    1. If you choose Broadcast Live Event you can now use OBS software for your stream by clicking Stream Custom RTMP.
    2. For the best streaming experience, we recommend using the below OBS settings:
      • Base (Canvas) Resolution: 1920x1080 (FullHD),
      • Common FPS values: 30,
      • Video Bitrate: 3000kbps.
    3. Copy Stream RTMP and Stream Key from the platform, place them in OBS settings and click OK, now you successfully connected OBS with the platform.
    4. When broadcasting is connected the only thing you need to do to start streaming is to click Start Streaming in OBS and Start Event in the platform’s top right corner. Congratulations you’re live! :)
