You can actually use Restream for free.
You can have “Forever Free” for everyone where you can do 30 plus streaming platforms globally and you can do no limit on bitrate and monitor the stream quality.
This, I imagine, is enough for 90 to 95 percent of live streamers unless you want to use Facebook in which case you need the “Standard,” which is a $16 a month payment. If you want to just do one Facebook channel, this will be plenty for you.
You get the “Forever Free” plus you can do the real-time platform and channel toggling, which is really helpful for starting and stopping your live streams. That way you don’t just have to send your stream and start immediately, but you can actually turn on and off individual platforms, which I love doing it that way.
What I’m using, I’m on the Company plan because it takes off Restream branding, gives me additional analytics and audience insights.
So the one I’m on is the “Premium,” which is $83 a month. It has up to five custom destinations.
Currently, I’m just using one and it also allows no Restream branding, which I like because that just keeps things simple. I have enough of my own brand, I prefer not to have any other branding on mine.
You also can use some additional features and you have got premium support. I love the analytics and audience insights because I can see how many people are watching in real time and I can see how many people are chatting across all platforms at once.
You probably don’t need that option though. I would say that at the most, you might want the “Standard.”
The “Forever Free” is fine if you don’t want to do Facebook, but more than likely you are going to want to do Facebook.
Therefore, the “Standard” plan at $16 a month gives you one Facebook channel you can do.
There are also add-ons for transcoding.
There is a simple way to not need transcoding though. Just live stream at 1,280 by 720 as your resolution. Do 60 frames per second and you shouldn’t need any transcoding.
Therefore, I don’t need any transcoding.
Transcoding is nice if for some reason you do want to live stream at 1,920 by 1,080, 60 frames per second, and you can use transcoding then to put it to specific destinations at a lower resolution.
However, it’s easier to just put it out in one format, and then record. What I do is record in 1,920 by 1,080, 60, then I can have highlights that are maximum resolution.
This is the pricing for Restream and you can easily try it forever free. I highly recommend streaming to Facebook though, so therefore, the $16 a month plan is what you might want.
Notice I had these on the yearly discount.
So, if you just pay monthly, it’s $19 a month for the “Standard.”
