Connect to any platform with an RTMP URL and stream key, even if it's not on our list of supported channels.

How to add a Custom RTMP Channel

  1. From your home screen, click the Destinations button.

  2. Click Add Channels.

  3. At the bottom, select Custom RTMP.

  4. Fill in the RTMP URL and stream key as provided by the platform you are connecting to, then click Add Channel.

  5. Your channel is set up - you just need to choose how you'll go live.


  • You need a paid Restream plan to stream on Custom RTMP channels.

  • API-dependent features like Restream Chat and Analytics will not work for Custom RTMP channels.


What does "Use authentication" mean?

Some platforms require that you enter a username and password in order to connect, but normally this is not necessary and can be skipped upon setup.

Can I use RTMPS instead of RTMP?

Yes, the steps are the same. You would simply input your RTMPS URL instead of an RTMP URL.

What does "Set your title directly on the streaming platform" mean?

Custom channels do not support setting titles via Restream, as they are connected manually. You can update your stream's title on the end platform directly.
