What Video Options Can I Use For My Session?

Bringing your event to the virtual world doesn't have to be scary or complicated. Our Virtual Event Space allows you to incorporate different video options into your sessions. 

Within the Sessions library you can find a Video Experience option available that will provide you with the different types of experiences that you can create for your virtual sessions, including: 

  • Pre Recorded for embedded on-demand video content. 
  • EventMobi Studio for live stream video using the EventMobi platform. 
  • Live Stream for livestream video via RTMP using another platform or solution. 
  • Breakout Room for an interactive meeting room where up to 100 people can connect.
  • Video Conference for a call to action button to a conference platform or solution.

When will I need to use the Live Stream option?

Most platforms will allow you to embed your video content directly within your sessions using the video URL. Platforms such as Zoom and others that don't offer a web interface for streaming may require you to use RTMP - in this case you will need to use the Live Stream option to embed your video content within the session.

There are three necessary credentials that you will need to connect your live stream to a third party platform: a RTMP Server URL, Stream Key and Video URL. These credentials can be generated by selecting the 'Live Stream' option as the Experience Type so that you can input them into the platform you will be using to stream your session content. 

Simply select the Generate Custom URL button to access these URLs, and then click on the copy icon so that the content in the relevant field can be pasted into your live stream platform.

If a video link has been updated, will people have to refresh the app to see the new video?

It will update automatically for anyone that is not on the page already. If someone is already on the page before the video link is updated they will need to either leave and go back to the page or refresh the page to see the new video.
