Channel Appearance Customization

  • The look of your channel is now completely customizable. You are now in control of every element of your Channel page. From background color or image to foreground color, to which chat option you would like to display as your default and even which tab you would like viewers to see first upon arrival at your channel.

Customized Embeddable Player

  • ...And all elements of the new embeddable player are now customizable for seamless integration. You control the color, size and even such specifics as auto-play and auto-mute. Players have been designed so that multiple players can be embedded into the same page and the embedded thumbnails are also constantly updating live in real-time when the players are inactive.

  • Don’t worry. We will continue to support the old embeddable player as long as is necessary to provide you with a completely imperceptible transformation.
  • Players are also Facebook embeddable.

New Chatting

  • Livestream has introduced a revolutionary new player-side chat companion. Discuss live videos in real time using Facebook, Twitter or the soon to be released updated Livestream chat. Some advancements of the new livestream chat include a new cleaner look, ability to embed the chat separately, login required option for chatting, IP banning, easy moderation within the chat window itself (no need to use the studio) and the ability to promote any user to chat moderator. This chat widget will also be embeddable very shortly.
