and pick the source you want. As a few examples,
select Game Capture if you're capturing a game, Window for non-game
applications, or Video Capture Device for a webcam or capture card.
- Double check that all your settings are how you want them in Settings ->
Output. Then, just hit Start Streaming.
