Pros: This software is easy to use and Ive been using it for a while. There are constant improvements and updates and the features make setting up a solid, full featured stream really easy. I stream on 4 platform at once and have loads of viewers comment live. Using the amazing integrated chat stream I can monitor and reply to commenters from all four platforms, live! It also has Discord chat integration so this work perfectly well for my Patreon subscribers on Discord.

Overall, Restream has been my goto streaming service and is essential is you want to maximise the reach of your creation! I live stream my podcasts and live chats as well as streaming games and other media to my fans. I couldn't do it without Restream. Seamless integration, really easy RTMP and OBS integration and social media announcement post setup (no fiddling around retyping stuff) Cheapest and best streaming platform imho :)

Cons: In the beginning (maybe 2016?) there was a problem with the bitrate for streaming to Periscope and you had to pay extra for Facebook, which had an overly complicated Live Event setup that rarely worked without issue; and I thought that was all a bit of a jip! But with my big boy pants on and figuring out and experimenting with my streaming settings; I now have a seamless and easily initiated stream, all video works properly and the Facebook setup is now super easy and integrated and well worth the extra few bucks!

Overall: I do Live Shows and Chats with my audience and get thousands more viewers on multiple platforms than if I used just Youtube Live or Twitch or even FB Live. Its an event when I go live with Restream, something that people look forward to. In the age of IGTV (which I hope gets integrated at some stage) and IG Stories, people are going live all the time and its not the event it used to be. Being able to contact the streamer, comment and the facility I have employed which puts the fans comments on screen as part of the conversation across multiple platforms is the only way to live stream; and its really easy. I recommend it to everyone. :)

Pros: The update all title option. This feature as a creator, is one less window and step that i have to implement before every stream.

Networking: Allows me to have a presence on multiple platforms, and target the ones that enjoys my content and also opens new doors and opportunities i would gave never found on my own.

Community: New faces and new ideas! Restream shines a light on us, that allows creators to deliever feedback, suggestions of implementations, and helping anyone in the community to enjoy gaming more effectively

Cons: The update all game title option. Though the community voted and agreed to have such feature implemented... we never expected it to be for the top industry games, that most of us try to run away from...

This feature as it stands takes creators back a step. Back to repeating game entries over and over again

Suggestion: make it edit-able rather select. If the demand for games is too high.

Overall: Overall... We love restream! 3 years running and to date... Its what the gaming community needed! Thank you so much for everything.

Pros: Here are the following pro's I like about the software:

- The ability to stream to multiple platforms easily. It is a very handy feature and one I need to stream to twitch and Youtube at the same time with equal quality.

- Free use. The fact that I can do the above feature for free is a definite bonus as most other software out there that offers similar experiences lock it behind a paywall, or at least the features I need. Restream gives me what I need as the base free package.

- Ease of Use. Easy to name stream titles from the title tab, can keep track of stream quality and connection. Plus that it can give you tips to increase the quality of your stream are very helpful and informative, giving important information without putting it away in menus or behind a lot of words. Straight up front feedback.

Cons: Here are the cons I have about the software:

- Chat window doesn't work on fullscreen. The main problem I have with the chat feature is that if the game is in full screen it will not show, the only way for it to do so is to have the game on Borderless windowed Mode. This is fine for me most of the time as I have it on that anyway but some games do not allow you to change it to Borderless Window so it limits when the chat can be used. There is also the problem that you can't put a timer on messages sent by viewers so they fade away after a certain time limit to the streamer, it will always show up.

- Error in detecting keyframe intervals. A lot of the time Restream will incorrectly detect that I am streaming at less than 2 keyframe Intervals when that is incorrect. Not a major issue but one that refuses to stop.

Pros: Restream has allowed me to livestream to both my YouTube channel and my Twitch channel at the same time, which has several benefits to me:

I don't have to remember export Twitch archives to YouTube before they are automatically deleted.

