  6. Click Add Channels.

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

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

  • Vimeo has the following recommended stream settings:

    • Video bitrate: 5,000 Kbps

    • Audio bitrate: 256 Kbps

    • Resolution: 1920x1080

    • FPS: 30

    • Keyframe interval: 2 seconds


What does "Use authentication" mean?

Some platforms require that you enter a username and password in order to connect, but this is not necessary for Vimeo 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?

This message may appear under some of your streaming destinations, like Vimeo, when you start a new stream or set up a Restream Event. It indicates a channel that does not support setting titles via Restream.

This is not an error—the titles will continue working normally for the rest of our supported platforms. For the channels that display this message, just make sure to update your stream's title on the end platform directly. In this case, the title that will be used is already set on Vimeo under the event you created.
