Socio seamlessly integrates with many leading live streaming platforms. Attendees can join directly from the Agenda or click a Live Stream feature to instantly launch the live stream on mobile devices or computers. That means people can engage with your streams from wherever they are and switch between their preferred devices at-will.

Live Streaming platforms

The Live Stream and Agenda features integrate with many leading streaming and meeting platforms. Live streaming in Socio is most seamless and simple with one of our own streaming solutions:

  • Socio Streaming by Restream - This is your one-stop-shop for producing professional quality live streams that feed seamlessly into your Socio event.

  • Socio RTMP Player - Use this option to stream a video feed from any source that supports RTMPS, including most of the 3rd-party providers listed below.

  • Socio Simulive and Socio Video on Demand - Pre-record sessions, then upload the recording to the Video Center so you can stream the video with Socio Simulive or Video on Demand (VOD).

3rd-party providers

Each of these providers embeds in your Socio Event, except for Webex, Zoom, or other meeting software. That's where RTMP can help!

If you want to use a platform not listed above, don't worry! In theory, any live stream platform that provides an embed link or that can use RTMPS (such as OneStream) can stream to Socio. We highly recommend thorough testing before your event to make sure it works well.

⭐️ Keep in mind, the 'Other' option's embed code is optional. If you don't include the embed code, and users are using the Web App to view the Live Stream, the stream may open in a new tab rather than inside the Web App. Remember to always test before going live!
