You can syndicate to Twitter and have your live-stream appear on Twitter. Twitter requires that you are a Twitter Partner in order to use their non-mobile live-streaming service. For more information: Twitter Media Studio


If you are already have access to Twitter Media Studio, login and navigate to Producer, then the Sources tab, and finally select Create Source.



Then, enter in a Source Name, such as the name of the broadcast on BlueFrame. Select the Source type as RTMP and then select your geographic region. Then click Create.



Now when you select that Source from the Source menu, it will provide you with the RTMP information. You can copy this now, or it will also appear when creating the actual broadcast on Twitter. 



Navigate back to the Twitter Broadcasts tab on Twitter Media Studio and select Create Broadcast in the upper right hand corner. 



Enter in the appropriate information that Twitter requires, such as: Name, Category, Audience, Recurring, etc. For more information regarding certain Twitter broadcast settings: Twitter Media Studio Broadcasts


Note: The Start and Stop times on Twitter are important. Twitter will start the stream automatically at that time and will end the stream automatically at that time. 


Then from the Sources dropdown, you will select the Source you just created. You will then see that RTMP information again.



Now on vCloud or within Production Truck, on your broadcast creation page, go down to "Syndication", and click "Add RTMP Push Endpoint". 


Copy-and-Paste the Source URL and Stream Key from Twitter into the Appropriate fields on vCloud.


Below is an example of what that would look like inputted into vCloud. 


Note: The URL will always be the same, but the Stream Name/Key is unique per broadcast. 



Click Save at the bottom of the broadcast creation page. 


Now back on Twitter Media Studio, navigate down and select Create Broadcast

 


Now when you start your BlueFrame stream in Production Truck, it will begin sending video data to your Twitter event and you will see it populate on Twitter Media Studio in the preview area. 



Note: If you make changes to RTMP information during a stream, you will need to stop the stream and restart it in order for the RTMP information to update.
