Stage TEN

Streaming to YouTube via RTMP

We make multistream and live video commerce easy. Set up your Scheduled Live Event in the YouTube Studio, then broadcast to it by RTMP from Stage TEN.

Using Stage TEN to send an RTMP stream to your YouTube Live Event will allow you to stream to a different YouTube channel than the one connected to your Stage TEN account. You can also start, stop, and restart your stream in Stage TEN, all while maintaining your live broadcast on YouTube. RTMP streaming available with a Professional or Enterprise plan.
