Live Video Encoder Formats

When configuring a live event, you’ll be prompted to choose your encoder format. The format is specific to your encoder so you’ll need to have an understanding of how your encoder is set up.

To learn which format you should select, see the details below. (You may also want to refer to your encoder’s documentation to find out which format is required.)

Multi-bitrate

Select this format if your encoder is able to stream in multiple stream qualities.

Single-bitrate

Select this format if your encoder can only stream in one stream quality.

Simplified RTMP

Select this format if your encoder doesn’t require the username and password. This format offers one stream quality only.
