No matter if you're streaming to Restream from OBS, vMix, Zoom, or another encoder, Restream makes it easy to view all your chat messages in a unified place.


How to use Chat when streaming from an encoder

1. Restream Dashboard

Once you go live from your streaming software, you can view all your chat messages collectively on your Restream dashboard, as well as reply to messages from supported platforms.

2. Chat App

Our downloadable desktop app provides a convenient solution for managing your chat without the need to open any browser windows.

3. OBS Dock

When streaming to Restream from OBS, you can access the chat directly through a built-in dock. Simply log into Restream on OBS using the Connect Account option, and the chat dock will automatically appear.

If you're connected via stream key instead, you can manually add the dock by going to Docks > Custom Browser Docks > and adding this URL: https://chat.restream.io/
