To live stream with Videolinq you need to (a) configure a video source (b) configure destinations and (c) Go Live. When you log to the Videolinq console, everything looks new. To help you get started quickly we prepared a short video tutorial. You can also follow the step-by-step guide below.
Create a live channel the first time!
Click on "New Source" to select a video source.
Give the source a name. Now select from 3 options:
RTMP encoder like OBS, vMix, Wirecast, or any other RTMP encoder.
A Webcam on your computer or mobile device.
An MP4 file or live RTMP/RTSP stream.
If you selected a "Webcam", first click on the green play icon to enable the source, then use the webcam widget settings to select your video and audio sources, and skip to Step 7.
If you selected an RTMP encoder, click on green play icon. This will open the Encoder tab. Copy the RTMP path and stream key. Here is an article explaining how to configure OBS. The same steps will apply with most 3rd party RTMP encoders.
If you selected a URL video source (an MP4 file or live RTMP/RTSP stream) do the following:
Place the MP4 on a media server that support RTMP.
Point to the RTSP or RTMP live stream.
After creating the URL video source enable the source by clicking on the green play icon.
This article explains in details how to create destinations. In short, you click on "New destination" and configure your destinations. Each destination requires a separate setup.
Last step is to click on "Go Live", and to enable destinations one-by-one or all at once.
To stop the live stream go in reverse order: stop the destinations, stop the channel (click on the red Stop icon), and stop the video source.
