How live stream works

You can broadcast live via any RTMP hardware or software encoder such as OBS, Wirecast or vMix.

Embed the live stream directly on a website or send the live feed to one or multiple Viloud channels. The channel automatically will switch to a live state and once the live ends the channel will switch to its normal state.

All live broadcasts will be recorded so you can easily use it like on demand content in your channels later. So that live minutes streamed will be counted like minutes hosted.

This feature is available from the Business plan.
