Create a new Endpoint

To prepare to stream to a new Endpoint in Shoflo Studio, you'll need to start by creating a new RTMP endpoint. As a Director, this can be done by selecting the Endpoints tab on the right side of the Director View, then selecting the "Add new" button.

Configuring an Endpoint

Once you've started the process of creating a new Endpoint you can give your endpoint a name, then, you'll need to find the correct Stream URL and Stream Key for the endpoint where you want your stream to go. The process for finding this information will differ depending on your endpoint.

Advanced Settings

Once you have the Stream Key and Stream URL, clicking "Advanced Settings" will allow you to fully customize your RTMP output by setting the resolution, bitrate, audio delay, and several other options.

Once you are satisfied with all of the Endpoint settings, click the blue "Create" button to add the Endpoint configuration to your list of Endpoints in the Director View.

Start Streaming

When you are ready to start streaming, you can click the start button next to your endpoint. Once it's time to end the stream, you can do so by clicking "Stop" .

Studio allows you to add more than one endpoint and you can stream to multiple endpoints simultaneously.

Streaming to multiple endpoints

Shoflo Studio allows you to stream to multiple endpoints simultaneously. You can create additional endpoints using the previous steps in this article. Once you've done that, you can start streaming to as many as 10 endpoints simultaneously.

This feature can be helpful even if you are only streaming to one endpoint because some endpoints support having a backup stream.