If someone on Twitch is having internet connection problems, they can go to the YouTube livestream and take advantage of YT's transcoding. Twitch does have this feature, but only broadcasters of significant viewership (i.e., not mine) are able to use it.

Before Twitch created a hard bitrate limit of 6000 kbps, I would stream to Restream at 9000 kbps, which both YouTube and Twitch supported. Unfortunately, I can't do this anymore. I have some Restream Transcoder hours left over from when I helped beta test that feature, but it's not worth it for me to use.

Restream has also done a fantastic job of implementing features that are supportive to multistreamers, such as combined chats.

Cons: I don't really have any complaints. Just keep on being amazing!

Overall: I originally began using Restream back in 2016 or 2017 because I thought livestreaming to multiple platforms would greatly increase the odds of my livestream becoming what I would consider a success.

I was wrong about that, but it's not Restream's fault!

Pros: Restream was a game changing for us. We specialize in live, weather coverage. Sometimes that means unplanned, time-sensitive, storm coverage. Restream allows us to go live to all of our platforms quicker than any other platform we've ever used. Restream allows us to go live to many platforms with few clicks. With Restream, we go live to multiple platforms with less clicks than it would take to manually go live on Facebook alone. If you're not using Restream, you're doing it wrong.

Cons: The team at Restream seems to always be innovating and trying to stay up-to-date with the latest each platform has to offer. Naturally I assume they're restrained by available API access to those platforms, which isn't their fault. I wish I could do a few more things, such as giving my Facebook streams different video names and post descriptions. I also wish I could use Restream to control the crossposting opportunities seen natively on Facebook.

Overall: The Restream platform (channels, comments, monitor, etc.) has greatly consolidated two major things for us: The steps needed to go live, and the number of browser tabs needed to maintain quality of service. Hands down, I would recommend Restream.

Pros: Restream gives you the opportunity to stream on multiple platforms with ease. My favorite thing about restream is that they give you the opportunity to test other streaming platforms all at once. For example, at one point I considered to stream on Youtube and so I did with two other platforms all at once. Turns out I didn't find Youtube being the right choice for me. I'm glad that I was able to find out that a certain platform was not for me with out setting aside the other platforms I have worked on.

Cons: I don't have any complaints with restream, they have updates every so often. My only issue that I have EVER had was Restream's Chat and a couple of times I had trouble reconnecting platforms with restream and these platforms would disconnect on their own. But again with updates it was all resolved.

Overall: Honestly I have nothing but good things to say about Restream. What restream was designed to do does it so well. When first starting on the website everything is clean and easy to locate. It is beginner and user friendly, it's far from overwhelming. And again the convenience to stream on multiple platforms is a dream come true for those that want to.

Pros: Setting up 3-4 different platforms to stream to is extremely easy. Then, once its setup, it becomes a set-and-forget situation and it works flawlessly every time.

Cons: CHAT! There is a relatively crude chat program that is supposed to send chats from all platforms to each other so that all your viewers get the conversations in all chats, but it doesn't work very well and has almost zero customization. Would love to see this improved.

Overall: I've been using Restream.io ever since their earliest days. Back then, it was glitchy and could drop your streams without notice. Was a bit frustrating, but seeing how they have improved both the service and stability is refreshing to witness. Its extremely reliable and for a consistent daily streamer, that is a breath of fresh air.

Pros: Streaming to multiple platforms is already great, but the best part is compiling all the chats in one tool so I don't need to monitor several web pages at once! Then having the option for chats from one channel to be posted to the others is another great addition that makes the experience more cohesive

Cons: There's not a lot to complain about. One thing I would change is being able to post separate messages to the different social media channels since some might benefit from hashtags or @ mentions that the others might not. Additionally, the transcoding is a bit too expensive to be practical. At least for small streamers

Overall: Overall it's been excellent and I wish I had started using it sooner!

Pros: It simplifies a lot of the stressful and confusing things about streaming.

The vast amount of services it's compatible with makes you unafraid to experiment with new services outside of just twitch and facebook.

