Getting Started with RTMP
If you haven't already, begin by following the RTMP Getting Started tutorial. You'll need your publish token and stream name for the steps described below.
See the official Haivision site for documentation, installation instructions, and additional support.
To get started, log in to your Dolby.io account. Enter your KB web interface, switch views to the Channel Control Center, and create a new channel.
Follow the Create Channel Wizard prompts to create a channel as normal:
- Enter the desired channel name.
- Identify your live source for the channel input.
- Choose RTMP for the channel output and copy the RTMP publish path from the Publishing tab of the stream token.
- Enter the RTMP publish stream name from your Dolby.io Streaming Dashboard.
With the broadcast credentials set up, the stream is ready to go live. To view the stream, navigate back to your newly created token and switch to the Playback tab. From the Playback tab, copy the Hosted Player path URL and open it in your browser.
Here are some adjustments recommended by the Haivision support team:
|In Input settings||Change Timestamps from System Time to Zero-Based*|
|In Video Encoder settings > Settings tab||Change the Framing from IBBP to IP|
|In the Advanced tab||Change the Codec Present to Baseline|
|Set GOP||Fixed Mode with 2000ms|
|Set Entropy coding mode||CABAC|
|Set Recommended Bitrate||4,000 @ 720p|
*Note: The timestamp seeding seemed to be the magic change on the KBs.
