Switcher Studio has a direct integration with several platforms like Facebook and YouTube that make it easy to stream by simply selecting the destination within the Switcher app. However, you can also livestream on many different platforms with the use of Custom RTMP. Custom RTMP is a feature that allows you to connect your streaming channel in Switcher Studio with specific parameters provided by the streaming platform of choice.
To use Custom RTMP with Switcher Studio, you will need two RTMP values from the platform you want to stream to:
Stream Key / Stream ID
Once you have these two parameters, you set up a Custom RTMP channel within Switcher to stream to the platform.
Setting up Custom RTMP with Switcher Studio
Custom RTMP can be configured directly in the Switcher Studio App or by using the Switcher Studio online Dashboard. The benefit to setting up RTMP in the Switcher Studio Dashboard is that you can use any internet-connected device, including computers, making it easier to copy and paste RTMP parameters into the Dashboard.
