Setting up a LinkedIn Live

When you are accepted as a LinkedIn Live Broadcaster, you will receive an email with information on how to access the LinkedIn Live control center. Once there, you have the option of going live immediately or scheduling a live stream for later.

As of July 2021, If you schedule a live stream, you will be able to access the stream settings no earlier than 1 hour before the live stream.

For now, we will select “Go live now”:

You can now pick which ingest server you’ll be using based on where you are located. Choose the appropriate location from the Region popup:

Press the “Get URL” button to have LinkedIn generate RTMP Server URL and Stream Key:

In mimoLIve, add a Live Streaming Output Destination to your document:

Then, copy the “Stream URL” from LinkedIn into the “Ingest Server” field in mimoLIve and copy the Stream Key into the same field in mimoLive.
