RTMP Inputs

The Live Encoder supports both RTMP and RTMPS protocols.

πŸ“˜

We offer support for Main and Backup RTMP/RTMPS inputs to each Live Encoder as standard.

In this guide we'll explain how to configure inputs using both the API and UI.

It's important to note that Inputs can be configured in two different modes of operation.

  1. IP Based RTMP ingest
  2. Static RTMP/RTMPS ingest

The main differentiator between these two modes is based on the user requirements to set the application and stream key. A table illustrating these differences is shown below.
