XSplit is paid live streaming software (not available for Mac). It's just one of the tools you might use if you want to create a Live Event in Uscreen.

Make sure you've got a Mic and Webcam set up to start live streaming.

Navigate to Content, then go to Live Events to first create a live event.

If you haven't created a live event before, make sure to check our help article for detailed instructions.

On the Stream tab, you're going to see a Stream URL and a Stream Key. These are needed so XSplit can link with Uscreen. You will need to copy both the URL and the key to start streaming.

Since stream keys can be reused, you will have to wait at least 5 minutes from event to event to reuse the same key. If you are creating a completely new live event, then you won't need to worry about that.

In XSplit, navigate to Broadcast select Setup a New Input, then click on Custom RTMP. Name it as Uscreen or whatever you prefer and for the RTMP URL paste in your Stream URL. For the Stream Name paste in your Stream Key.


On Broadcast, click the Custom RTMP that you just set up to start streaming.


Uscreen should be receiving your stream from XSplit, but before you go live, make sure you give your Live Event a test. Go to Content and click Live Events. Select the Live Event you want to stream and click Edit. Then under the Stream tab, click on Test Player. If you see your video/content from XSplit, 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!
