First step is to request an “RTMP solution for Livestream” feature.
Once you have this feature enabled, you will receive an “RTMP server” URL and a “Stream Key” that looks something like this:
RTMP server: rtmp://encoder.ottfeed.com/live?e=TUaQUg0V0pXMUVTRko1Z….
Stream Key: 52424bb2312
In addition, a Livestream entry with a sample metadata will be create under your OTTfeed account, you can find it by searching livestream on the OTTfeed homepage (make sure you have “Live” selected in the Type dropdown).
Click on the Livestream and update your metadata (title, description, thumbnail etc.).
Don’t forget to add your Livestream to one of your categories and publish the feed.
Wait for your livestream to appear on your Roku Channel, if you are using Roku Direct Publisher this will take up to 24 hours for the new content feed to be ingested by the Roku server, but if you are leasing our custom Roku channel the content update is instant.
Now you are ready to livestream to your Roku channel by using OBS Studio one of the most popular applications for live streamline.
Here is how to configure your OBS to work with our RTMP server:
1 Open your OBS application, click on “Settings”.