It's also one of the only services that makes streaming to facebook.gg far less of a headache. It does a better job than even facebook itself.

the pricing is affordable and reasonable and the customer support is top tier.

Cons: I wish there were more options regarding social alerts. Such as being able to schedule them and having them not trigger say if you have to stop your stream and then re start right away. But thats a very small gripe compared to the overall value you're getting.

Overall: My experience with restream has always been good and its nearing the point where I dont think I could see myself streaming not using Restream.io

Pros: The multiplatform chatbox is extremely useful especially while in the midst of a stream. Restream cares for their users and makes the streamer feel cared for, especially with all the opportunities they provide. Also, the ability to stream to multiple platforms is amazing!

Cons: You can't see the health transfer of video being streamed. I wish this was something that was available as everything else is quite great:)

Overall: They are a wonderful team who care about their users and listen to what they have to say. Restream is easy to use and makes more opportunities for streamers and video creators alike. Also, having the ability to take part in promoting for games and features is fun and encourages me to try new things. I love the capabilities of Restream while I'm streaming as well, such as their multiplatform chatbox or ability to change titles or platforms easily. I Highly recommend to use it because I do for every stream!

Pros: Basically, if you are a streamer of any sort, and you want to reach out as far as you can, Restreram.io is definitely the software for you. Easy to set up, easy to adapt and reach out to as many platforms as possible.

Cons: The chat windows are not the most intuitive, so making sure your chat is up and running with a stream site that may / may not have API is not a sure thing. Losing a stream source may not become immediately noticeable, unless you're looking into the dashboard indepth.

Overall: As a standard gaming/streamer, I will say that restream has given me the opportunity to get to the maximum audience, and the fact that they do try to make sure each source works (even when it's unsuccessful) consistently, makes them a "Must" use if you're a personal or professional streamer in the internet world.

Pros: Ease of use and convenience. It's fantastic for when you have an event and want to make sure all your bases are covered at once. It's no longer a question of, "If my team can't commit for a day and I alone stream to this platform over here, who am I leaving out over there?" You're covered. With Restream you're a one man army on all fronts.

Cons: Not much I'd consider a con. Sometimes the Restream chat across platforms is a tad temperamental. I'd say the only real dislike is the auto-fill into descriptions and titles upon start of stream that says "Restreamed with Restream.io". I understand the need to advertise a service in use, but perhaps a customization of the message or adjustment to placement if it's in a longer description, maybe even a premium to remove it altogether. Right at the top can feel a bit intrusive at times.

Overall: Extremely positive experience. Our team covers different angles to various platforms simultaneously, but sometimes, it's just not possible to have everyone on deck for an event. Restream allows for a member to opt out if necessary without shrinking our potential visibility, and frankly, that's fantastic.

Pros: I like the ease to restream to different platforms and a very good chat that integrates it all.

Cons: I really dislike that the chat often cannot keep up with the chat, the delay in the chat and the fact the web and desktop chat aren't the same. One can play gifs and show pictures but not have emotes show up while the other can show emotes from all platforms such as Frankerfacez but cannot play any gif or pictures.

This difference makes no sense to me along with the major delay and freezes with chat when many people are watching.

Pros: -Easy to use.

-Good and reliable infrastructure.

-Affordable for the most part.

-Chat bot that allows people on different platforms to communicate as if on the one.

Cons: -Some of the options / services are a bit too pricey such as the trans-coding option, more affordable options could be offered there since generally you're talking about only Twitch which has issues on slow connections with 1080p as oppose to most other mainstream options.

-Changing payment method for some service options require you to cancel the main account first which is odd.

Overall: All good, never had any problems thus far (waiting on a refund for a mistaken taken payment today, should be fine) whether it being service, information or payment stuff.

Pros: Easy to setup, able to change the game and title for most services from the dashboard. Able to connect social media accounts and send a message when you go live. Ability to stream to a large number of services.

