You can stream a pre-recorded video from software like OBS but there isn’t a way to upload a video to our live stream service. If you do stream a pre-recorded video, we would highly encourage you to be active in the live chat and introduce the video personally to give fans some of the live experience. We would also recommend that you be upfront with fans in the event description and let them know it has been pre-recorded so there is no confusion.
Hey there! We’re experiencing a very high volume of emails from our COVID-19 fundraisers and as a result, our response times are slow. We put together a list of common questions to help you help yourself in the meantime - power!
