ATOMOS Stream is designed to make live streaming to popular platforms like YouTube Live, Facebook Live and Twitch easier. You can choose to work with high-end digital cinema cameras, mirrorless cameras, DSLR, USB cameras or even iOS devices and stream content live to these popular online platforms through your Atomos Cloud Studio account.
In order to stream content from your Atomos Cloud Studio account to one of these platforms, first you will need what is called a Stream Key. This is a unique code generated by each platform, that provides information on where to send the video stream. The following provides guidance on generating a stream key and setting up for streaming on each of the platforms.
Live Streaming is not available if H.265 is selected as the record codec.
Streaming is only available when using standard YCC 422 video inputs.
Facebook Live is currently not available as a destination for streaming, and will be enabled in a future firmware update.
Changing resolutions and frame rate when Live Streaming mode is enabled may result in the stream stopping. Switching between Record and play back mode will allow the stream to restart. Press the LIVE button to stop stream before changing inputs, resolutions or frame rates.
Streaming to YouTube Live
When using your SHOGUN CONNECT to stream to YouTube Live, your device is viewed as an encoder, and must be set up in YouTube as such.
How to create a YouTube live stream
Navigate to youtube.com and sign in to your YouTube account. Create an account if you do not already have one.
If you have not yet verified your YouTube channel, you will need to verify your channel before proceeding
NOTE: Before being able to live stream to YouTube, you need to enable live streaming. YouTube requires that you have no live streaming restrictions in the past 90 days and that you verify your channel. Enabling a live stream for the first time may take up to 24 hours.
A pop-up may appear, asking you to choose when to go live. Options are Right Now and at a Later Date. Click the Start icon in one of the boxes to proceed. If you select Right Now, you will then need to select Streaming Software as the type of stream from the next pop-up screen. The YouTube studio will open.
In the popup box that appears, add a description for the stream and click on the drop-down arrow at Server to select a server to use. Right click in the Streaming Key field and select Paste, to paste the YouTube Live streaming key that you copied. Click on Done to save the destination settings.
A preview screen at the top of the YouTube Studio settings page will display the image from your camera. The words LIVE and the elapsed time of the stream will be displayed whilst you are live streaming to YouTube.
