Publishing to social media

Flussonic Media Server allows you to publish any stream to an external server using RTMP.

Social media use RTMP to organize live broadcasts, which means that you can use Flussonic Media Server to send your streams to social media (it can be several at once).

Scenarios for use:

  • Receiving video from a mobile reporter and sending directly to several social media.
  • Broadcast video from CCTV cameras.
  • Broadcast their own programs in social media. Including on schedule.

Warning

Stream keys can expire. Check the terms of the service before publishing the stream.
