Add Streaming Channels & Manage Live Streaming from Dashboard

Bigbluebutton Host Support

Last Update 2 anni fa

After atleast one BBB Server & one RTMP Endpoint added on Settings page , navigate to the

Dashboard > Live Stream


Note :

If you haven’t added at least one BBB Server & one RTMP Endpoint you will see an pop up warning displaying the same warning & guide you to Settings page to add those first .


Otherwise you should see “ Streaming Channels “ and a “ Create ” Button on left-side .

After clicking the " Create " button a pop-up will appear with some input fields as below.

Stream Name < Put any suitable Stream name which you can recognise later >


Stream Description < Anything you may want to keep Note about this Streaming >


Maximum Duration < How long the streaming duration required ? >


Example : If a Bigbluebutton Session scheduled for Maximum 90 Minutes , you can Set Max Duration 100 Minutes or something around that .
  • This will automatically End the Live Stream after 100 Minutes of Streaming Started .
  • It may help the moderator to focus on the Sessions , without worrying about Stopping the Live Stream , kind of a safety feature to avoid wastage of Streaming Credits .

BigBlueButton Server < choose a BBB server >


Choose the Bigbluebutton Server in which your Session is running . All BigBlueButton Servers you have added previously , will be listed as Dropdown .


Meeting Room < choose a running meeting room >


Choose the Running Bigbluebutton meeting room or session you want to stream . BBBRoom will fetch all the running meeting rooms in the particular BigBlueButton server & list as dropdown .


RTMP Endpoint < Choose a RTMP Endpoint >


Choose the Streaming Endpoint , where you want to stream to .


Example : You have added previously your YouTube , Facebook , Twitch , Vimeo RTMP Credentials . All those RTMP Endpoint Names will appear as dropdown . You can choose any of them you want for this to use.

Below are the Additional Configurations for Live Streaming , By Default we recommend not to change Settings , keep as default unless you understand these properly .
