How to stream your IP camera to Twitch Live with LiveBox247

With Twitch Live, there is a simple to set up and free service to host your IP camera live stream and embed it into your website (and also show it in your twitch.tv).

1. Get the camera stream URL

The video stream URL is usually visible in your camera settings in streaming/video/h.264/RTSP sections. If you cannot find it there, a short google search of you camera model/vendor and ‘RTSP’ or ‘video stream’ should help. Or install software Onvif Device Manager on your PC. Open it, you will see your RTSP url like this

H.264 encoding is required.

The URL needs to be accessible from LiveBox247 servers. This probably requires a port forwarding, dynamic dns setup on your side. Or a static IP – the best.

2. Set up Twitch

1. Open a web browser and go to www.twitch.tv/dashboard

2. You should now see a login page, please enter your credentials and log in.

3. After logging in, your Twitch Dashboard should be open. Under Dashboard look for the tab called Settings and click on it.

5. You will now see a warning that says never share your Stream Key. At the bottom of that warning click, I Understand.

6. Now your Stream Key should be displayed.

7. Your Stream URL for twitch will always be rtmp://live.twitch.tv/app/{your_stream_key}

3. And go on Twitch
