How to use Vimeo Premium to stream from an RTMP source into a Samba Live session

This is a great way to stream from an RTMP source while keeping Samba Live features:

  1. Go to your Vimeo account.
  2. Click on Live Events on the left side menu.
  3. Click on Create Live Event.
  4. Give your Live Event a title and make sure to select "One time" and Public as your options, as Samba Live doesn't support unlisted or event video URLs yet.
  5. Click on Next.

  6. Save the live stream Link that appears on the left side menu. This link will be the URL you'll use on the Samba Live Platform.
  7. Fill up the rest of the information as you please. Remember to leave the Viewing Privacy option as Public.
  8. Click on Next.

  9. Now click on the Connect (RTMPS) option and configure the settings for your RTMP server on the left side menu.

Note: You can use some Vimeo video processing options in the menu mentioned in step #9, including adding lower third graphics or logo graphics.

 10.  Click on Go Live.


 
 11.  Go to your Samba Live session.

 12.  Add the Vimeo URL/Link that you saved before through the Content Library, and you're good to go. If you don't know how to display a Vimeo video through the Content Library already, this article will help you. 

 Tip: If you don't own Encoding Software already, Vimeo Studio is a great option included with the membership.