Cons: Adds a little to the stream delay. Can only stream to multiple channels on the same service if you pay (use to be free)

Overall: I found Restream very easy to setup, there are guides if needed but you can quickly get this setup for xSplit or OBS. I'm currently using restream to send my stream to mixer, twitch, smashcast and dlive without any problems.

Pros: This software allows me to not only post my live stream to multiple services at once, but it also allows me to post social media messages to the main ones I use, to post my live links, as well as a message!

The fact that you also get a report on your stream afterwards makes it even better for technical people like myself to ensure I deliver the best possible experience to my viewers!

Cons: There is absolutely nothing I don't like about the software, it absolutely 100% fills my every need!

Overall: When I started streaming, I wanted to not be tied down to just one platform, and the fact that I was able to find restream, and being a streaming n00b, easily set it up and use it, was amazing. I have recommended Restream to MANY other users and helped them set it up. They too are extremely satisfied customers! Excellent work Restream! I am probably your number 1 fan!

Pros: I like the speed of multi streaming without putting a strain on my system.

Cons: The chat you can download often won't connect with Picarto

Overall: I have been streaming since the early days when Ustream was free as well as Livestream.com. So a long time. But I have always stagnated with growing my channel. Too many people refuse to join Picarto and beg me to stream elsewhere and with how hard it has been to get subs, it became very difficult to juggle between streaming on three different sites. Restream broke a barrier I have been craving for years! My overall experience has been very positive. It's easy, no lag, no noticeable issues and best of all no lag! I joined the discord group in case I needed help but found answers there first without having to look too hard. Since using Restream I haven't stopped recommending it. The funny thing is there's a misconception that Restream will cause a lot of lag. I make sure to add this bit of info when sharing my thoughts.

Pros: My favorite part about restream is how quickly and easily it is to get running. You can join and be streaming to all your services in literally just minutes.

Cons: Currently you cannot change the game on all your services at the same time unless it is in the "most popular" games on the services. You have to change by service, one by one.

Overall: Restream has been my go to for years, and recently there has been an uptick with new features and integrations that makes me excited for the future.

Pros: Restream is entirely universal, very simple to set up even for those that don't have great technical knowledge. Especially amazing for creators who are just starting or those wanting to provide content to numerous providers. It's very consistent, support are always on hand to help, including the discord server.

Cons: There is not much to dislike about Restream, I can see others views at times, that if you are starting to stream, the prices of services and how long they last before renewel can be difficult to manage, but in my own experience, I have not found any issues so far.

Overall: Restream has allowed me to grow as a creator and provide my content to numerous platforms and viewers, it has built my brand, my name and my persona all thanks to the services provided by Restream.

Cons: Sometimes ot freezes up and crashes without warning me. Freezing is quite annoying when watching only one window and it upsets the subs and followers saying that the chat broke. I have to stop everything O am doing to fix it before I can continue.

Pros: Restream pricing is pretty fair and you get lots of features. I like that they have lots of discounts on different occasions.

I am in the medical field and we lack lots of videos, live stream lessons and everything that a student would need digitally, once they get home or whenever they didn't have the chance to attend the lesson. So what we do is to stream our lessons, practices and experiments for them through Restream.

Cons: I am using the free version of the service and don't have any complaint about any of the features I get.

Overall: Restream is the best service for streaming to multiple destinations. I build my community on different platforms with spending less time and effort on it

Pros: This software allows content creators to reach many different viewers. It provides on centralized location to publicize what you are trying to stream and does it with ease and low latency. It also provides avenues such as social media awareness through twitter etc with posts and has options for chat.

Cons: I think restream can continue to work on their infrastructure, there are too many times to speak of during a 25 hour stream weekly occurrence that one platform fails to distribute our stream. Also with the chat functions it is extremely delayed and as a content creator makes it difficult to communicate timely with our viewers , so we have to use other means of chat services . Great idea but room for improvements

Overall: Overall positive , even through our critical analysis we are very appreciative that a service of this nature exists and it has helped grow our platform and will continue to be used.

