Publication services

The publication service helps you send video output to a remote station. It is a virtual broadcast to deliver a live video to many or single destinations.

Specify in the Publication services where the stream should be pulled over.

HLS (memfs) & HLS (diskfs)

Default In this case we use the HLS stream of the channel and push it to the desired destination. Latency: What the user has set (min. 10-30 sec.)


Take the stream from the RTMP server if the channel is enabled as shown in "2. Channel Edit > Processing & Control". Latency: 1-2 sec.


As for RTMP. Latency: <1 sec.

An active user account on the external video streaming service is a prerequisite for using Publication Services.

Instructions for the settings of the target services can be found on the target platform. Keywords for research are: "External RTMP" or " External HLS".

What is a Publication Service?

There are many Publication Services. Any number of new services can be created for different platforms. The procedure for using publication services is always very similar. The datarhei Restreamer is connected to the external service via a streaming key. Then the video stream is started on the service, in this example, YouTube.
