Hello, has anyone had any luck configuring the Mevo livestream camera with MS Stream for live events?
I love the portability and quality of this camera and would love to use it for Live Streaming events within MS stream. The camera does have the capability to stream via RTMP but am having difficulties pairing the two successfully. My hunch is that I will need to use Mevo's livestream software as the encoder before sending it to MS Stream. Any advice on how to successfully pair them would be greatly appreciated.

I've always used OBS, don't think the Mevo software is supported but you can try, here is manual config instructions: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/stream/live-encoder-configuration
List of supported software can be found here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/stream/live-encoder-setup
I've done OBS, and it's really just starting it up. Adding your webcam capture device. Editing your stream settings and plugging in the URL from the Stream into the URL and Clicking start stream, after some seconds you will see your feed come into the stream.
Hope this helps.

@Kim Clark Hey Kim,
I was able to get this working and would recommend it! The most difficult part for me was getting the Mevo camera to work on our secure network. If your company has complex firewalls put in place, you will need a savy network engineer to allow the video feed to have a consistent stream. Here is the article that describes the fix.
Once you can connect the Mevo with your network, open a live event is MS Stream and send the RTMP code to the mevo camera. That link should establish a good connection between the two.
I specifically remember you need to start a live event in a specific order:
MS Stream - Host Live Event and Click - Set Up Live Event - Send RTMP Code to Mevo
Mevo - Connect Camera - Enter RTMP Code - Hit Go Live
MS Stream - Click Go Live
*Expect a 30second delay from seeing it live vs on your device.

Hey @knest. I got the Mevo connected to our internal network successfully and can connect and see the capture from my phone, but where I'm stuck is setting the RMTP code. Do I need an external encoder for this, or is it a code I'm getting from Stream? Appreciate any specific instructions you have for getting this setup... we go live next Monday morning :)

@Kim Clark - Your Mevo camera setup is the encoder. So all you need to do is create the event in Stream, Teams, or Yammer, and then get the RTMP URL.
If you are just doing this directly in Stream here are the instructions: https://docs.microsoft.com/stream/live-create-event
If you want to do it from Teams you can as well, just pick "Produce with an external app or device" option: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/schedule-a-teams-live-event-7a9ce97c-e1cd-470f-acaf-e6dfc17...
Or if you want your viewers to be in Yammer you can create the event from there as well, and pick the same "Produce with an external app or device": https://support.office.com/article/Organize-a-live-event-in-Yammer-105dd7af-9caf-4a5e-8a44-56d203e96...
