Using RTMP Output (Social Networks interface)

Need to stream your live content to Social Network Platforms ? Quortex Play supports RTMP(S) as output protocol which allows to send your transcoded content to such platforms and expand your audience via Social Networks.

This article describes how to configure Quortex to enable RTMP(S) outputs.

Push endpoints

The configuration of the Input, Processing, Targets is made as usual. RTMP(S) output are configured in a specific tab called "Push endpoints".
Open the "Push endpoint" tab and add an endpoint as shown below.

Click on "Add and configure" to open the end point configuration window.
Input: Select the source to be sent
Processing: RTMP does not support ABR profiles. You need to select the specific transcoding profile (video + audio) to use for the RTMP output.
Output: Fill your Social Network URL in the Remote URL field, as well as the Stream key that identifies your account in the the Social Network platform.
Name your end point
Click on "Add" to complete the configuration. This triggers the connection between Quortex Play and the RTMP destination. This may take some time to establish the connection (minute).
