Syndicate Live Video to Periscope

Syndicate live video to Periscope with just the stream key and RTMP URL.

Before You Start

You need to know the Stream Key and RTMP URL for the account you want to syndicate to.

Find the Server URL and Stream Key

  • Enter the following URL in a browser.

  • Log in with your Twitter crendentials.
  • Be sure to copy and save the "Server URL" and the "Stream Name / Stream Key."
Here are some considerations about Live Syndication:
  • Live Syndication only works with the Ooyala Package as the Packaging Partner and Ooyala Encode as the Encoding Partner.
  • A channel must be stopped to enable syndication.
  • Enabling social media syndication does not start syndicating the stream. You must click start next to an enabled social media stream to start syndicating to a social media platform.
  • Anything streaming on the channel is syndicated to any social media that has been enabled and is running. Schedules and events don't impact what is being syndicated.
  • Ad-hoc channels that have scheduled events automatically stop 30 minutes after the last scheduled event. Any syndication that is running on the ad-hoc channel is stopped when the channel is stopped.
  • Syndication to a 24x7 channel runs continuously until the syndication stream is stopped or the channel is stopped. Facebook enforces a 240 minute maximum time limit for live syndication.
  • You can enable syndication to social media as part of creating a new channel.
