What are Ecamm Live's supported streaming platforms?
Ecamm Live integrates directly with Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Periscope, Twitch, Restream.io, and Switchboard. This means you can live stream to the first four platforms using Ecamm Live. If you have an additional account with either Restream.io or Switchboard, you can simulcast to many more platforms via Ecamm Live.
Can I go live to Facebook pages, profiles and groups?
Definitely! Please click below for some resources to get you started going live to Facebook.
What about using Ecamm Live with other programs like video-conferencing and webinar apps?
Ecamm Live is a live streaming production platform. However, Ecamm Live does have a feature called Virtual Camera (Pro only). Which allows you to use Ecamm Live's features in other apps which allow virtual cameras.*
*Not all apps with video feeds allow virtual cameras and some that allow virtual cameras now may not in the future. Ecamm Live does not have control over which apps allow for virtual cameras and which do not.
What about streaming to Instagram?
Ecamm Live does not allow you to live stream to Instagram. Instagram has a closed API and does not allow any apps like ours (or others) to broadcast there.
What about streaming to LinkedIn Live?
Ecamm Live does not currently have an integration with LinkedIn Live, though we hope to add this in the future.* However, you can use a custom stream key to stream to LinkedIn Live (please see instructions below). Another option is to use either Restream or Switchboard Cloud. If you have an account to either of these simulcasting platforms, you can go out via Ecamm Live to LinkedIn. You would simply select Restream or Switchboard in the Ecamm Live destination menu.
*Please note there are no timelines with the potential release of this integration.
So, what do Restream.io and Switchboard Live do?
Restream.io and Switchboard allow you to stream to multiple platforms simultaneously. This is typically called simulcasting or multistreaming. For more details on streaming to multiple platforms check out our FAQ section on this topic.
