Live stream source settings

To start live streaming or grabbing clips, we first need to get your stream (feed) into Studio. Below you will find the stream requirements for ingesting a stream into Studio. Please note these are the maximum recommended stream settings.

Our recommended stream quality for streaming to Twitter and Facebook is 720p, but if you would like to send a 1080p stream, please let us know. 

Stream type: RTMP (preferred) or HLS

Self-serve stream setup:

The ability to update a stream gives you the added flexibility to update your URL in case of last minute changes during the course of an event and also you can switch between different streams to stream different content.


Please note that we still need to set up the encoder for you before your stream will appear live in your account, so please get in touch before your event.

To Enter your stream URL:

  • Select the 'Source' icon on the stream you would like to update in Grabyo Studio
  • Select 'Edit' on the source monitor popup
  • Paste in your stream URL and click 'Save Changes'
  • Your new stream may take a few minutes to update
  • Use the Preview Source Stream monitor to see the source of your stream

For any questions on the stream source settings or to discuss other feed formats please get in touch with the Ops team via
