Live Streaming

How can we put live streaming on our Elexio Site?

Live Streaming refers to a live video broadcast, like the evening news. At this time, Elexio does not provide live streaming services. However, you can link to or embed a 3rd party live streaming video player on your website.

To get started, you'll need to sign up with a 3rd party live streaming provider that meets your needs. While we have no official recommendations, some of our clients have used lightcastmedia.com or 316networks.com and reported positive experiences. You can also do a Google Search for 'live streaming providers' and find ample results.

Option 1: Embed a third party live stream in an HTML block.

It's usual for third party streaming services to provide embed code for displaying videos on other sites. All you'll need to do is copy that code, add a new HTML block onto the page that you want place the video, edit the block and paste the code into it. When you save your changes / publish the page, the video should appear in the block.

Option 2: Add a link to a third party live stream on your site.

Copy the URL of the page that displays your live stream and link to it within a Rich Content Block or from a menu item on your main menu. For more information on how to link to an external website, see
