Encoder settings when streaming to mobile devices

In order for your Live Streams to work within Mobile Apps, and across the largest variety of devices, you may need to make the following adjustments.


Your stream must be in H.264. Also, be sure you use BASELINE of 3.0 and not MAIN as your Profile.  Use AAC for your audio format.


Encoder Settings:

– H.264 (not VP6 or x.264)

– BASELINE 3.0 (not MAIN)

– audio in *AAC at 44,100 Hz



If you are looking for free live stream encoding software, OBS is a good choice and it INCLUDES THE AAC plugin/option that will accommodate playback across most devices.
