If the video you want to stream is already in Google Drive or Dropbox you can easily upload it straight to Restream Scheduler! Of course, you will need to have a video uploaded to Google Drive or Dropbox already to follow the below steps. Also, ensure that the video file is in accordance with the plan and platform limitations. You can learn how to optimize a video here: 

To start, go to your Content Dashboard from your Restream Scheduler account and click the down arrow next to "Upload" and click "Dropbox, Google Drive Import." 

Upload video to Restream Scheduler

You will now need to get a public shareable link for the video so that the Restream Scheduler can download the file. 

Google Drive

Right-click the file in the list and click "Get Shareable Link."

Wait a few seconds for the link to be generated and then copy (Control/Command+V) the provided URL. 

Copy sharing link


Click "Share" for the file you want to upload.

Click "Create Link" from the bottom left

Then click "Copy Link."

Back on Restream Scheduler, paste the URL you copied from either Dropbox or Google Drive into the text box. Wait a few seconds for our system to check the link, then click Upload.
