Restream Scheduler - is a special service fully integrated with Restream.io which allows you to upload and schedule pre-recorded videos to go live on one or multiple platforms at a specific date and time.

Tip: First of all, you need to be a registered Restream user and have your desired platforms setup (which you can change anytime) before the event start date.

Let's take a look and learn how to use Scheduler!

Visit https://scheduler.restream.io and click on "Login with Resteam"

Enter your email and password and Log In, you need to allow Scheduler to use your Restream account.

Choose a plan

You will be enrolled in the free plan by default, which allows you to have:

  • 1 "Event slot" - the number of events you can schedule
  • 2 "Video slots" - the number of videos you can upload
  • 30 minutes live event duration limit

You can upgrade to a plan which suits your needs. 

Upload your videos

Before you are able to start an event, you need a video. Visit the "Videos" tab and upload a video.

After the video is uploaded, it will take a little time to process and display data to make sure it's fit for live streaming. You can delete or add new videos according to the number of slots you have available depending on your subscription plan. 

How to schedule an event?!

Visit the "Schedule" tab. Here you can see your scheduled events, available event slots, and a history of your previous events. 

Click on Schedule event. Choose a video from the list, enter your title, and select a day and time. When you're finished, simply click on "Schedule".

Tip: You can set it it "Auto" in which case your stream will go live to your connected and enabled channels at Restream.io or "Manual" to be able to chose target platforms for each event.

Your event will appear on the list of upcoming the events and consume one slot. You can also remove (cancel) the event or edit its information and time to go live.

Important: You cannot schedule an event closer than 16 minutes to the time you want it to go live nor in between events without a sufficient time gap.

Restream Scheduler will do the job!

Restream Scheduler will pick up the server you are using currently at Restream.io, but you can change it in the "Settings". Remember that the server synchronizes only on your first login. 

All you need to do is relax, as your event will go live on the specific time and date automatically. 

Important: Do not forget to setup your channels and server on Restream for an event to go live to all of them, or just the ones you want to.

You can see the live event progress on the Events page when it is "live".

And also you can track your ongoing event health within the Restream Monitor.

As you can see, it has never been easier to create pre-recorded live events for multiple platforms at once. We hope you enjoy your new found capabilities with Restream and Scheduler
