The Live module is where you provision live streams for webcasts and other events.
The Live module is an additional annual license cost. Contact your Viostream Account Manager to add the live module on your account.
If you have access to the Live module, you will see the Live tab appear in your main dashboard.
Understanding the status of a live stream
The status of each live stream displays in the Live list:
|Provisioned||The live stream has been provisioned. You can now select the stream to view the entry points and playback URLs|
|Live||Clicking the Broadcast button makes the stream Live and the status will be updated to Live to show live streaming|
|Finished||Live streaming has ended and the status updated to Finished|
Distributing your live stream
There are a number of ways your viewers can view your live stream. In most cases, you will create an Event site to provide a 'front end' for your live stream.
You can also access a Simple and/or Custom Player embed code for the live stream, which works the same way as embedding an ordinary media asset or channel in your website.
