Understanding Microsoft Teams Live Streaming Capabilities

Microsoft Teams is much more than a platform for chatting and daily check-ins. It’s a powerhouse for hosting Teams live events that turn regular video calls into full-blown, interactive live streaming conferences. Think of it as your virtual event space, perfect for anything from large-scale corporate meetings to engaging training sessions and exciting product launches. 

Now, when you bring OneStream Live into the mix, you’re stepping up your game. It’s like adding a turbocharger to your Teams broadcast. OneStream Live transforms your live streams into polished, professional events that are tailored to captivate your audience, whether they’re a cozy group of ten or a bustling crowd of ten thousand. 

How to Live Stream on Microsoft Teams Using OneStream Live

Setting up a live stream on MS Teams using OneStream Live is like putting together a high-tech puzzle—both exciting and straightforward once you know how the pieces fit. Let’s break down the process so you can start streaming your events with more flair and less fuss.

Step 1: Create a Live Event in MS Teams

First up, let’s get your event scheduled in Teams:

  • Open MS Teams and navigate to your Teams calendar.
  • Click the dropdown next to “New meeting” and select “Live event.”
  • Fill in the necessary event details, including title, description, and time, and invite participants.
  • Choose how you will produce your MS Teams event. Opt for external app or device if you are using OneStream Live, as this will give you more flexibility with streaming options.
  • Decide who can join freely and assign roles like Producer or Presenter as needed.
  • Review all details and click “Schedule” to create your event.

Step 2: Connect OneStream Live with MS Teams

Now, integrate OneStream Live to enhance your streaming capabilities:

  • Log in to your OneStream Live account and open your dashboard.
  • Navigate to the “Add Social Platform” button and click it.
  • From the list of platforms, pick “Custom RTMP” to connect your MS Teams event.
  • Input the “Server URL” and “Stream Key,” which you can find under the event settings in Microsoft Teams after setting it up.

Pro tip: Microsoft Teams live events generate new RTMP details for each session. Before each live event, ensure you update your OneStream Live settings with the latest RTMP details to maintain a smooth connection.

Step 3: Go Live on MS Teams Using OneStream Live

It’s showtime! Here’s how to start broadcasting:

  • Before going live, do a final check of all your settings and equipment. Ensure your internet connection is stable.
  • When it’s time, go to OneStream Live and click “Go Live” for real-time streaming or Studio streaming. For pre-recorded streams, you can just schedule your event and choose Microsoft Team’s Custom RTMP account. OneStream will start sending your live feed directly to MS Teams.
  • Click “Join” on your MS Teams meeting.
  • You’ll see your stream’s “pre-live” status and a preview of the feed. Click on the preview at the bottom, and it will appear in the queue at the top.
  • Don’t worry, attendees won’t see the preview until you officially start the live event. When you’re ready, click “Send Live” and then “Start” to go live.
  • Once your event concludes, end the stream in OneStream Live first, then close the live event in MS Teams.

Pro-tip: Use OneStream Live’s multistreaming feature to multicast your Microsoft Teams live stream to 45+ social destinations.
