Streaming Vimeo to Restream Scheduler
You will need to ensure that you have the correct Restream account and that it accounts for the number of pre-recorded videos that you will need to upload. There is a limit of 10 pre-recorded slots per account and for each scheduled video, you will require a separate custom RTMP. For example – 10 scheduled videos occurring in one day would need 10 custom RTMP’s. Some videos may experience a delay. Please test your video prior to the event.
- Create a Live Event
Head onto Vimeo and click on the Live Events tab. Click Create a Live Event on Vimeo. Choosing Recurring will allow you to reuse the URL embed into Glisser (recommended). Do not choose a start time or date. We recommend selecting the privacy hide from Vimeo.
- Customize Video
Press Next. Here you can edit and customize your video (most customization options are on the Embed tab).
- Event Embed Code
Head to the embed tab at the top and choose Event embed code. You’ll need to copy just a portion of the code – it should look something like https://vimeo.com/event/1329230/embed. This is the code you’ll need to paste into Glisser.
- Add to Glisser
Head to Glisser and paste the copied code into your session (Edit session, Live streaming tab, choose Vimeo as the stream source provider, paste into box). You’re now linked to Glisser.
- Connect RTMP
Head back to Vimeo and select the Next button at the top right. You’ll have a preview of your webcam, you’ll need to select the Connect (RTMP) and you’ll see the heading Connect to your encoding software. Below are the keys that you’ll need to embed into Restream.
