How to test it?
Go live on Youtube or Twitch straight from the settings menu. No need to configure anything, just login and you're live!
Don't worry if you do not have an RTMP server ready, as you can use ours. In the Settings Screen under Server URL there is a predefined URL with a random streamName. You can watch and share your live streaming here: http://play.streamaxia.com/streamName
If you have an RTMP server available... Perfect! Go to Settings Screen under Server URL fill in your server details. For example: rtmp://188.8.131.52/application/streamName
In the Settings Screen you will be able to tune your live streaming settings:
Frame Rate: the frequency at which frames in a video sequence are displayed (measured in fps)
Key Frame Interval: The Key Frame Interval is the number of reference frames that are created before a NEW and complete image is generated to be used as a reference for the new incomplete image frames, which only contain the differences from the Key Frame image used.
Bitrate: refers to the number of bits—or the amount of data—that are processed over a certain amount of time.
ServerURL: the URL to the RTMP server ( rtmp://mycompany.com/vod/mycoolvideo | vod= application name | mycoolvideo= streamName)
Server Authentication: a username and password field used to create a connection with a server that uses RTMP authentication. The Server URL is formatted as follows: rtmp://user:firstname.lastname@example.org/application/streamName
- codecs: H.264/AAC
- protocols: RTMP and RTMPS
- Settings: Resolution, Frame Rate, Keyframe Rate, Bitrate (or adaptive), Server Link, Stream Name, Credentials and more...
