ATOMOS connected products allow you to live stream content to online platforms through your Atomos Cloud Studio account at atomos.cloud. Destinations can be set as Twitch, YouTube Live, Facebook Live and Custom RTMP.
The Custom RTMP destination allows you to connect and stream to destinations other than the platforms listed in the box below. You can add platforms that support RTMP stream publishing and provides an RTMP URL and Streaming Key.
Not all RTMP destinations are supported. If you find that there are other destinations that are working, please contact our support team to let us know. We will conduct tests and consider adding them to the options.
Due to the large quantity of streaming and social media platforms that accept custom RTMP ingestion for live streaming, we haven't been able to test every available option.
