It’s hard to choose a service these days. With so many Streaming services and differences between them, trying to choose the right one for you can be very difficult. Well, hold onto your straight jackets, because I might have a solution for you. Restream.io is an amazing website that allows you to multistream, or simulcast, your content to multiple platforms at the same time.
Getting Started with Restream.io
Starting from the start page, all you need is a simple login to get into the website. From there, you’ll be presented with a menu to guide you to what you want to do. As you can see, you can add or remove as many services as you would like to. The servers are auto-detected so it picks the best servers for each streaming service that you select.
Restream integrates with more than 30 livestream platforms including Twitch, Facebook, YouTube, and Kick with the option of adding more services if you have the Server Key and RTMP of the service. It’s mind-blowing that you can use the service to basically broadcast anywhere, everywhere, all at once! They offer a sub service as well where, for 5 dollars, you can stream to the same service such as Twitch in two different channels. So for those who are running tournaments or shoutcasting, it might be a great option to broadcast!
Performance and wear on your PC
Just like ANY streaming service, make sure that you have the PC to run the service that Restream offers. It treats the broadcast as one broadcast and then does the work to send it to separate sites, so the wear on your PC and connection isn’t like broadcasting multiple times at the same time. I appreciate that and have tested the website for weeks now. My stream looks great at every website I’ve chosen and also has no slowdown or lag. The service delivers what it promises.
If you’re looking to branch out or move services and want to make multi-streaming a thing for your channel, Restream.io is the way to go. The website offers a TON of services for FREE and allows you to stream to as many as you would like with minimal wear to your PC. However, one thing to note is that some partnership agreements will prevent you from streaming on other sites, so be sure to check your partnership agreement if you have one before trying this out.
