api.video uses the RTMP protocol for livestreaming, so any tool that supports that protocol can be used.

If you just want to get started as soon as possible, here's a few that you can look at.

  • OBS - this is free and open source, you can use on desktop (MacOS, Windows or Linux)

  • Streamlabs - this is a nice app for iOS

There is a demo on our home page that lets you livestream with your webcam through the browser. The code is available on Github.
