Add Video to Services LIVE

Created on:
Updated on:

Integrate Services LIVE with any paid Ustream or Livestream streaming video channel or YouTube or Facebook Live to see live video in Services LIVE. Administrators can set up video integration on the web browser, but all users can see the video feed once it's set up.

Caution

Livestream and Ustream don't allow embedded videos at their free level. You can get an embed code, but when you click the play button in Services LIVE, you'll be directed to their site to watch.

You can see the video when you use the Lower and Lower Third views.
