How to Embed a Live Stream on your Website

Embedding your live streams directly to your website allows you to attract more visitors to it.

The process is very simple, but depending on the website platform you use, you might need a different set of instructions. I’ll help you with that today.

EventLive allows you to simply copy and paste a code, which you can customize to include features such as Guestbook or Chat. If you wanted to include only the video portion of your broadcast, it can also be done with a couple of clicks.

What are the benefits of embedding live streams on your website?

  • Visitors will be able to watch your events without ever leaving your page. You can control what they see, and how they see it.
  • Your live streams can be a part of the “portfolio” you show to your clients.
  • You can create content surrounding the live stream itself, to improve your SEO.

So… better Google Rankings, updated portfolio, using your own website, and controlling the entire look and feel of your business. Sounds like a win-win to me.

Where is my embed code?

The first thing you need to do is access the EventLive broadcaster on any computer.

Now, let’s see the step by step:

  • Open the event you want to embed
  • On the top-right corner, press “Event Settings
  • Now on the navigation bar, press “Embed

You will see a screen like this:



You can customize the embed by choosing if you want to show all of EventLive’s features, such as Guestbook and Chat, or if you just want to display the Video.

You can also deactivate Autoplay, which I recommend doing if you’re embedding more than one live stream per page.

After customizing it, copy the entire code that starts with “<iframe…”. There is a simple “Copy” button on the right side that will do the job for you.

How do I embed a live stream on my website?

Every website is different, so I’ll list a few of the most common options. The most important thing you need to know is that this is HTML code, and every website builder has a different way of adding code to it. You can usually find a “Code” block or “HTML” version of your website.

Depending on the Website builder you’re using, the HTML code block can be found in a few different locations.

Conclusion

Embedding a live stream into your website is optional. As EventLive uses your own branding on the event page, embedding a live stream is an alternative way to show your previous events to prospects or future customers. It also allows you to create a custom page for your video using content related to the event.

It takes just a few minutes to get it done, and the more you share your live streaming work on your website, the more clients you're going to book.
