Multi-Use RTMP Destinations allow you to save RTMP Server URLs and RTMP stream keys so that they can be used at any point. This works with any unchanging stream key from your destination. There are often described as "static," "consistent," or "persistent" stream keys depending on your target destination.
How to Find RTMP URL & Stream Key
This will depend on what service you are using but here are examples of a few popular services:
The Stream Key and URL are in different locations on Twitch. More on Streaming to Twitch
Creator Studio > Live Streaming > Stream Now
Live Video > Connect
*Make sure you click on "Use a persistent Stream Key" to get a Multi-Use RTMP Key from Facebook.
How to Save a Multi-Use RTMP Destination
In the BoxCast Dashboard, Go to Settings > RTMP Destinations.
Click "Add One" to add a new RTMP Destination.
Name it something that you will allow you to know what destination it is when scheduling such as "My Twitch Page."
Paste in the Server URL and Stream Key.
Set the Max Resolution if it is known (Ex. Facebook is limited to 720p). If it is unknown, set it as None (use highest).
Streaming to a Multi-Use RTMP Destination
On the BoxCast Dashboard go to Schedule a Broadcast. Fill out the information about your broadcast.
Go to `Show Social Media Destination` and click on `Other RTMP.`
Select Multi-Use and then select your target RTMP Destination using the name you gave it before.
If you would like to add a second RTMP destination, click the `Other RTMP`cloud button again.
Please Note: Unlike the streaming with the Facebook, YouTube or Periscope Integrations, the Other RTMP Destination cannot pass the name, description or automatically start a broadcast on that destination for you. You will need to go to that destination and schedule a broadcast with the proper information.
Editing a Multi-Use RTMP Destination
You may edit a Multi-Use RTMP Destination at any point (e.g. if you regenerated your stream key).
by going to the Settings > RTMP Destinations. Click the Box & Pencil icon at the end of the row to edit the RTMP Destination.
Please Note: Changing the RTMP Destination information will affect any current or upcoming broadcasts using that destination.
