Updated over a week ago

With Restream Events, you can schedule a live stream in advance and share the link with your audience!

How to use Restream Events

  1. Navigate to your Restream Dashboard and click on the Schedule Event button.

  2. Choose the way you want to stream: via Restream Studio, Encoder, or Video File. You can switch between Studio and Encoder later if you change your mind.

  3. Fill in the following details and then press "Next":

    • Stream Title,

    • Description of your stream,

    • Date and time you plan to go live,

    • Check the Create an event page on social platforms box if you want the event to create a notification in advance (currently, on LinkedIn, Facebook, and YouTube only),

    • Thumbnail option; you can upload a custom image to use as a preview before you go live. (Recommended size: 1280 x 720).

  4. Toggle on all the platforms you would like to stream to and click the Create Event button.

    Note: When you schedule an event on Facebook via Restream events, it will create a Facebook Online Event. Announcement posts will not be automatically posted to your personal Facebook profile's timeline. Instead, the new event will be created on the Facebook Events page.

  5. You will be offered to invite Guests to your stream and allow your guests to stream this event on their channels. Copy the link to share it with your guests and click "Done". You can access this link later as well.
