Adding the video to your website #
Step 1: Get the video feed from your streaming service #
Copy the embed code from your streaming service.
Step 2: Embed the video feed to your website #
Log in to your website builder back office.
From the Sitemap, create a new Basic Content Page, or select an existing page, that will be where you place the video feed.
In the editor, select the “Insert/edit media” button.
In the panel that appears, switch to the Embed tab and paste the code that you copied from Step 1. Click “Ok”.
Complete the other settings that are needed for your page to appear (ie. page banner, other content on the page, etc.)
Once ready, set the page status to “Published” and select “Save Page”.
The page should now be live and your live stream video should now appear on the page.
If you save the video after the live stream has ended, the video will remain on your website.
