Good Broadcasting Provider to use with RocketChat?

Hello Folks,

My inqury is about Rocketchat broadcast streaming feature that requires Broadcast ID, API, and URL.

Any suggestion of free or paid broadcast operators to use for this? I looked at Vemeo, Twitch, Youtube, but can’t find anything regarding Broadcasting…only live streaming.

The friend of mine runs a rocketchat server for his 50 students and doesn’t allow anyone to private message, video chat, nor livestream.

We setup a live stream with obs and youtube, but all students have to click the “livestream/broadcast banner” on top to show his stream.

He wants ability to just turn on his camera/mic and force all users to see and hear him.

.He wants to have his webcam “hard coded” into his rocketchat account, so he only needs to flip switch in rocketchat to bring up camera and mic for all in room (channel) to view.

If you have any suggestions for a good broadcast provider, please let me know.
