Publishing guide - RTMP/TCP
RTMP/TCP streaming enables live and on demand publishing of videos to a third party CDN/OVP over RTMP or TCP.
- An account with a 3rd party CDN/OVP that will accept live streaming ingestion over RTMP/TCP.
- RTMP/TCP credentials, provided by the CDN/OVP
- An RTMP/TCP enabled outbox in the Content Manager, provided by Bambuser
Click "Add outbox" in the upper right corner in the Content Manager. Type a name and click "Save".
Click on the cogwheel symbol next to the newly created outbox.
- Click the "Add RTMP output" or "Add TCP/UDP output" button
Insert your RTMP or TCP/UDP credentials provided by the receiving party. Username and password might not be necessary.
Click ”Save” and close the box
How it works
The outbox behaves like a looping playlist and will play videos in the order they appear in the list. To add a video to your playlist you press the arrow symbol underneath the preview player and select the outbox. You may set the order of the playlist by dragging and dropping the thumbnails. When happy with the order you start streaming by clicking the toggle button above the playlist. If you drop a video at the top of the list while streaming, any video currently playing will stop and the playlist will start from the top.
You can remove videos (live or archived) from a playlist by hovering with your mouse over the thumbnail and clicking the x-symbol.
