Upload a local video file from your device's storage and play it on your stream.

How to use local video

  1. Go to Restream Studio and click on the Add source icon.

  2. Select Local video.

  3. Choose the video you want from your device's files and click Open.

  4. The video will appear as an additional feed on the left-hand side preview area of your Studio. Toggle on the video to make it play.


  • This is a free feature available with any Restream plan.

  • You can play one video at a time.

  • Please make sure your browser and connection can actually support the file. If the file is too large for your browser to process, check out our Video Storage Integration to ensure superior quality with server-side reliability.


Do I have any video controls?

Yes, you can:

  • Pause/play the video.

  • Maximize the video to take up the full screen of your stream and hide any other participants/content.

  • Loop the video to continue to play from the top after it is over.

  • Adjust its volume according to your preference.

  • Toggle it off to hide from the stream.

  • Remove it from your Studio entirely.

💡 Enhance your stream with graphics like overlays, backgrounds, and more.
