Requirements

  • Updating stream details before going live is helpful for instant streams. For scheduled streams with Restream Events, these steps are not necessary.

  • You can update all your channels at once or each channel individually.

  • Some channels do not support setting up titles from Restream. In that case, a message that says "Set your title directly on the streaming platform" will appear.


FAQ

What does "Set your title directly on the streaming platform" mean?

This message may appear under some of your streaming destinations when you start a new stream or set up a Restream Event. It indicates a channel that does not support setting titles via Restream.

This is not an error—the titles will continue working normally for the rest of our supported platforms. For the channels that display this message, just make sure to update your stream's title on the end platform directly.

The game I'm streaming doesn't show up in the menu.

If a game doesn't show up under the dropdown when updating all channels at once, please let our Support team know and we'll do our best to add it to the next iteration.

In the meantime, you can update each channel individually to see a list of games specific to that platform and a wider range of options. You can also update your game on the end platform directly.

Can I update my title while I'm live?

We recommend updating your stream's title before going live. Once you are live, you will still be able to edit your details on Restream, but some platforms may not reflect the changes. This will depend on your connected channels and what they support.

What's the difference between an instant and a scheduled stream?

Instant streams are lives you start on the spot, while scheduled streams are tied to Restream Events that are created in advance. You can learn more about scheduled and unscheduled streams here.