Cons: The chat integration was a bit rough when it first launched but they have worked hard to resolve those issues.

Overall: I have used Restream for the past 2 years now and it has saved me so much time and effort. From freelance esport casting to simple VOD storage, restream has always been spot on.

Overall: When I found out a bug they solved it immediately and helped me solve the complications.

Pros: I like giving users a choice as to where they watch my content, but didn't really want to spend time and effort trying to make my own RMTP server. Thankfully Restream gives me pretty much all the options I could want, and its integrated chat program makes it easy to manage multiple chatrooms from one place. It's certainly made my life a lot easier overall.

Cons: Ping times sometimes don't make sense. Why do I get a better ping from Seattle rather than San Jose when I'm in Los Angeles. Likely not their fault, but something confusing.

Overall: I've had pretty much an excellent experience with Restream. It's near effortless, which helps someone like me who doesn't have a ton of spare time to fiddle with things.

Great package!

Pros: Having the chat imposed over my game is very handy. It keep me from looking away from my game to read the chat.

Cons: It has some quirks which make it difficult to learn and use. It frequently "forgets" the stream key which you don't know until you hit the Start Stream button. It will not function with no indication why until you realize it needs to update as sometimes there is no indication of an update. It does not include all aspects of chat. For instance, it doesn't include system messages where So-and-so has hosted the chat or a subscription.

Overall: It is a very useful product. It was exactly what I was looking for when I searched how to overlay my chat.

Pros: I like that this app can integrate multiple streaming accounts into one central location. It easily connects to other existing accounts. It let's you see chat from each channel or account. Easy to use on PC

Cons: There is some added delay to the stream, but not bad. The chat application can be slow. The connections to other accounts has to be re-connected occasionally.

Overall: My overall experience with ReStream has been positive. The user interface with the dashboard occasionally does not display correctly when going back and forth between the chat and the dashboard. There have been no major complaints or issues. Have suggested it to friends and will continue to do so.

Pros: It's easy to use. Just plug your stream keys in for each platform, direct your streaming software to Restream and you're ready to go! I also really like the ability to post going live announcements to social media!

Cons: The chat app seems to drop connection sometimes, even though it says it's connected. This is most prevalent with Mixer for some reason.

Overall: Restream allows me to reach out to a broader audience, then bring them together as one multi-platform community!

Pros: I love the ease of use! You can set up everything via the website and immediately begin to stream!

Toggling platforms on and off is simple and the user interface is easy to understand.

Cons: The pay-to-use features make things a bit restrictive for full time streamers but otherwise things work well.

Overall: I am a youtuber who streams on multiple platforms, including twitch. I find this to be the easiest program to stream simultaneously on multiple platforms.

Pros: I love that I can capture 2 audiences with one stream. I love that I am obtaining watch time and new followers on different platforms.

Cons: I am only using the FREE version so I am limited to how many platforms at once I can stream. Having more platforms avail, without doubling would be a great addition to the free. (So having YT, Twitch AND Facebook, Mixer, etc avail as well would be swell!)

Overall: So far so GREAT! Being able to hit to audiences at once has helped us push milestones for viewers and watch time on both platforms.. and for our followers who prefer one side or the other it is nice we give them the choice of where to watch.

Cons: Not being able to switch titles on periscope without restarting stream

Big loss of frames every once in a while

Not outputting at right bitrate sometimes

Overall: I love it. Before I found restream I was a very small streamer because I was stuck on one platform at a time. Now with restream I am able to stream to multiple platforms and am able to engage with all of my fans on every platform I'm on. Love this software!

Pros: Where to begin... What I most like about the software is how easy it has gotten to link all the streaming site you want to stream and begin streaming in minutes. Push notifications to people on social media that you are/ going to be live.

Cons: The least thing I like about the software is nothing, it's beyond perfect and what is needed for the streamer.

Overall: My overall experience has been a smooth sail. No hiccups or anything.

