How to stream add a Livestream

Step 1: Find the livestream on YouTube

Step 2: Create a Livestream slide in your portal

  • In the slide manager (Slides), create a new slide using the 'Live Stream' template
  • In the Use Content From dropdown, select 'YouTube Live Stream'
  • In the YouTube Video ID field, paste the YouTube Video ID (from step 1)

Step 3: Setup a schedule to auto publish your slide

  • Before adding the slide to a playlist, update the following attributes:
    • Duration (required): Set to 7200 which is a 2 hour window.
    • Advanced Schedule: Set the start date to the time that you want to start publishing the slide, ensuring that the YouTube livestream is live at the time selected.
      e.g.

Step 4: Update/check your 'playlists' and screen 'on/off timers'

To make your sure your slide goes live at the scheduled time, remember to add it to one or more playlists ahead of time.
