How it works

If you want to livestream to your Event App using a streaming platform not officially supported by Webex Events, use multiple different platforms for a single stream, stream from an eCDN, or stream meeting software directly to your Event App, then RTMP is for you!  

How to set it up:

1. Activate RTMP and copy the Stream Key and RTMP URL 

2. Enter the RTMP URL and Stream Key into the broadcast software 

Once the URLs and keys are in place, you’re ready to go! Within a few seconds of your stream starting, it will appear to your attendees inside your Webex Events event.
