  5. Go back to Teams and paste the RTMP details into the appropriate fields on the Custom Streaming sidebar.

  6. Click Start streaming and then Allow.

  7. Restream will automatically send your Teams meeting to your preferred channels.

Requirements

  1. If you’re having trouble starting your stream on the Teams app, please try using the browser version instead.

  2. You can only broadcast Teams meetings, not live events. For information on streaming to a live event, please refer to this guide instead.


Monitoring your stream

Once you've initiated your broadcast via Teams, visit your Encoder page on Restream. Here, you can oversee your stream's performance, manage the channels you're streaming to, and keep an eye on viewer counts.

💡 Pull your Teams feed in Studio to take advantage of powerful graphics.
