How to use Zoom with Stellar

If you’ve got a show with individual speakers or performers broadcasting from separate locations, a Zoom stream could work for you.

Zoom has emerged as one of the most popular virtual meeting and webinar tools for both business and personal use. It’s not designed for producing top-notch live performances, but it is a useful tool for broadcasting individuals from multiple locations. If you’ve got a show where individual speakers or performers are broadcasting from separate locations, a Zoom stream could work for you.

To connect Zoom and Stellar, you’ll need to know your Zoom account type: Pro, Business, Education, or Enterprise.

The Prerequisites

Before you start, you’ll need a Zoom license with this Host version: Zoom Client version 4.0.29183.0407 or higher on PC.

Set Up Your Event

If you haven't set up your organization account on Stellar, do that first.

Once you're all set up, go to your dashboard and create an event with at least one performance and inventory, then it. When you’re done, go to the Stellar Stream Studio from the left sidebar menu.

Create Your Stream

In the Stream Studio, choose the date and time of your event’s first performance, then toggle click Start Live Stream. This may take a few minutes. Once the stream is built, keep it open in a separate tab or window so you can copy and paste the Stream URL and Stream Key when you need them.

Configure Zoom

Sign in to the Zoom web portal [] and go to Account Management > Account Settings. Find In Meeting (Advanced), and click the toggle next to Allow live streaming the meetings, then check the box next to Custom Live Streaming Service.

Add the Stream URL & Stream Key

After you've enabled the custom live streaming service in the Web portal, open the Zoom app and click More in the toolbar. Then click Live on Custom Live Streaming Service, which will open up a new browser window (see the image below).

Enter the  RTMP URL from Stellar into the Streaming URL box and the Stream Key from Stellar into the Streaming key. Paste into the Live streaming page URL box. Click Go Live! when you’re ready to start streaming on Zoom.

Stream on Stellar

Once Zoom is live, in the Stellar Stream Studio click Preview Stream to verify your Zoom stream is working properly. When you’re ready to go live on Stellar, click the red button in the top right: Start Broadcast.

You are now streaming on Stellar! If you purchase a ticket and enter the Live Stream Lobby, you can see your Zoom stream from the audience point of view.

End the Stream

When the performance is complete, click Stop Broadcast in the top right corner. Your stream is now over on Stellar. Don’t forget to go back to Zoom and click End in the bottom right corner of the screen to end that session too.