Pros: We love the ease and simplicity behind Restream's design; using the single-source stream key in an encoder like OBS, users need not have to choose to stream on just one service; they can stream on all of them. The chat app is also excellent for keeping track of viewer interactions anywhere they originate.

Cons: We do not like how certain streaming services like Facebook are gated off behind a subscription. Thankfully, Youtube and Twitch are available, along with many more. Additionally, the viewercount sometimes gets stuck in the chat app when using more than two services.

Overall: All in all, we couldn't stream like we do without Restream. It has become an integral part of our streaming schedule and our viewers love the flexibility they have when it comes to watching on their platform of choice!

Pros: First time using it I found it very easy to set up. Simple not simplistic to use for someone who's a first time user. Allows you to stream line your socials to post at the same time which is really handy for streamers like myself.

Cons: The only real downs side I find is it doesn't allow you to upload images along with social going live posts, which would be a real benefit if it did.

Overall: I use restream to organise my going live posts and redirect my streams to other platforms choose I need to at the click of a button. I think I would be a lot more stressed if I didn't have restream to help me out.

Pros: Once set up, there's nothing else you need to do. Every one of our streams go to both video platforms without fail. The chat app will bring in the chat from multiple streams into one window which is very convenient. The chat is also highlighted with which platform the comment came from.

Cons: This is not a huge problem, the chat app sometimes freezes. If chat seems to have stopped, a manual refresh gets it running again.

Overall: Using Restream.io allows us to reach more viewers. Not everyone can be on Twitch or on YouTube. This allows us to reach our viewers where they are and not have to force them to a single platform.

Cons: I did not like the fact that facebook was a paid only platform for restream.

Pros: It was really easy to get this setup. This was probably the easiest implementation of software for my stream I've ever used.

Cons: The chat overlay and updates can slow the chat for other channels a little bit. But not too bad.

Overall: I wanted to get more views on my Twitch channel and this really helped me promote it and gain an additionally 6 views per stream. Not a lot, but I noticed the numbers grow.

Pros: The fact that Restream will stream out to all of these different services at once is really amazing. I don't have to make my audience decide on where to watch because they can use the service they feel more comfortable with.

Cons: The features I use are very sparing compared to someone who probably pays for the service. However, if I had to choose a con for something it's that the chat has a longer delay than the chat that is inside SLOBS. While the majority of the time it's not an issue, there are times where it has stopped updating or other times where it'll take up to 60 seconds for the message to appear compared to SLOBS.

Overall: I really like Restream and I would recommend it to anyone looking to stream to multiple services.

Pros: The Windows chat client paired with the RTMP streaming app of your choice makes for a super easy mini live production studio.

I've used it with Streamlabs/OBS (Windows and Android), Livestream Mevo Camera and Ubiquiti Networks FrontRow camera. They have all been flawless.

Cons: Older versions of the chat app seemed to disconnect over very LONG streams (24hrs+), but this seems to have been improved recently.

Overall: I think this is a great way to "shotgun" out your stream to find out which platform better works for your content.

Pros: Restream makes streaming to multiple platforms simple. It is overall, very easy to use and it is dependable. I seldom have issues with it, and when I do, customer service is prompt and helpful.

Cons: It is still not quite as compatible with Facebook as I would like and having to post the new keys every stream is a bit irritating. I know they are still developing this though, and I'm sure it will continue to get better and better.

Overall: Overall very positive and I will and have recommended it to other streamers.

Pros: It does what it's supposed to do, taking one stream and sending to multiple sites channels (YouTube, Twitch, Mixer, Periscope, Facebook). I use it everytime i stream from my PC and also when i stream public events for my clients. They also offer a combined chat program that works great for free. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles but 90% of what you'd want for a streamer.

Cons: I can't complain about a program that's free. The only thing i don't like is that i need to pay the subscription to stream to a Facebook account.

Overall: It helps to promote myself and my business, and helps as a free tool for my startup business as a streaming service for those who can't stream by themselves.
