Choosing a subscription plan
Important: At least a Professional plan is required to use Scheduler!
Subscription would depend on the type of platforms you would like to stream to and the length and size of your pre-recorded video.
Adding streaming channels
Now that you’ve purchased a subscription plan, you can add channels to your Restream account.
Tip: If you need to stream to a site/platform that you don't see listed in our channels section, you may need to use Custom RTMP to stream to it. Learn more about Custom RTMP here.
Preparing your video for streaming
In order to provide your viewers with the smoothest experience, you may want to consider using HandBrake, a free cross-platform tool that optimizes videos specifically for streaming purposes. This tool compresses your video without demolishing the quality in order to ensure smooth streams without any interruptions. Visit our guide to learn more about HandBrake.

Uploading a Video
Both video uploads and recordings are stored in Video Storage (Cloud button on the left side menu in Restream).
Scheduling an event
You can schedule a pre-recorded stream in the Restream Events section.
Note: You can get the sharable link to the event for Facebook, YouTube, by clicking their icon at the created event.
Testing your stream
Finally, don’t forget to test your stream to make sure everything works just as planned. The most common way of testing your stream is to set the stream in private mode. You can do it in the settings of the end platforms you stream to.
