live streaming through an RTMP

Encoder settings are pivotal configurations enabling the connection of a live video channel through any encoder compatible with the MojoCP video platform. These settings encompass essential parameters like bitrate, resolution, codec, and other vital aspects crucial for a seamless broadcast onto the MojoCP platform. Tailoring the encoder settings ensures your live video stream is finely tuned for superior quality, optimal performance, and seamless compatibility within the MojoCP ecosystem. Mastering these settings is integral to the smooth setup and successful broadcast of live video feeds through MojoCP.

RTMP Encoder Settings

Certain online platforms utilize RTMP servers such as Wowza and comparable services. These servers typically require user authentication through your designated username and password.

Generating a Stream File:
Navigate to the MojoCP dashboard and go to Services > Application name > Encoder Settings.
There are various encoder settings available for your live streaming, including options for software like OBS, VID Blaster, Wirecast, vMix, and also configurations optimized for streaming live content from mobile devices. (Let's illustrate this with OBS as our example.)

Open OBS Studio and from Mojocp copy and paste the information found in the Live Streaming box under the "Encoder Settings Tab" to your encoder.

It will resemble something similar to the following

  • FMS URL: rtmp://222.444.555.888:1935/livetv
  • Stream Key: livetv
  • Username: livetv
  • Password: demo

In OBS, navigate to 'Output' located on your left screen:

  • Output mode: Select 'Advanced.'
  • Encoder: Choose 'x264.'
  • Rate Control: Set to 'CBR.'
  • Bitrate: Adjust this based on your stream plan; you can also find this information on the Overview page in MojoCP.
  • Buffering: Set to '2500.'
  • Keyframe Interval: Optimal settings range from 1 to 2.
  • CPU Usage: Set to 'Medium.'
  • Profile: Select 'High.'
  • Tune: Choose 'Zerolatency.'

    Next, move to the 'Audio' tab in OBS under 'General' and configure as follows:

  • Sample Rate: Set to '48 kHz.'
  • Channels: Choose 'Stereo.'

    Click 'Apply' and then 'OK' to save the changes. You're now prepared to commence YOUR live streaming by clicking 'Start Streaming' in OBS."
