HOW TO STREAM WITH WIRECAST

  1. Login to your account
  2. Create a new live stream player or select an existing ones.
  3. Go to 🎥 Live Studio
  4. Choose RTMP Encoder as your Source.
  5. Install Wirecast on your computer. 
  6. Open Wirecast and select Output, then Output Settings.
  7. In the Output Settings, select RTMP Server to set up your RTMP details.
  8. Give your RTMP Server settings a name. We recommend naming it the same as your stream quality, such as Stream 1080p.
  9. Now select the Encoding Drop Down List to choose your desired transmission quality such as H.264 1080p.
  10. We now need to enter the Address by copying the RTMP URL from 🎥 Live Studio and pasting it into the Wirecast Address box.
  11. With the RTMP Address entered, we'll need to copy the RTMP Key from 🎥 Live Studio and paste it into the Wirecast Stream box.
  12. You have now created a single primary stream, but don't stop there. 
  13. For best viewing experience, we recommend you set up multi-bit-rate adaptive streaming. 

Set Up A Multi-Bitrate Adaptive Streaming With Wirecast ( Recommended )

To configure adaptive live streaming, you need to send a total of three separate streams, each with different resolution and bitrate. 

You've already created the primary one.  Now you need to repeat the above steps and add stream 2 and stream 3.

IMPORTANT! Use the same RTMP URL and RTMP Key BUT add number "2" and number "3" at the end of the RTMP key. ( see below )

EXAMPLE:

Stream 1 ( Recommendation: 1080p with 4-6 mbit/s )

Encoding = H.264 1080p
RTMP URL = rtmp://livecast.webvideocore.net/live
RTMP Key = xxxxxxxxxxxx

Stream 2 ( Recommendation: 720p with 2 mbit/s )

Encoding = H.264 720p
RTMP URL = rtmp://livecast.webvideocore.net/live
RTMP Key = xxxxxxxxxxxx2

Stream 3 ( Recommendation: 360p with 0.6 mbit/s )

Encoding = H.264 360p
RTMP URL = rtmp://livecast.webvideocore.net/live
RTMP Key = xxxxxxxxxxxx3
  1. Click on the OK button to save your Stream Server Settings
  2. Select which source you would like to stream from Wirecast such as a camera or some local videos 
  3. Click the right arrow button to activate the currently selected source.
  4. Start sending the signal from Wirecast by clicking the Stream Button and check that it's being received in the 🎥 Live Studio
  5. It takes 40 seconds before the multi-bitrate streams are shown in the player.
