RTMP streaming involves sharing various content from your computer—such as the entire screen, specific applications or windows, webcam feed, etc.—to the Stage or Sessions on RingCentral Events, ensuring the best video and audio quality.
During RTMP streaming to a Session or Stage on RingCentral Events, Organizers have the capability to duplicate or mirror an ongoing RTMP stream to another Session.
This functionality proves beneficial when streaming to Stage/Session 1 via RTMP and intending to extend the stream to Session 2 for a live interpretation of the content featured on Stage/Session 1.
Additionally, this feature comes in handy when Stage/Session 1 has reached its maximum viewer capacity, and you wish to extend the content to another Session.
How to set up the RTMP mirror
To set up the mirror, ensure you already have the RTMP stream set up on the Stage or main Session.
Go to the Event Dashboard > Venue > Sessions. Create a new Session by clicking the Add Session button or hover over the Session you would like to work on and click the pencil icon to edit an existing Session.
Find the RTMP settings section and click the checkbox Enable RTMP Streaming. In the next option box, select Stage or Session and then the name of the Stage or Session you want to mirror. Hit Save.
After doing that, the RTMP stream on the Stage/Session will be mirrored into the other Session. Attendees may need to refresh the Session to see the changes if this is done live.
