Live Video Supported Encoder Settings

Live Event streaming requires the use of an RTMP encoder. If your upload bandwidth and encoder allows, we recommend using three bitrate levels to enable adaptive bitrate switching.

The encoder settings below meet the minimum requirements for Live Event streaming on your platform. (To see the recommended encoder settings that will achieve the best performance based on your upload bandwidth, go to Live Event Recommended Encoder Settings.)
