Until I discovered Restream.io which I was rather impressed by. Restream.io allows you to stream on multiple platforms simultaneously. Honestly, discovering this tool has made setting up for live streams more fun. I am able to livestream on Periscope/Twitter, YouTube and Twitch at the same time. And I can focus on updating titles, sending out messages that I’m going live instead of worrying about setting up multiple devices.
And instead, I can focus my energy on updating my OBS setup!
The best part about this service is it allows me to stream on three outlets at once which is great for me especially with wanting to livestream my drawing session and not wanting to exclude a part of my followers. I mean with the exception of Instagram and Facebook live, I feel I have a wider reach than if I streamed on one platform.
If you’re interested, feel free to check it out. If not, no worries. But if you’re someone wanting to share your streams on more than one platform to reach more of your audience. I think it’s worth checking out. I mean I think it’s pretty cool and generous that you can stream up to three outlets for free. Anything more than that, and I think you have to pay for the Pro version, which I’m intrigued to try in the future and let you guys know if it’s worth the hype or not.
Which based on all the features you get for just the free account, it is pretty impressive to me, you get stats and a consolidated chat window so you can keep up with your audience. While I may not have the audience currently watching my livestreams I think this will be an excellent tool going forward.
For now, check it out and let me know your thoughts, and feel free to let me know about other services out there that you know.
& Stay Awesome,
