Wirecast Live Streaming to Vimeo
Before you start streaming on Vimeo, you need to configure your input source in Wirecast. Once you've set up your input source in Wirecast and created a live event on Vimeo, click Output in the top navigation of Wirecast and select Output settings. In the encoding section, make sure its set to a maximum of 1080p60 (7Mbps) x264 H.264.
From the broadcast view on Vimeo, copy the RTMP URL and paste it into the Address field in Wirecast, and copy the Stream Key from the broadcast view of Vimeo and paste it into the Stream field in Wirecast.
When you are ready to start your event, click the Stream button in Wirecast. After a few moments, you should see your stream up on Vimeo. You can use the preview tool in Wirecast to switch between various input sources while your stream is live.
I'm interested in streaming to Vimeo via Wirecast (third source along w/YouTube and Facebook). Does Vimeo generate a unique RTMP URL per event or is there one that can be reused ala YouTube? If each RTMP URL is unique, that severely limits its usefulness to us since the process can't be automated.
Also, assume that when the Wirecast Vimeo integration is available, it can't be used with the Facebook provider and only the RTMP URL can be used?Reply

Facebook's restriction is "universal."
My guess is Vimeo generates a new URL for each Live Event but I haven't tested.Reply
