The VidiU product line is intended as a consumer-level device with limited functionality compared to Teradek's professional line of encoders.
The VidiU product line only supports the RTMP and Live:Air streaming protocols, as described in this article.
Since the VidiU series does not support the RTSP/RTP streaming protocol, it is not intended to be a compatible source for third party software including, but not limited to, the following:
- Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) (Mac, Windows or Linux)
- Telestream Wirecast Pro (Mac or Windows)
- Telestream Wirecast Play for YouTube Live (Mac or Windows)
- Ustream Producer Pro (Mac or Windows)
- VidBlaster (Windows only)
- VLC Media Player (Mac, Windows, or Linux)
- vMix Live Production Softwware (Windows only)
- XSplit Broadcaster (Windows only)
The VidiU is not compatible with third party hardware including, but not limited to, the following:
- Livestream Studio
- NewTek TriCaster
- vMix Go
Teradek's professional line of encoders -- the Cube family or higher -- support the RTP/RTSP and MPEG Transport Stream protocols and are compatible with many of these products listed above.
