If you are a customer on any of our Public plans (fully free video to viewers) you can stream your broadcast to any destination using the "Other RTMP" destination.

Step 1

Schedule a broadcast in the BoxCast Dashboard

Step 2

Go to Settings - Integrations

  • Click Add Integration

  • Click RTMP Integration

  • Name it something specific to the Destination (e.g. Facebook RTMP) so that you can identify the proper Destination when you are scheduling.

Step 3
Copy the Server URL and Stream Key from your destination into the Server URL and Stream Key field in the Integration window. See below Step 6 for examples of where to find your Server URL and Stream Key on some popular social sites.

Step 5

Schedule your Broadcast in the Dashboard and choose the created RTMP output from the Destinations menu.

Step 6

Note: You will need to go to that destination and schedule a broadcast with the proper information. With RTMP we cannot automatically schedule or start a stream on that third party service so that will have to be done within that service's platform.
