Do you live stream from Facebook, YouTube, or another platform? Great! You can easily integrate your live streams into your ChurchSpring site so that your website visitors can easily view your live streams and be notified of upcoming live streams!
We integrate with any live stream platform! Login to your live streaming provider and find your live stream URL. You may need to ask your live streaming provider's Support if you're unable to find this URL.
If you use Facebook for live streaming, simply navigate to your church's Facebook Page and copy the URL. For example, https://www.facebook.com/yourhandle
YouTube Live Stream
If you use YouTube for live streaming, simply navigate to your church's YouTube Page and copy the channel URL.
Congrats! When you live stream an event, your website visitors will now be directed off site to your live stream host (Facebook, YouTube, etc.) where they can view your live stream!
Once you have completed steps above, you are ready to notify your website visitors of your live stream event! Now all you have to do is create a new event (or edit an existing one) on your website for the date and time that you will go live on your live stream platform (such as Sept. 1 at 10 am) and toggle the "Live Stream Event" option to green to turn on a series of live stream events on your website.
After you save the event you will see a countdown clock on every page once the event is less than 48 hours away. When your event is less than 24 hours away, you will also notice a new slider on your homepage which displays a countdown clock until the event begins. Then, when your live stream event begins, your home page slider will update with a button to direct people to view your live stream video!
Congrats! You are now ready to go live in your live stream platform! Don't forget, ChurchSpring integrates with any live stream platform but we are not your actual live stream provider, so be sure to go live on Facebook, YouTube, etc.
If you have a live stream provider that provides one specific embed code for all your live streaming events, you can integrate your live stream events to appear directly in your ChurchSpring site. Website visitors can then view your live stream video within your ChurchSpring site instead of being directing off site. Note: Neither Facebook nor YouTube provides one embed code to view all live stream videos by a user.
