Publishing stream to Periscope

RTMP republishing is widely used by Nimble Streamer users to deliver live streams to various types of destinations, including other media servers, CDNs, YouTube or Twitch.

Periscope live streaming platform also takes RTMP streams as input so our customers use that as a target too. As Periscope requires some additional stream setup, we've created a dialog in our UI to cover that use case.

As a source for your stream you can use any delivery method supported by Nimble Streamer.

Once the input stream is taken by Nimble, you can perform a setup for publishing it to Periscope.

Having the input stream available in Nimble Streamer after input delivery method setup, you can define the re-publishing of this stream via RTMP. Go to Nimble Streamer -> Live Streams Setting menu and click on Republishing tab.

Click on Add Periscope RTMP to see the dialog below.

Here you will fill in the details for our live stream at Periscope and apply same setting to multiple servers if you need. Once you save setting, they will be applied within several seconds.

That's it - the stream will be available at Periscope as soon as you start sending it from Nimble Streamer.

Further usage

You can see some other examples of RTMP republishing:

You may also consider re-publishing incoming RTMP streams with inserted ads. Nimble Advertizer provides a framework for inserting pre-roll and mid-roll ads into live streams for further output via RTMP, SLDP and Icecast with custom business logic and per-user ads. So if you create RTMP stream with ads insertion and pull it for further re-publishing, you can provide your target CDN with properly sponsored content.
Visit Advertizer web page to find out more about server-side ads insertion functionality.

If you need to change the outgoing content in any way, like change the bitrate, use our Live Transcoder for Nimble Streamer to transform. It has high performance and low resource usage.

For other live streaming scenarios, check our live streaming use cases.

Having that, you can create flexible delivery chains using Nimble Streamer for media hubs and WMSPanel for easy-to-use control panel. Install Nimble Streamer if you still haven't done that and contact us if your streaming scenarios need any updates of described functionality.
