Livepush multistreaming dashboard is a rich featured dashboard offering real-time analytics, multi-chat, cloud recordings, RTMP pulls, webcam streaming, live stream Titles and more, but knowing what feature to access from where is essential to make use of the features effectively.

Let's start examining the Multistream dashboard by its layout;

In essence, Multistream dashboard is divided in to 4 main pieces:
1. Top Right side: Real-time Stream Statistics
2. Right side: Video Preview
3. Right Bottom side: Publish Details & Tools
4. Left side: Stream Configurations

1. Top Right: Real-time stream statistics

This is the place where we show you if Livepush is receiving a live stream and shows live streams stats incl.; Online/Offline, Bitrate, FPS, Key Frames Interval, Video Resolution, Video Codecs and live stream uptime.

Take a look into another example where Livepush is receiving a live video;

2. Right side: Live Video Preview

This is the place where you see the preview of the video when the live stream starts to go live.

3. Right Bottom: Ingest Details & Publish Tools

This is from where you would capture your RTMP ingest server streaming keys. If you take a closer look, you would see this section is sub-divided in to Four (4) sub sections;

1. RTMP Ingests
2. Live Webcam
3. Static Pull URL
4. Health Monitor

  1. RTMP Ingests:
    This section shows you the RTMP ingest server address and stream key, which you could use to configure you encoder device to send your stream to Livepush.

    This view consists of two main elements;
    "Streaming Server" aka: RTMP server address
    "Streaming Key" aka: RTMP stream-key

  2. Live Webcam:
    This section enables you to go live your webcame and do not require anything else but just a working webcam.

    To go live from your webcam all you need to do is to select your webcam device from the device(only if you have multiple webcams installed) or let the dashboard automatically select the default webcam for you.Now you can start streaming by click on the [button] coming on top of your webcam preview and start going live.

  3. Static Pull URL:
    This section lets go live from another live stream Pull URL (could be any live stream Pull URL).

    A Pull URL is a URL you can use to download or watch the live video on your device or media player.
    Suppose your friend is going live to some website or is streaming free movies, you can ask your friend to give you a Pull URL for their live stream(s) and you can copy that URL into your media player or encoder device to see the vide at your end too.

    In the same way, Livepush asks you if you want to live stream from a Pull URL instead. All you need is to paste a working Pull URL into the "Static Pull URL" input field and click "Save Pull URL", now in a moment you see the preview for that live video in your dashboard.

    Moreover, Pull URL could be very useful for a number of cases, some are listed below;
    1. IP Camera RSTP Pull: Publishing a live video via Livepush whose encoder is streaming somewhere else .
    2. To multi-stream a live video from your private media server (which do not support multi streaming)

  4. Health Monitor:
    This section gives you a fancy graph/chart showing frequency of streaming bytes Livepush server is receiving from your encoder or producer device.

    The purpose is to give you complete transparency with the ingestion between your content and Livepush servers, so if you encounter an issue while streaming this graph could come handy for basic diagnosis

4. Left side: Stream Configurations

This is the "main" view where do you keep all your configurations regarding your Multistream and is further categorized into four(4) sub sections.

  1. Publish Destinations

  2. Stream Titles

  3. Stream Recaps
