April was a huge month for Restream. We made quite a few important integrations and a few pricing changes 😈 We were also lucky to visit a few important events from the live streaming industry. So keep on reading to find out more 💪
Major pricing update
Restream pricing update consists of two major changes:
⭐️ Extra destinations. We simplified the way we name things. No more Custom RTMPs and Doublings. Now, it’s called as simple as Extra destination.
🎁 Free Facebook Live. Now, you can easily stream to Facebook personal profiles for free.
OBS Studio officially supports Restream’s new set of widgets.
The Restream Chat will now directly appear within OBS once you authorize your account. We’ve also added a real game-changing widget, oh and it also can change your titles 🎮
Facebook Live RTMPS support
On May 1st, Facebook removed RTMP support. The decision was to switch to RTMPS (RTMP over a TSL/SSL connection). Restream has updated to support this new protocol with no changes needed on your end. Just continue streaming, and we take care of the technical part. Just as we always do 😉
