FAQ

Can I update my stream title before I go live?

Yes. Your stream key is reusable, but you can update your stream's details before you go live to alternate based on your content. You need to follow the same steps outlined above on Mixcloud every time you want to update your title, description, or tags, but the key doesn't need to be updated on Restream.

Does Mixcloud work with Restream Chat?
