With Pairs for scheduled streams, you can add your channels to someone else's stream. The event will go live on all channels, making collaborative streaming easier than ever.


How to add your channels to a scheduled event

  1. Access the invite link provided by the host.

  2. If you don't have a Restream account, enter an email.

    If you already have an account, click Log In instead and enter your credentials.

  3. Click Add your channels.

  4. Add the channels that you would like to connect to the stream and toggle them on.

  5. Click Save.


Requirements

  • You can pair up to 3 channels for free (including paid ones, like Facebook pages or Custom RTMP channels).

  • You can only pair your channels before a scheduled event starts, not while it's live.

  • You have the option to pair and join the stream on-screen only if your host is streaming with Restream Studio.

  • If you are paired to a stream from an encoder or a pre-recorded video, you cannot join on-screen, but the stream will automatically go live on your paired channels.


FAQ

Why do I see a message to come back in a few days to join?

With scheduled streams, you can pair your channels up to 7 days in advance. If you access the invite link earlier than that, you will see a prompt to return to the event once it is 7 days away and then pair your channels.

Can I un-pair my channels if I change my mind?

Yes. Just access the invite link again, click on the channel icons and toggle off the ones you want to un-pair. Then, click Done.

Do I have to appear on the stream?

You do not need to be present when the event begins. You can simply pair your channels in advance and let the host run the show.

If you want to appear on the stream, you just need to access the invite link you received from the host and click Join Stream. You can find more instructions and tips about joining Studio as a guest here.

Note that you will only have this option if your host is streaming with Restream Studio. You cannot join streams from an encoder or a pre-recorded video on-screen.

Why does the event announcement only show up on some of my channels?

Currently, only Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn support creating event announcements in advance. Any other channels you pair will automatically start streaming when the event is live.
