Microsoft Teams to get RTMP Streaming to third parties like Restream YouTube and Twitch


Microsoft Teams is going to get support to sending a RTMP stream to third-party platforms like YouTube, Restream and Twitch.

Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) was initially a proprietary protocol developed by Macromedia for streaming audio, video and data over the Internet but is now released for public use.

A popular scenario for this might be streaming a webinar to YouTube to give viewers a public option to view.

You can already do this indirectly by using the NDI support to take the feed into tools like OBS and then push that to live streaming services, but this will make the process much simpler.

Couple this up with the Webinar features and high fidelity audio and Teams has some interesting new options for large public events.
