If consecutive four hour streams won't work for you, our Enterprise plans may be the best fit for your needs! Enterprise is a fully customizable plan that works exactly for your needs! To learn more about our Enterprise plans, please contact our support team!
What timezone are streams scheduled in?
When scheduling a new event with the Restream Scheduler, it will use the timezone set on your device. The timezone it is scheduled in will be shown while setting up the event.
I'm getting "invalid video" error after uploading
This can happen if your video has orientation settings not matching with actual video dimensions, or if some of the video metadata is damaged. This can happen if a video was recorded on a phone or if real-time encoder which was compressing the video was overloaded.
A fix for it is converting your video with Handbrake setting desired orientation and parameters.
