Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

About Us

What is LiveSpace?

LiveSpace is a new social livestreaming platform built for creators, by creators. Our mission is to help creators get discovered and build an online community, all with easy-to-use monetization tools and a design-focused interface. We’re disrupting the livestreaming industry by giving 85% of revenue directly to creators — no more 50/50 split.

Why did you create LiveSpace?

As creators ourselves, we know where you decide to build your community is a big decision. We also realized that no existing platform truly solved the needs of up-and-coming creators. That’s why we built a livestreaming platform with creators’ needs in mind every step of the way. LiveSpace is the place we always wished existed, and that we know creators will love.

Where is LiveSpace based?

Los Angeles, California.

Where can I get LiveSpace merch?

You can visit our official store here!

Are you hiring?

Yes! Keep an eye out for open positions on our Jobs page.

Do you have a mobile app?

Not yet, but you can still use the website—and even stream!—through your mobile device.

Does LiveSpace cost anything to use?

No – LiveSpace will be free forever.

Why join LiveSpace if I already stream somewhere else?

We don’t just want you to get views; we want to help you build your community. LiveSpace is built on micro-communities, where you can find some of your most highly engaged fans. With more ways to engage than ever before, not to mention detailed analytics, discovery, and monetization tools, LiveSpace is dedicated to helping you grow your audience and build your brand– all with a revolutionary 85% revenue split so you can make a living doing what you love.

What streaming software is LiveSpace compatible with?

You can use any software you like – all you need is your LiveSpace Stream URL and Stream Key. We recommend OBS Studio.

If you don't want to use software, you can also get started streaming right from your browser with our 1-click webcam integration.

What stream URL do I enter in OBS?

The official LiveSpace stream URL is: rtmp://app.live.space/live

What browsers are compatible?

You can use any browser you like. We recommend Google Chrome for the best platform performance.

Do I need special equipment to stream on LiveSpace?

No – All you need is a laptop with a built-in webcam. But you’re welcome to connect external microphones and cameras as well.

Livestreaming

How do I start a stream?

Just click the video icon in the header, choose a video input, and press start! Begin with just your webcam, or connect your own external camera + microphone. If you want more control, switch your input to “Stream Key” to send us video from OBS software.

What URL will my stream be hosted at?

Live.space/watch/username.

How are you able to offer an 85% revenue split?

It’s no secret that hosting HD livestreams is expensive – it can cost the platform over $10 per stream. Platforms have 3 options: charge streamers for their usage (like Crowdcast), run a ton of advertising (like Twitch), or try to reduce the cost of the livestream itself. LiveSpace chose the third option, and we are proud to be one of the first major users of distributed video transcoding: a new hyper-efficient process that’s still compatible with industry-standard RTMP delivery methods. This allows our users to enjoy free livestreaming while still keeping a revolutionary 85% of all platform payments.

What’s the maximum resolution you can stream at?

For now, the maximum livestream resolution is 1080p at 30fps.

What’s the recommended bitrate for OBS?

We recommend you set your video bitrate at 3,000 and audio at 256.

Do you have in-stream alerts for viewer activity, like new followers?

Not yet, but integrations with existing livestream tools are in our roadmap! In the meantime, you can use OBS software to achieve this.

Can I record streams to watch later?

Not yet, but this is in our roadmap! In the meantime, you’re welcome to self-record your streams and post them on YouTube, which you can easily share on LiveSpace.

Can I add text or image overlays to my stream?

Not from the platform itself, but you’re welcome to use OBS software to achieve this.

Can I invite guests to co-host a stream with me?

Not yet, but this is in our roadmap! In the meantime, you can use OBS software to achieve this.

Can I share my screen during a livestream?

Not from the platform itself, but you’re welcome to use OBS software to achieve this.

Is there an age restriction to sign up on LiveSpace?

Yes – You must be at least 13 years of age to use the platform.

Will I be able to customize by subscription price?

Yes – You will be able to choose your own subscription price for your community. But you don’t have to enable subscriptions if you don’t want to; you can simply earn regular followers.

Are there any eligibility requirements to start earning revenue?

No – Anyone can start earning on LiveSpace, though we will ask users to verify their identity to enable payments for their account.

Will there be a payout threshold before I can withdraw my earnings?

No – you'll just have to have enough of a balance to cover the payout processing fee.

When will platform payments go live?

Payments will not be part of our initial beta release – we’ll wait to release payments, like tips and subscribers, until we are certain the platform is stable, bug-free, and running smoothly. All payments will be introduced in Phase 2 of our launch.
