Embedded video

You can upload both a pre-recorded video and a live stream video (from Youtube, Vimeo or Wistia) as an embedded video in Glisser.
Embedded videos will appear in the same space as any slides and polls.

To add an embedded video into your Glisser session follow these steps below:

  • Click on Add Content.
  • Select Embed Content / Video.
  • Select the Content Source of your embedded video.
  • Copy in the video URL. Please note the video must be set to public or unlisted.
  • For any virtual / hybrid events, ensure that Autoplay Video and Share to Audience Devices is turned on.
  • Click on Save.

Going live

When you are ready to present live, select your session and click on Live Control then Go Live.

To make a session on demand, you must first click on either:

  • Live Control followed by Go Live, then push through all of the slides until you hit the final Glisser slide.
  • Publish (Present To The End). This is only available for sessions within an event.

To stop content from being available you must click on End For All from within your live control screen or End Current Session from your session/event dashboard.
