Streaming in Greenroom

Besides being a video production tool, Greenroom is also a streaming tool that encodes to a cloud source, allowing you to stream to any preferred destination. Greenroom's built in RTMP functionality also allows you to stream directly to your associated event page. In this article, we'll go through the stream settings, how to stream, and how to terminate a stream.

Overview of Streaming in Greenroom

Stream Settings

Streaming in Greenroom is plug and play, with little configuration needed. When navigating to the "Streaming" panel (Gear Icon > Streaming), you'll have three configurable options.

  • A toggle to turn streaming on or off.
  • Adding an alternative streaming destination
  • Output quality. By default, Greenroom is set to 1080p with the ability to toggle down to 720p or 480p.

How to Stream

Your streaming status is displayed in a colored pill at the top of the page, to the left of the clock. Upon the Producers entry into the Greenroom, the room will prepare itself for streaming with a status that says "Getting Ready".

After the streaming tool has loaded (within 2 minutes), you'll see "Stream" in green, which you can then click on to start streaming.  There is also a drop down option to "Record Only"
