Software Encoders

For best performance and easiest setup, we recommend you stream using LDE (our customised version of the industry-standard streaming software OBS). Setup guides for LDE can be found here.

If you would like to stream using different streaming software, please make sure that the software supports:

  • RTMP or SRT streaming protocols
  • H264 / x264 video
  • AAC or Opus audio
  • Ability to set B frames to 0
  • Ability to set Keyframe Interval of 2 or less
