Streaming to Instagram

Using Cre8 you can very easily stream your productions to Instagram using Yellow Duck.

For best results when streaming to Instagram you will want to change your production to 9:16 (1080x1920). To achieve this, open your Cre8 settings and navigate to the Video tab. Change the Base and Output to 1080x1920.

Build your production to appear as you wish in a 9:15 aspect ratio.

Once ready to setup Instagram streaming, you will need to install Yellow Duck. Visit the Yellow Duck, and click Download for Windows.

Once the Yellow Duck application is installed and open, click Start Now.
