Restream enables live streaming to 30+ different platforms. We have no limitation on bitrate, resolution, viewer count, or duration. Our paid plans include the following features (features vary per package):
- Real-time Channel Management
- Custom RTMP
- Branding Removal
- Channel Analytics
- RTMP Pull
- Fail Safe Stream Backup
- Premium Support
What do these features mean?
This is how many custom channels you can add to your Restream account. A custom channel can be any destination that accept RTMP - Wowza, or Akamai are some exampels. You must already have a RTMP URL and Stream Key (a username and password is possible) from the destination.
Note: This feature does not include a embed URL for a website, you must already have a RTMP player on your site if you wish to stream to your website.
The Personal (Free) Restream account only allows for one instance of each supported service. If, for example, you wanted to connect two YouTube accounts (One personal, one business) you would need a Doubling channel. Doubling allows you to stream to a supported service more than once.
Note: This feature does not work on custom or custom RTMP destinations. If you need additional custom destinations, you need to upgrade to a plan with more Custom RTMP channels.
Real-time Channel Management
This feature allows you to edit, remove or add channels to your Restream Dashboard while you are live. As soon as the channel is added, we will start sending data! On the Personal (Free) Restream account, you can add channels while live, however they will not go live until you restart the stream from your software.
Restream does not put any watermarks or other visual branding on your stream. Our branding consists of a link to Restream in description/about section of free destinations. This feature allows you to remove the link from those sections.
Ever wanted to track when your most active time was, or even your most used emoji? Our channel analytics tracks many aspects of your connected channels so that you know where and when your reach is strongest.
A RTMP Pull link is a URL that can be inserted into a streaming software, and the stream will be pulled from Restream.
Fail Safe Stream Backup
If you have a really important stream that can take even a second of downtime, we recommend our Business plan as it includes Fail Safe backups. We would take two streams from you (preferably from two different networks) and if one were to go down, we would immediately switch to the other stream.
Note: This feature is not recommended for 24/7/365 streams due to technical limitations. We do not recommend this feature for streams lasting longer than 120 hours at a single time.
Although the Personal account does still get 24/7 support, our paid plans include an even more premium support. With this feature our support team can help guide you through setting up a streaming software, or recommend applications for your use case!
