Let's start by creating our Encoder Workflows on Switchboard. You can do this by clicking the "Create Encoder Workflow" in the top right, selecting the "Desktop" category, and then selecting the "Other" option. Once you've done this, select the closest Stream Server to your location and click "Finish".

Next, we'll be grabbing the information that we need from your Switchboard, where you’ll be able to find your Ingest Server to enter into Lightstream (named Stream Server in Switchboard) as well as your Stream Key.

Here’s an example of what you’ll find on Switchboard when grabbing this information:

Now we'll want to bring this information into our RTMP Destination inside of Lightstream as shown below:

That’s it! You’ve done it! Now you can go ahead and start streaming to Switchboard for it to distribute to all linked platforms. All you have to do is hit that green “GO LIVE” button on the top right of your Studio in Lightstream.
