StreamShark's Live Streaming product is compatible with Telestream Wirecast (from release 7.2 onwards). Let's outline the steps required to get you streaming your live event with Wirecast and StreamShark.
High Level Instructions
Here's a brief summary of how you can use Wirecast to stream to StreamShark.
- In Wirecast, navigate to Output and then Output settings. For the Destination field, select RTMP server and click on the More... button. From the list of destinations, select StreamShark.io and click OK.
- Enter your StreamShark Encoder username and password to authenticate. Note: These credentials are available on your StreamShark Account Details page.

Step By Step Instructions
The following section contains step by step instructions for broadcasting with Wirecast. We have already created an Event in StreamShark called Wirecast Demo.
Click on the 'More...' button and select StreamShark.io from the Visible Destinations list.
The Destination field now displays StreamShark.io and the StreamShark integration is also visible.
Use your StreamShark Encoder Username and Encoder Password to Authenticate. To find your Encoder username and password, log into StreamShark and navigate to Account, and then Account Details, and copy your existing Encoder Username and Encoder Password. If you do not have an Encoder Password (e.g. this is your first time using this feature) then click the Refresh icon to generate one.
On successful authentication, the Channel field will be populated with a list of your StreamShark Events and Live Streams. Select the 'Wirecast Demo' Event and click OK.
Now you are ready to start broadcasting. Navigate to the Start/Stop Broadcasting option in the Output menu and select Start StreamShark.io: Wirecast Demo.
