About 3rd Party Broadcasters

Broadcasters like having options. For this reason we have made it easy to use popular 3rd party broadcasters with your TikiLIVE channel or network. Maybe you’ve switched from another platform and you’re comfortable with a different broadcaster, or you like the specific features that another broadcaster offers. Whatever the case, you have options with TikiLIVE.

Note: For 3rd party broadcasters, a TikiLIVE username and password is not needed.

Important: 3rd party broadcasters may work, but they are not supported. All time to troubleshoot live streams from a 3rd party broadcaster is considered exploratory. We highly recommend you to use our supported broadcasters: HD Wave, SD Wave or HD Wave DeskShare.
