  • 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

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?

Manually connected channels, like Vimeo, do not support setting titles via Restream. You can update your stream's title Vimeo directly.
