Instagram can now be streamed from your desktop: Here’s how to do it!

Instagram Stream from Desktop

Instagram unveiled a new feature today that would enable desktop-based streaming for producers. With the new Instagram Live Producer, producers will be able to live stream using tools like OBS or Streamlabs.

Creators were previously limited to using their smartphones to launch Instagram Live. But with Instagram Live Producer, live streaming on Instagram will work just like it does on Twitch and YouTube. With the new features, producers will be able to use more cameras and microphones when live streaming, as well as add custom visuals, title and end cards, and other things to the stream.

In a blog post, Instagram emphasized the recommended audio and video formats for streaming on the platform using the new Live Producer tool. Additionally, the firm has offered step-by-step directions for configuring your first live stream. For a list of the suggested system requirements, see the section below.

Video format

  • 9×16 aspect ratio (recommended but not required)
  • 720p @ 30fps (note: 30fps is recommended, but Live Producer can also support 60 fps if desired. When using 60 fps, the Live Producer preview screen will still display 30 fps. This is normal and we are currently investigating how to correct this.)
  • Resolution: 720 x 1280
  • Video bitrate range: 2,250-6,000 Kbps
  • Alternatives (supported but not recommended): 480p @ 30fps, 360p

Audio format

  • Sample rate: 44.1 kHz
  • Channel layout: Stereo
  • Bit rate: up to 256 Kbps

The settings provided above are the default for most streaming platforms, including OBS

How to: Instagram Live Producer

To enable Instagram Live Producer, go to Instagram.com and click the “Add post” button. Then, choose “Live” from the drop-down menu. Give your stream a title, choose your audience, and then click “Next” on the “Go live” screen. You’ll see your specific URL and stream key on the next page. You can now start streaming by entering the stream key in your preferred streaming application.
