Multi-Use RTMP destinations allow you to save RTMP Server URLs and RTMP stream keys so that they can be used at any point. This works with any unchanging stream key from your destination. There are often described as "static," "consistent," or "persistent" stream keys depending on your target destination.

How to Find RTMP URL + Stream Key

This will depend on what service you are using but here are examples of a few popular services.

Twitch

The Stream Key and URL are in different locations on Twitch. Learn more about streaming to Twitch.

Note: Unlike streaming with the Facebook, YouTube or Periscope Integrations, the Other RTMP Destination cannot pass the name, description or automatically start a broadcast on that destination for you. You will need to go to that destination and schedule a broadcast with the proper information.
