Some suggest that YouTube Live is one of the best services to live stream a funeral. Yes, it is free with a free YouTube / Google account. However, those that used YouTube live to stream a funeral say that the setup is cumbersome to say the least. Two of the most common issues are: 1) in order to use YouTube Live to stream a funeral your account has to be verified. It’s not difficult but adds another step. 2) sharing a long user-unfriendly URL is not practical, especially when advertised via a print. Funeral directors can get a vanity URL (short, specific and branded address) setup for their channels but the channels need to have over 100 subscribers.
Just as YouTube Live, Facebook Live is one of the most common options to live stream a funeral. Facebook Live is also a free option. However, the biggest issue we hear is that ALL funeral live streaming guests MUST have a Facebook account in order to watch a live streamed funeral service. This presents an issue for many families, especially now that people are abandoning Facebook due to privacy concerns.
Watching a funeral live streaming is even easier than setting it up in the EventLive app. As a guest you will receive a link to the live streamed service. Clicking this private link will launch a browser and open a dedicated page with the service. The page will include the live streaming view along with the option to leave your comments with messages of love and support.
EventLive is a flexible live streaming platform. Integration are available for multiple cameras, microphones, devices and PA systems. All EventLive streams include a guest book integration that allows your stream viewers to leave messages of love and support. You can easily customize your live stream page with your logo, tribute video and photo of the deceased.
