About the Live Stream Block

The Live Stream block is used to display video from popular streaming services such as Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook, etc or our own native streaming service called GEVME Live. Even though it's called the Live Stream block, it can be used to display both live videos and pre-recorded videos.


Creating a Live Stream Block

To create a Live Stream block, in the Venue Editor, click on "Add Blocks" button in the settings panel on the left, then choose "Live Stream" under the Video category.



Block Settings

The main setting of the Live Stream block is the Streaming Service. From the Streaming Service dropdown, choose the service you want to integrate with.


Below is a description of each service, their settings and how to integrate with each one of them.
