Setting up SRT in Vmix

In case you missed it, Castr now supports SRT as a streaming input. Apart from streaming SRT from OBS Studio, vMix users can also set up the SRT protocol and send the stream to Castr.

SRT allows for high-quality video delivery on any network, even with an inconsistent connection. This new addition helps Castr’s users incorporate this protocol into their streaming flow, besides other ingest protocols like RTMP, RTSP, HLS, and MPEG-TS.

How to Setup SRT Stream from vMix to Castr

1. Make sure you have vMix downloaded. Get the latest version here.

2. Open your Multistream or All in One stream on Castr. Here you can find the URL automatically generated by Castr for your stream. Click Copy to get the URL.

6. Click the setting icon to start Setup for Output

7. In the Output Settings, check the Enable SRT

8. In the SRT URL generated by Castr, you can extract the HostnamePort, and Stream ID details to put into vMix’s setup.

Example of an SRT URL:
