Intro

Take your streaming to the next level with an amazing lineup of game-changing new features and updates for Restream Studio.

These new features help you level up your streaming capabilities (RTMP Source), produce high-quality podcasts and promos (Split Track Recording), interact with your community (Chat Overlay), make your stream more engaging (Background Music and Animated Backgrounds), and overall just stream easier (improved Local Videos and full-screen mode)!

We know it’s tough to keep up with every single Restream update and we’re excited to catch you up with a brief recap to help you take advantage of all these new updates for your stream. Let’s dive in!

🤩 RTMP Source

Available on premium plan and above

One of our major updates was RTMP Source, which allows you to connect Restream Studio directly to other software like OBS Studio, Zoom, vMix, XSplit, and more. This gives you the best of both worlds: all of Restream Studio’s features plus the features from the software of your choice!

RTMP Source in Restream Studio

With RTMP Source you can unlock up to 1,000 stream participants through Zoom, and connecting to OBS lets you apply additional overlays, change lower thirds, and keep your branding displayed regardless of the camera source. You can also connect two cameras and use RTMP Source as a fallback for your broadcasts to protect them from sudden drops.

🔈 Split Track Recording

Available on professional plan and above

Our new Split Track Recording feature gives you the ability to download the recorded audio tracks as separate files after your stream has ended. With separate audio files at your fingertips, editing is a snap! Split Track Recording lets you easily produce professional podcasts, high-quality highlights of your broadcasts, and clean teasers to promote your live streams on social media.

💬 Chat Overlay

Available on all free and paid plans

Do you want your live streams to be even more engaging? To build your community across multiple platforms faster? With Chat Overlay you can display incoming messages from all streaming platforms, allowing you and your audiences from different platforms (such as Facebook and YouTube) to interact with each other all in one place!

In addition to fostering cross-platform discussions between your audiences, Chat Overlay also allows you to see the avatars of viewers who connect their Facebook accounts to Restream, making it that much easier to build personal connections and highlight the most active people. Try it for yourself!

🎵 Background Music

Available on all free and paid plans

Tired of searching for copyright-free music for your stream? The perfect soundtrack for your stream is now at your fingertips! Our new Background Music feature lets you add free music to your stream so you’ll never have to worry about copyright, licensing, or royalties again.

Background Music can quickly communicate your brand and help attract the right audience. Choose from genres including chill, pop, hip hop, and more to find just the right sound for your stream. All tracks are generated by AI and are infinite in length — meaning you’ll have music for your entire stream without needing to change tracks or playlists.

💫 Animated Backgrounds

Available on all free and paid plans

Delight your audience and keep them engaged with our new Animated Backgrounds in Restream Studio! Choose from four Animated Backgrounds in the Backgrounds tab or upload your own. Adding an Animated Background is a great way to establish the vibe of your stream, increase its polish and production value, and stand out from the crowd.

✅ Improved Local Videos

Available on all free and paid plans

With our new and improved Local Videos feature you can now play video files from your computer! We’ve optimized the performance and stability of this feature and have expanded access so your guests can also play their Local Videos during your stream.

Sharing a Local Video is a super easy way to enhance your stream with pre-recorded content such as product demos, educational videos, pre-rolls, post-rolls, and more. Try it out and take your event, interview, or talk show to the next level!

🖥 Go Full-Screen in Studio

Available on all free and paid plans

Full-screen option in Restream Studio

Our new full-screen option in Restream Studio lets you expand your host stream preview so you can focus purely on your broadcast or your guests and hide Studio’s UI elements from your view. This feature is especially great for interviews, podcasts, and educational webinars. And don’t worry — you can still enable the Chat Overlay feature in full-screen mode!
