This is CameraFi Live team.
From the latest update, CameraFi Live started to support Restream.io for multistreaming.
Restream.io is a multistreaming platform which supports 30+ platforms including YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook.
Some users were using Restream.io by Custom RTMP streaming to register RTMP URL and stream key.
With the latest CameraFi Live, you can just use Restream.io by the login.
So, let’s follow step by step for multi-streaming with Restream.io!
