Platform Specific Issues


Sets a room id for the session to join.


  • &roomid

  • &r


Rooms broadcast to all participants who has joined and chat messages

Rooms are complemented by the &director={value} function. Directors can have oversight of a room.

Rooms limit the viewing bitrate that guests of a room can request. OBS does not have these viewing limits though.

Rooms have no forced limit on the number of guests allowed, but practically 10 is about the limit I'd recommend.

&showonly=xxx and &roombitrate=0 can be used to help increase the capacity of rooms to 30 or more.

An alternative to a &room is a faux-room, which can be done with: ?push=aaa&view=bbb,ccc,ddd

There's a documentation page dedicated to rooms here.
