Disclaimer: TikTok currently provides limited users with access to their live-streaming feature for 3rd party software like Restream. Even if you have access to regular streaming on their mobile app, you might not have access to your account's RTMP details in order to stream via another service.

Access to this setup is entirely controlled by TikTok and is outside of Restream's control. If you meet their basic streaming requirements but lack access to the RTMP streaming ability, we encourage you to reach out to TikTok directly.

⚙️ Requirements

  • Streaming on TikTok is available for all Restream plans, including free.

  • Verify you are allowed to go live. You must be at least 16 years old and have at least 1,000 followers on TikTok.

    • Important: Even if you meet these requirements and are able to go live on TikTok directly, access to their RTMP streaming feature is not guaranteed.

  • If you want to go live on TikTok, you must follow TikTok’s rules. Read TikTok’s community guidelines before you start streaming on the platform.

  • Recommended video resolution: 720x1280.

  • Recommended video bitrate: 1800 Kbps.
