How to Set Up the Website with Livestreaming
In order to run virtual events through EventsCase, you should purchase the website product (or a related service such as EventsCase Lite) since the website is practically the virtual stage of your event.
Here are the necessary steps in order to set up livestreaming within your website:
As long as you have an existing contract with EventsCase that permits you to use the website, you or your project manager can activate the product within the EVENT DASHBOARD.
For full instructions on how to build a website, please refer to the website user manual.
The distinction here is that you have to create a website page for each virtual session. To do this, go to the Pages & content tab and click on the +Add new page button.
Within this session page, you can add any of the following livestreaming modules:
- YOUTUBE 2.0
- ZOOM 2.0
- VANCAST 2.0
- SLIDO 2.0
- LIVE INTERACTION
- EVENTSCASE STREAMING (RTMP)
For a full explanation on how each of these modules work, please refer to the next article:
Once the livestreaming module is added and the session page has been completely set up, we can now extract the link of the page. Click on Live Preview and extract the link:
You will need this link later when setting up a virtual session (step 4).
Apart from creating individual session pages within the website builder, you must also build the event agenda since this is where the agenda modules and the event portal will draw data from.
After creating the sessions, proceed to the Streamings tab. You must create a "streaming" for each session that you are going to run.
The name of the streaming may be identical to the session. Within the Sessions tab, add the corresponding session. Lastly, within the Video tab, choose External link and add the session page link (from step 2).
Now that you have configured the livestreaming link per session, website visitors can now access the session pages from the agenda modules or via the event portal.
Here is how a session is played via the "Online Sessions" module:
This is how a session is played via the event portal:
Depending on the use case, you can opt to make a livestreaming module (or any website module) in EventsCase private — such that only registered attendees of the event can access the content. To do this, simply edit the website module and within Basic configuration, choose All the registered attendees within the module's visibility setting.
You may set up a default message for the public if they are not registered to the event similar to the example below:
In this specific instance, you would need to set the text module's visibility to Everyone except the registered attendees:
