Intuitive Live Streaming Platform

Overall I really like Restream and their customer support when talking to the right people is very good.

They could do with being more on the ball with what their competitors offer as I think they were ahead of the game initially but are missing features that others are now offering which makes them not the leader like they think they are. This comes across a little in their customer support at times.

Pros

1. The Livestudio system they offer is a very simple yet feature rich system to be able to do live and recorded videos. It also allows you to stream prerecorded videos as part of a live stream.
2. The Scheduling system to stream pre-recorded videos is great to ensure mitigate any risks in your own internet going down during important video streams.

Cons

1. The quality of the livestream video is very dependent on your own bandwidth so even if using it for making a recorded video, the quality is not as good as it could be, so it can't be used to make quality offline videos, which it should be able to.
I dont like that the local videos you upload to stream live actually still come from your own machine and not from their server even though it has been uploaded, this means that you are still limited by your own bandwidth. Competitors get round this by allowing any uploaded videos more than a few hours old to stream from their servers.
2. They have a limited time of 10 minutes before you can schedule a video which is not competitive as competitors such as Castr offer a 1 minute scheduling. This is important for when you need to schedule an emergency video

Over 2+ years Restream has allowed me to build a positive and interactive community across the internet and has expanded my audience and friendships along the way, if it wasn't for restream then I don't think I would be where I am today.

Pros

I like that Restream allows me to showcase my work across all the platforms that are important to me. I can share my designs and games with the people I love around the world because Restream exists. I feel like the UI is easy to understand, intuitive and functional, and the servers are typically well maintained.

Cons

I experience occasional disconnects from the server side but this could also be a problem with the platform being connected to.

Restream.io worked as advertised 99% of time. However, for what it offered, the price was just worth the value of continuing with their service.

Pros

Easy to get up and started, offering stability to maintain livestreaming onto multiple platforms.

Cons

The cost are ridiculously higher to use in comparison to its competitors.

Highly recommended to companies that stream often. For the casual user, I didn’t find the cost justifiable.

Pros

The user interface was easy to use and navigate. Streaming and RTMP was easy to connect and the streaming quality was great. I used it with OBS and it worked great. Compared to other software, this worked the best!

Cons

For me I’m a casual user, maybe a couple times per month, so the cost wasn’t justifiable for my company. The biggest issue for me though was the chat interface, it looked cheap and way too off brand for me.

As a free service to multi streaming, I would say that Restream does the job just fine. It's not the best service out there but if like me, you don't have the budget to invest another 10$ a month for a multi streaming option, then Restream is the way to go. Also note that they have one of a kind, very rare technical service. I honestly haven't seen a chat support that helpful elsewhere. Restream might not be the best option but their technical service sure compensate for that downside!

Pros

- Allows you to stream to most known platforms at the same time, free of charge
- Great Recap/report of your latest stream through email
- Top of the chart technical support
- Relatively easy to set up through OBS and well known streaming platforms like Twitch and Mixer

Cons

- Depending on where you are, unstable internet connexion to their servers, causing drop frames and lost packages (might need a specific tool that can't be found on their website)
- Some streaming platform access might get blocked once in a while...
- No facebook Public page stream with the free version
- Chat bot can be a mess sometimes and stop working randomly. Never found out how to log out of the Restream chat application.
- Very hard to configure with Facebook public pages and Youtube gaming.
