Each stream is limited to 12 hours in length, but you can host as many streams as you like.
Decide who can watch your live stream from the following options:
Anyone can see this video
Only I can see this video
Only people I follow can see this video
Only people with a password can see this video
Only people I choose can see this video
Hide this video from Vimeo
Only people with the private link
Hex Colour Code
You can customise the colour of your stream video player with a six-digit hex code.
Call to Action
You can add calls-to-action to your live stream for your audience to engage with.
A poll requires a question and up to four answers to choose from. You can also set the poll up like a quiz, with one correct answer. You can have as many polls as you’d like per stream, but only one poll may be open at a time.
Once your stream is live, you can enable Q&A from the Live Preview page. Viewers in both your on-site and embedded live chat can participate in live Q&A.
