How to Live Stream with RTMP(s) on YoloBox/YoloBox Pro?

YoloBox/YoloBox Pro has a direct integration with several platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Twitch, that makes it easy to stream by simply selecting the destination on YoloBox/YoloBox Pro. However, users can stream to many different platforms without a direct integration by using Custom RTMP.  Most simulcasting providers also rely on Custom RTMP.

RTMP, which stands for Real Time Messaging Protocol, is supported by most streaming providers. “Custom RTMP ” simply means you’ll create a unique streaming channel in YoloBox/YoloBox Pro based on parameters provided by your streaming platforms. 

To use Custom RTMP with YoloBox/YoloBox Pro, you’ll need two RTMP values from the platform(s) you want to stream to: 

  1. A Server/Stream URL
  2. A Stream Key/ID

Once you have these two values, you’ll enter them into the link page that YoloLiv sends, then set up a Custom RTMP channel to stream to the platforms you want. 

How do you know that your destinations support Custom RTMP(S)?

Find the Go live part in the Dashboard of your platforms, and there will be in a part showing the Streaming setting. Once you’ve confirmed the platform supports RTMP, then read on.
