Periscope custom streaming/recording (RTMP) setup

You can stream a Pexip conference to Periscope and then share links to that conference with other people. See Live event streaming and recording for details about other streaming options.

To stream a conference to Periscope:

  1. Go to and select Create New Source > Normal Source:

  2. You are given a Server URL and Stream Name/Stream Key:

  3. Set up the live stream from your VMR as described in Using a custom RTMP stream/recording integration in the Pexip app.

    When either scheduling or creating an ad hoc stream you need to input the ingest/server URL provided by Periscope.

  4. Return to Periscope and select Preview Broadcast. After a short delay you should see a preview of the video to be streamed. Add a title and select the viewing permissions. When you are ready, select Go Live:

  5. The video will now be available live to your followers. To view it and see and any comments as they are posted, select View Broadcast. This will open a new window with the URL for the broadcast, which you can then share and use to access the broadcast when it is finished.
  6. When you have finished, select Stop Broadcast.
