Stream to Multiple Providers Simultaneously using Multi destination

Requirements

To access this feature, you must have a Vimeo Producer or Vimeo Premium plan; learn how to subscribe here.

How does it work?

When using multi destination you do not need extra bandwidth/upload speeds. This is due to the Mevo uploading to the Vimeo cloud and it is then distributed by Vimeo to all of the destinations you selected. So no matter how many destinations you select you are only uploading to one source, demonstrated below.

How do I do it?

You may stream to multiple destinations simultaneously via Mevo without the need to increase your local bandwidth. You can choose up to 10 streaming destinations from the built in live of providers or RTMP.

  1. Tap the red button in the bottom left corner of the live edit interface. On the right side, there is a toggle switch labeled Multi Destination. Toggle this on. Multidestination_On_Web.jpg

  2. Then select the providers you wish to stream to and configure them accordingly.
    Click here to see all the destinations we support natively.

    There is a limit of up to 10 simultaneous streaming destinations.

  3. Once each provider's destination is configured, give your stream a title and choose the streaming quality. Keep in mind not all provider's support the same quality types. 

  4. When you're ready to start streaming, tap Go Live. After a moment the stream will start and your event will appear in the native players for each chosen destination. Mevo will indicate that it is simulcasting in the lower left corner of the live edit view.

Troubleshooting Steps

It asks me to upgrade when I toggle multi destination?
Ensure you have a Vimeo Producer or Premium account. Vimeo Pro or Plus do NOT offer this benefit with the Mevo. You can check the account label here. Also ensure you are logged in!Vimeo_LoggedOut_Web.jpgVimeo_Producer_Web.jpg
