In recent years, live streaming on social media platforms like Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Twitch, and Instagram has taken the internet by storm, with businesses and marketing agencies jumping on to the bandwagon, using live streaming to boost their social media presence and market their products in an already very competitive arena.
Hence, the need and requirement to stream professionally recorded video content. Limited availability of simple and efficient cloud-based tools are, however, hindering businesses to join the wonderful world of live streaming.
OneStream Live solves this problem in a very effective way by eliminating the need of technical knowledge or software installation to stream pre recorded videos to Facebook Live, YouTube, Twitch, & Instagram.
Why OneStream Live?
No technical knowledge required to live stream. OneStream’s very simple and intuitive dashboard makes a recorded video go live in just few clicks.
No software installations required. OneStream is cloud-based, meaning you do not have to install any lousy software. You can use it from anywhere in the world without having to carry any hardware with you and not have to worry about bandwidth bottlenecks while live streaming. End users on Facebook, YouTube or any other social media platform can enjoy uninterrupted and crisp HD live streams.
Schedule live streams. Pre-recorded video content can be scheduled to go live on multiple chosen channels including Facebook Groups/Pages, YouTube as well as Twitch, Instagram and any custom RTMP destination.
Multiple social accounts management. Based on the subscription plan, different number of social accounts can be managed efficiently in parallel.

Live streaming becomes extremely easy and fun when you use OneStream Live. However, setting up live streaming is not easy even for a tech-savvy person. Most non-technical people will just give up after 15-20 minutes of trying. When it comes to pre-recorded videos there is hardly any cloud-based solution available other than OneStream Live. With other ready-made live streaming solutions, you have to install a software e.g OBS or Wirecast. Set it up, configure some technical details like bit rates, frame rates, video formats etc. and then hope that it works. OneStream Live makes live streaming so simple that anyone can stream their videos live in less than 5 minutes. It takes away all the pain and circumvents all the cumbersome tasks of setting up streams and lets you focus on your customers.
