Add multi-camera streaming to your Instagram, TikTok, and other livestream services with the YoloBox Instream Vertical Live Streaming Encoder and Monitor from YoloLiv. The Instream features native integration with Instagram and TikTok, and it is designed to allow you to use external cameras when streaming, which you cannot normally do when streaming from the Instagram app on your phone as the app doesn’t allow it. However, the Instream allows you to select and switch between three external cameras while using the Instagram app.
In addition to multi-cam streaming over a variety of platforms, the Instream allows you to add graphic overlays, picture-in-picture, chroma key, and use transition effects when switching camera inputs. Stream at up to 1080p60 using the H.264 codec and record to an optional SD card. Featuring a 7″ LCD touchscreen display, two HDMI and one USB-A input, and one HDMI output for viewing your stream on a local device.

If you’re a livestreamer, vlogger, or online influencer, take a look at the recently announced YoloLiv Instream, designed to satisfy many of your needs in one compact, powerful box. The Instream inherits many great features from the previous YoloLiv YoloBox products, and its enhanced processor provides an even more powerful encoder, recorder, switcher, monitor, and streaming device, while also allowing vertical/portrait-style videos to stream to online services such as TikTok and Instagram.
The Instream maintains the same resolution support up to 1080p60 using the H.264 codec as the YoloBox Pro, but it is smaller and more portable with its 7″ LCD touchscreen, has a powerful Qualcomm SnapDragon 8-core processor, and weighs only 1.3 lb. It features two HDMI video inputs and a USB Type-A video input, letting you switch between them, and an HDMI output allows you to view your stream on a local monitor. The Instream utilizes RTMP/RTMPS/MJPEG streaming protocols. It also supports multiple network infrastructure options, including the RJ45 Ethernet port and Wi-Fi, and you can stream from anywhere using an optional 4G mobile nano-SIM card.
Record your live program easily using the built-in SD card slot on the Instream, which records in the popular mp4 file format. A mic input lets you connect a microphone to add audio to your recorded program and there is a headphone output to monitor the stream’s audio. The Instream supports SD cards up to 128GB so you can record long-form programming.
With the Instream, you not only have seamless streaming ability for your HDMI and USB video inputs, but you can also add different features to your videos using the built-in lower thirds, animated countdown templates, real-time comment overlays, and graphics such as logos, watermarks, and rolling captions. Utilizing both HDMI inputs for the picture-in-picture feature, maybe to display your face along with your Twitch gameplay, is also possible.
You can monitor and control the Instream right from its 7″ touchscreen display, giving you access to all the controls and configurations of the monitor with a simple touch. The LCD monitor features a 1280 x 800 resolution for a crisp image preview, and it runs on the versatile Android OS.
Power and Accessories
The compact Instream is powered by an internal 10,000mAh battery with up to a 2-hour battery life, making it portable for applications just about anywhere. Its USB Type-C input allows you to charge the battery quickly from a power source such as a professional battery or a power bank. Included in the package is a USB charging cable and a shoe mount for easy mounting on your camera rig.
