Local streaming lets you broadcast to your local area network.

You can also add your own local streaming broadcast output as a source on XSplit Broadcaster from another device or stream to another software.

Note: An updated Java Runtime Environment or JRE is required for this to work.

Locating the RTMP URL

  • After starting a Local Streaming broadcast, click here on the prompt dialog box at the bottom-right corner of your screen. This will open a browser page providing the RTMP credentials.
