Broadcast a Saved Video

  • Updated

With a Content Library subscription, you can save videos and embed them in a page or broadcast them to viewers as a scheduled event. This allows you to schedule saved videos for playback as live to viewers. 

You can set up a saved video broadcast to a web destination from the video itself or the Schedule page. Currently, you cannot manually start from a saved video.  

Plays when embedding a saved video are not reported in event analytics. However, if you schedule a saved video to broadcast to a web destination, viewership at that destination will be reported in Studio’s event analytics.
