Evmux and StramYard are web-based live-streaming platforms. Although both serve the same objective, there are differences.
This Evmux vs. StreamYard article is all you need to choose your next live-streaming platform.
What’s the difference?
Both are used for live-streaming interviews, podcasts, events, and conferences. We have a web-based studio that connects with our social media account and displays our webcam, PC, and guests.
The Studio has a preview window with a microphone, webcam, screen sharing, and guest options. Whatever is visible in the preview window is visible on the social media platform.
In Evmux, we call social media accounts “Broadcasting channels.” You must connect to one account to start the broadcast.
The same goes for StreamYard. You connect at least one account to go live.
During streaming, both support private chat and integrate comments from social media. Both also let you invite guests to the broadcast.
Evmux lets you stream on the following four platforms:
- Facebook (page, group, and profile)
- LinkedIn (page and profile)
StreamYard supports the following six platforms:
- Facebook (profile, page, and group)
- LinkedIn (profile and page)
- YouTube channel
- Hopin (premium option)
Additionally, their premium plans support custom RTMP (OBS, Wix, Vimeo, etc.) tools.
With Evmux, you can stream to two destinations at once at 1080p quality. StreamYard supports one destination for free, and full HD streaming is available on its Professional plan.
Both have essential options, including a webcam, microphone, and screen share.
Both also support playing local videos and presenting slides. StreamYard has the following additional options:
- Mirror camera
- Select a microphone and speaker
- Echo cancellation
- Stereo audio
- Automatically adjust mic volume

Evmux lets you stream up to 30 hours a month, but there is a limit of 2 hours per stream.
StreamYard supports 20 hours per month of streaming, but there are no limits on the stream length.
Lastly, Evmux supports up to 12, whereas StreamYard supports up to 6 free attendees.
When it comes to customization, Evmux is flexible. It allows you to customize dynamic and professional scenes.
- Choose a theme and color for banners, comments, and lower thirds
- Add a custom logo (paid)
- Add overlays (upload a local file or choose the form 14 built-in option)
- Insert a video clip
- Add image and video backgrounds (upload from a local file or add from the 26 templates)
Contrarily, StreamYard enables interface customization similar to Evmux’s dynamic scenes, but the free plan is limited. Here is a list of the customization options:
- Brand color and theme for banners, comments, and display names
- Custom logo (paid)
- Overlay (paid)
- Video clips
- Virtual background
Analytics is a part of the Evmux vs. StreamYard battle. Evmux shows you the total broadcast time on the dashboard.
StreamYard does not record the time, but it can boost engagement by highlighting comments from specific platforms, inviting audience members to join podcasts, offering giveaways, etc.
In Evmux, recording is a premium feature.
In comparison, StreamYard lets you record, but the free plan has some limits. You can record streaming locally without going live for 2-hours.
The premium plans of both programs support local and cloud recording.
Evmux offers six sound effects and 17 audio files, whereas StreamYard has 8. However, both support inserting local audio files.
