How to publish with vMix

  • Dark

vMix is a software vision mixer available for the Windows operating system. The software is developed by StudioCoast PTY LTD. Like most vision mixing software, it allows users to switch inputs, mix audio, record outputs and live stream cameras, videos files, audio, and more in resolutions of up to 4K. It can stream up to three destinations at one time.

In this tutorial, we assume that you have installed vMix on your personal computer.

1. Provide sources

Click the add input button and add an input for the broadcast. As an example, I will add a display input.

As you can see my input has been added successfully and its preview can be seen:

2. Configure vMix

  • Click to the gear icon near the stream button on the bottom.
  • Choose custom RTMP Server in the destination.
  • In the URL box, type your RTMP URL without stream id. It's like rtmp://your_server_domain_name/LiveApp/
  • Forthe stream key, you can write any stream id because we assume that no security option is enabled.
    • If the token is enabled you need to add ?token={yourtokenhere}. It would be like {streamid}?token={yourtokenhere}

3. Tuning

You can use predefined settings but if you click on the gear button next to the quality options, you can select one the options.

  • Profile should be baseline and keyframe latency should be 1.
  • You can set your level and your preset according to your configuration but 3.1 and medium preset is good enough to have a good quality stream.
  • You can enable the hardware encoder for using your GPU in the encoding process.

4. Start streaming

After configuring according to your needs and setting the server address, you can start the streaming by clicking to stream button at the bottom of the dashboard.

As you can see from the following screenshot, it started to stream.

Now you are publishing with vMix!
