Live videos are videos shared in real-time in the news feed.
To be used, the Live Video must have been activated by an administrator.
The webinar can be viewed:
instantly with the live video,
in replay once the live is over.
Starting a Live Video
To share a live video, select Start a live video from the news feed.
A new window opens with the camera activated.
To start your live video, it is essential to enter a title and a recipient. You can also add a description for more information on the topic(s) discussed during this video conference.
Then, select Go live to begin the webinar.
Once the live is launched, you can see the duration of your live video and how many users are watching the video.
The live videos can be viewed by up to 500 users simultaneously. If you'd like to organize a webinar with a larger audience, please contact us.
Group members can post comments on the thread and you can reply to them via the comment area on the right side of the live window.
To end the webinar, click on the button at the bottom of the page below the video.
Who can share a live video?
All users of the platform can share a live video if it has been activated from the Administration by an administrator and if they've been authorised to publish by a group administrator.
Once the live is over, a replay is automatically generated to allow users to be aware of the information delivered.
This replay of the live video appears in the news feed of the group in which it was published.
A publication is different from a live video: on live videos a camera icon is associated to the posts shared.
