Now that you’re up and running, you can explore some of the other great tools Restream provides to help you maximize the impact of your stream.
Schedule and record
With Restream Events, you can schedule streams and let your audience know about upcoming events. It makes creating a consistent schedule and promoting your stream a breeze. You can even schedule a recorded video to stream at a specific date and time.
Speaking of recordings, did you know you can use Restream to record video (without broadcasting it)? It’s for rehearsals or for creating a video to stream later.
Tip: If you’re a podcaster, check this out! Restream can also create split-track audio recordings that you can repurpose for podcast content.
Chat with your audience
Interacting with your viewers is one of the best ways to keep them engaged with your stream but hopping from platform to platform and trying to keep up with comments and chats is just too chaotic. Restream Chat aggregates messages from all your platforms on one screen and lets you reply to them easily. You can even cross-post messages, so audiences on different platforms can interact with each other.
Track your metrics
Want to know how your stream performed? Curious about your audience size and their engagement levels? Restream Analytics gathers information from all your platforms and puts it in one place for easy analysis.
Stream with your team
Interested in setting up your team and colleagues with Restream? Restream Teams allow you to assign co-producer and co-hosting roles. This makes it easy to co-create with your production team!
Expand your reach to guest channels
Ever had a guest join you on a stream? What if you could maximize your views by streaming the same content to that person's channels as well? With Restream Pairs you can invite anyone to add their channels to your stream, allowing you to live stream to both your and their channels, amplifying your views!
To further facilitate your streaming experience, we have even more awesome features!
