Restream is an online service that allows you to stream to multiple services at once. It has a few great features like the ability to invite a guest to stream with you remotely(like Zoom). You can also upload videos in advance to stream at a specified time, that way if you want to premiere a video you don't need to rely on your computer to stream on the fly. Everything is processed by Restream and sent to us.

Make sure you've got a Mic and Webcam setup to live stream with.

Navigate to Content > Live Events to first create a live event.

If you haven't created a live event before make sure to check out our help article on that.

On the Stream tab you're going to see a Stream URL and a Stream Key. Both are needed for Restream to link with Uscreen.

Unlike a few other streaming services, your stream key is going to be unique to each live event.

In Restream, click Add Channel and select Custom RTMP. Paste in the RTMP URL and the Stream Key.

You should be streaming right away as long as your custom RTMP is toggled on.

Now Uscreen should be receiving your stream from Restream but before you go live make sure you give your Live Event a test.

Again, under the Stream tab, click on Test Player. If you see video/content from Restream you are ready to go live.

Just note, that you sometimes have to wait a good 30 seconds to see your content.

If ready, click Go Live and your live event has begun!
