If you want to stream to TikTok from a webcam, professional camera, or broadcast a pre-recorded video as if it is live, you can use RTMP and LiveReacting.

Interactive elements like games, polls and displaying comments are not supported while streaming via RTMP

Why streaming to TikTok with RTMP?

  • You can stream early recorded video to TikTok, so it's displayed as live.
  • You can use other devices than your mobile camera for streaming.
  • Even though TikTok is very interactive platform, you can make your streams even more engaging and fun by adding countdowns, overlays or your branding.
