Livestream Shortcode

Include a Livestream video directly into the body content of a page or block. Livestream is a live broadcasting service to enable organizations to share experiences through live video. 

This bundle requires a subscription to the Livestream service

Note: you must enable the Livestream bundle to use this feature.

Tip: You will find a list of shortcodes by clicking "More information about text formats" at the bottom right under the WYSIWYG editor.

 Get the 'Embed' link for your Livestream video


Play Options

To make the video accessible on your site, you must un-enable the autoplay option. People using screen-readers navigate by listening, so any sound playing when the page loads will interfere immensely.

  1. Toggle the option "Autoplay on page load" to off before you copy the embed code.

 Choosing Accessible Play Options


Insert Livestream Shortcode

  1. Place your cursor in the Body content area where you want the stream to appear. 
  2. Place the livestream embed elements for your video into the shortcode: ID, Account and Event
    You will need to read the embed code and extract the ID number, account number and event number and insert these in the shortcode.
