In order to stream to the Blue Frame Technology service through an RTMP connection via xSplit, you will need to login to the vCloud Streaming Service with your credentials provided by BlueFrame Technology.
Note: RTMP streams will be valid from 01:00:00 before the broadcast's scheduled date, until 01:00:00 after the broadcast is stopped, so it is important to correctly input the time and test in accordance with that time window.
Enabling RTMP on your Broadcast
Now, to create your RTMP broadcast go to Manage Broadcasts, or Broadcast Grid. At the top right hand side of the page click Operations, and Create Broadcast or if you have already created your broadcast you will need to edit it.
Once your broadcast is setup, go to the Alternate Sources box, and change the Alt Sources drop down from None to RTMP. After this is done, simply go to the bottom of the page and click Create.
Once created you can go back to the Manage Broadcasts or Broadcast Grid page and click on the “i” icon or magnifying glass for more information about the broadcast.
This is where you will find your RTMP information and where you can watch the video player when you go live.
Inputting the Information into xSplit
With XSplit open, navigate to Broadcast, then Set up a New Output, then choose Custom RTMP. The custom RTMP broadcast properties will appear.
You will then input the Host information (from vCloud) into the RTMP URL field and the Stream Name (from vCloud) in the Stream Name field.
Now with the information input, you are ready to stream!
