You can place pre-recorded videos from YouTube, Vimeo, or Wistia on the Stage.

To do this, click on the Venue tab of the event dashboard followed by the Stage tab.

Select "Stream provider". Choose the provider of your choice, and paste the video ID from the hyperlink. Click Save.

The Stream identifier field is for the ID only, NOT the entire URL. If the entire URL is used, or the timecodes are added to the link (e.g. LXb3EKWsInQ&t=26) an error will occur.

E.g. for the YouTube URL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXb3EKWsInQ please use only LXb3EKWsInQ -- the part after the “=” symbol.

 

Important things to Note:

  • You're able to switch from a live feed to a pre-recorded video through the event dashboard but please note that this transition may require attendees refreshing their pages to view the change. Also, attendees will be required to hit 'play' for the video to begin.
  • Be sure the video on the third-party platform (YouTube, Vimeo or Wistia) is NOT set to private (or password protected) to avoid issues.
  • Adding a YouTube playlist will let attendees select which video(s) they want to watch. The playlist link must include https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list= You can find the link of the playlist by clicking the Playlist name at the bottom right corner of the YouTube window.
