To begin with RTMP stream setup, one must first have a service set up within the MemoryShare portal, if you are not familiar with this process, please click the button to read the article about setting up a service and continue with this article afterward

Step 1: Finding your information

To access the information that you need to make the connection, click on the red "Go Live!" button

Once you have been brought to the "Live Streaming Program" page

To get the information that you need, you must press the green "Start Stream" button, which will reveal the required information

Step 2: Setting up the stream

Now, launch OBS on the PC that all of your cameras feed through, and click on the settings page, then navigate to the Stream options located directly below General.

Now all you have to do is copy the information from the four boxes in the MemoryShare portal into the four corresponding boxes in the OBS setting.

  • RTMP-> Server

  • Name -> Stream Key

  • User Name -> Username

  • Password -> Password

Then Navigate to Output and make sure your settings are like the following:

Follow this bitrate guide and aim for between 720-1080 depending on the quality of your cameras

Make sure that your Recording Path is to a drive that has space, and in a place that can be easily accessed on your PC

After that, navigate to Video settings

We recommend streaming at 1280x720 as this is the best resolution for both clarity and bandwidth.

Once you are done with your settings, return back to the primary OBS window and navigate to the bottom left where it says Sources.

This is where you add cameras and microphones to your scene. To open up the add source dialogue press the "+" button at the bottom of the sources box.

For Cameras choose Video Input Device, for Microphones choose Audio Input Device, and if you wish to capture sound from your computer (in the case of music) choose Audio Output Device.

Once you choose an input, you will be brought to the property window for that device, make sure to choose the correct device from the dialog to add it, then press "OK" in the bottom right corner

If your video device is properly connected, you should see the camera output in the main preview screen, and when your Audio device is properly connected you will see the volume monitor to the right of the sources to bounce with audio.

Step 3: Time to start streaming!

Once this has all been set, click the OK button in the corner, and you are ready to stream! Verify that your framing is good and that your audio/video sources are connected properly and press both the "Start Streaming" button and "Start Recording", generally located in the bottom right of the standard OBS window.

If everything is connected properly, the live button at the bottom will turn blue and the timer will move forward.

Step 4: The upload

To upload a file that has been recorded locally to your computer, follow the link to the external uploading guide and start at Step 3 of the section titled "Once you have found the file"
