Video - Source

Create video source from RTMP encoder, a webcam, or file.

Updated over a week ago

Only one video source can be used to live stream from a channel, but you create multiple video sources and assigned them to different channels. A video source can be one of the following:

  • Hardware or software encoder with RTMP output.

  • A Webcam on a computer or mobile device.

  • A live stream accessible via the RTMP/RTSP protocols.

  • A MP4 file uploaded and stored by Videolinq. We accept a single file, or files listed on a playlist.

IMPORTANT: Closed captioning is only supported at the moment on these source formats -

  • RTMP live video. Add real time closed captioning in the video or from outside the video.

  • A live stream with closed captioning embed as CEA-608.

  • An uploaded MP4 file and a matching same-name closed captioning file as a VTT format.
