How do I stream on YouTube, Facebook or Twitch?

FAQ Studio Operators Streaming

 

First you have to define your streaming outputs.

When starting the Composer in the Startup Configuration window go to Device Mapper and click on Manage Devices at the bottom:

Among the Video Out device types select for e.g. YouTube:

click Add:

specify a name for your output, and provide your unique stream key of your channel:

for e.g. in the case of YouTube you can find the stream key on the Live Dasboard page. Click Reveal to copy it:

After clicking OK on both dialogs Composer will restart and you new streaming output will appear on the bottom of your output list. Select your streaming output as #2 and also tick Sync on it:

Then you can start Composer and load your virtual set.

But streaming won't start automatically. You can control it on your set's  CAMERAS control board, on the STREAMING panel:

You can simply switch streaming on and off by that button.

So yesterday I installed a 30 day trail version of the same software. Did not change any settings and it worked immediately.

So it must have someting to do with the "free" account version!

Dear Levison,

Streaming to RTMP based services is available across our whole lineup. You can stream any content you want using our community license. Upgrading to a paid version will just get rid of the watermark in the final output.

Hi

I now have a paid version DE, but the streaming button does not work.

Only when I was using the 30 day trial version it worked. I have changed nothing else. What can I do to get this working again?

I ahve also tried with an external incoder (teradek) with the same settings and that works fine. There must be a problem in the software somewhere. Any ideas???

Hi Levison,

Is it possible that you use this version on a different machine?
Please note that streaming only works when using an NVIDIA GPU.

Can you see any red colored error message in the Messages panel?

Hi,

I followed the steps as written. I'm running version 2021.1.0 the community license and opened a demo studio set. But I don't receive the live on my facebook. When I try the same stream link on OBS software it works without issues. My laptop has a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 card.

Any suggestions?

Hi all,

We apologize for that. Lately Facebook only accepts secured RTMP stream. We're working on to solve this, I'd like to ask for your patience.

Hi Steven,

The video is unavailable cause it is in private.

Make sure that you have your audio connected out:

Check if you have the same Rendering Frame Rate in Edit-> Preferences as your output:

And also make sure your network can handle the quality of your video stream. You could experiment with changing the quality of your Youtube channel:

Hope these general tips help.

Warmest regards,
