Step 1 - YellowDuck
Download and run YellowDuck
from your desktop computer, and then sign into your Instagram account.
This will create a RTMP streamkey and stream URL for your Instagram LIVE account.
Note: Once you login, you’ll immediately start going live from Instagram under your account. No video will be being streamed, but your followers will get a notification so make sure to move quickly.
Step 2 - Make sure your video is right
One major difference of Instagram LIVE vs most streaming platforms, is that your video needs to be vertical.
You can either film it vertically, or rotate your video 90 degrees.
If your video is horizontal, it will automatically zoom-in on your video and crop the edges.
You want to make sure your video is 1080x1920, instead of the traditional 1920x1080.
Step 3 - LIVEpigeon
Upload your pre-recorded video into your incubator
After it's uploaded, click on the "..." on your video, and click "go live now."
Copy and paste the stream key and stream URL from the YellowDuck app into LIVEpigeon. Because Instagram is owned by Facebook, click "Facebook" in LIVEpigeon.
Click "Go LIVE" in LIVEpigeon to begin your LIVEstream!
You're done! Kick back and relax. Happy live streaming!
