Webex Events 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.

Third-party providers

Each of these providers embeds in your Webex 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 Webex Events. 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!
