How to Connect Third Party Streaming to the Virtual Portal

PheedLoop offers support for third party streaming services beyond Zoom and ClickMeeting. If you are hosting your session on an externally embeddable streaming service, PheedLoop has built in support to host that session in the Virtual Portal or Event App.  This means that your attendees can experience the event in one location instead of branching out to other platforms.

Please note that you can also upload pre-recorded videos from your desktop. To do so, please review our Uploading Pre-Recorded Videos to Sessions On Demand Content, and Simulive article.
