  • Only public video links can be imported.

  • Your imported video's maximum size and duration depend on your Restream plan.

  • Required video formats: MP4, MOV, M4V or MKV.

  • If your original file is in an unsupported format, you can use our free conversion tool to turn it into MP4.


Why isn't Restream recognizing my Drive link?

Make sure your video is set to public or "Anyone with the link". If your video is set as restricted or private to a specific group on Drive, Restream won't be able to detect and import it.
