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

Restream Events enable you to set a thumbnail for the event and customize the title and description for your streams.

Tip: In order to get the most of this feature, we recommend upgrading to the Restream Standard plan. This would allow you to set your branding in the stream and use custom graphics in Restream studio!

Note: Currently, only Facebook and YouTube support scheduling of the events. Events are not created for other platforms.

Guide to setting up Restream Events:

  1. Open your Restream account and add all channels you would like to stream to. Please follow this detailed guide on adding the most common channels.

  2. Head over to the Restream dashboard and choose "Schedule Event."

  3. Choose the way you would like to stream: via Restream Studio or Encoder.
    Note: You will be able to switch between Studio and Encoder later.

    Tip: You can also schedule Schedule a pre-recorded stream with Restream event.


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

    • Title

    • Description

    • Date and time

    • Thumbnail (Upload a custom image to use it as a preview before you go live. Recommended size: 1280 x 720)

      Important Note: There will be no post (notification about the event) on Facebook if you schedule your event outside of the limit of 1 hour to 7 days before its starting time.

  5. Choose all the platforms you would like to stream to and press Create event.

  6. 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 press Done. You can access this link later as well.

    Your event is now created πŸŽ‰

Restream Events additional information

Tip: You can switch between Studio and Encoder streaming using the dropdown menu.

Important: We create a unique streaming key and Studio link for each of your Scheduled Events. This means that you would need to start streaming from Restream Studio using the link on the Restream Event page or a unique streaming key if you are going live from OBS.

If your event was interrupted (you lost internet connection, for example), you will have 2 minutes to reconnect. If you press the Finish button in Studio, it won’t allow you to come back to that Event, and it will be impossible to stream to that event again.

Get a sharable link to the Event

You can get the sharable link to the event for Facebook and YouTube.

  1. Clicking the channel icon at the created event.

  2. Press the View event button. You will be forwarded to the event URL. You can then copy it and share it with your followers.

Important Note: There will be no post (notification about the event) on Facebook if you schedule your event outside of the limit of 1 hour to 7 days before its starting time.
