To create an Eventive livestream, start with a livestream encoder source that is able to stream to an RTMP (Real Time Messaging Protocol) link provided by Eventive.

Compatible sources include:

  • Zoom (Zoom Pro account level or above)

  • Google Hangouts

  • Skype

  • OBS (Open Broadcaster Studio)

  • Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder 3.2

  • Elemental Live (version 2.14.15 and higher)

  • Haivision KB

  • Haivision Makito X HEVC

  • Switcher Studio (iOS)

  • Telestream Wirecast (version 13.0.2 or higher due to the TLS 1.2 requirement)

  • Telestream Wirecast S (only RTMP is supported)

  • Teradek Slice 756

  • VMIX

  • xStream

  • GoPro Hero 7 and Hero 8

And more! If it can accept an RTMP or RTMPS endpoint, it works with Eventive.

Next: Create your livestream event

The process for creating a livestream event is always the same, regardless of the content source!

Create a new virtual screening, and under screening type, select either "Livestream" for a standalone livestream screening, or "VOD + Live" to create a screening that consists of both video content and a livestream.

Follow the directions in this help article to set up your livestream event, decide which of the 3 livestream modes you'll use, then read our thorough how to livestream guide.
