Setting up your Live Event

YouTube

If you select YouTube, you need to create a Live Event on your YouTube channel. We use the OBS software since the Google on air hangout has been discontinued.

Once done, copy the Video ID for your live event and paste it in the YouTube Video ID field in the left-sidebar menu.

Twitch

 If you select Twitch video type, insert the Stream ID (the name of your channel).

Embed Code

If you want to use Facebook Live, Twitch, Vimeo streams or even Zoom instead of YouTube, select Embed Code.
Create a live event on your site, then, get the Embed Code.
Paste the code on the Insert Code field.
