Many Restream users struggle with connecting multiple Periscope accounts for multistreaming. For most of them, only the last connected channel works properly, while all previously added channels do not. This happens because of how Periscope API tokens work - when a user logs out of their Periscope account, the connection gets dismissed, and Restream can't stream to such a channel anymore. The solution for this issue is to use an incognito mode of modern browsers to log in to each account you need to stream to. Every channel of Periscope has to be connected in a separate incognito session without log out.

How to connect:

1. On Windows press  Win+Shift+N, on Mac press ⌘ + Shift + N. This will open an incognito window for most browsers.

Google Chrome incognito mode

2. In this window log in to Restream and to the Periscope account you want to connect to Restream.
