Using ZOOM and Glisser LIVE together allows you to collectively host and stream a presentation and video call.

Zoom through Vimeo

It’s possible to stream Zoom through Vimeo for a more professional, recorded and branded set up.

First thing you’ll need to do is check that Live Custom Streaming is enabled for your Zoom account:

  1. Sign in to the Zoom web portal.
  2. Click on to Account Management > Account Settings.
  3. Under In Meeting (Advanced), click the toggle next to Allow live streaming the meetings.
  4. Click the Custom Live Streaming Service checkbox to enable it.
  5. Update the instructions within the text box so that the webinar organiser can configure the required settings when they schedule the meeting.

Once you’ve checked that this has been enabled you can begin the set up on Vimeo.

  • Login to your Vimeo account and click onto live events from the tab at the right hand side of your webpage.

 

  • Click onto “Create Live Event”.

  • Enter your event details and your Privacy settings, if you’d like your event to be private select the “Hide it from Vimeo.com” drop down option. Choose either One Time (for a single non reusable session) or Recurring (to be able to reuse the same set up e.g. for testing).

  • After clicking next, you’ll have three tabs appear allowing you to further customise your Livestream. The Onsite tab gives you some more privacy settings regarding livestream location. Note that the link at the top of the “Onsite” tab is not what you need to paste into your Glisser session.

  • The “Embed” tab is where you’ll find the code that you need to paste into Glisser. You can also customise your video stream view controls here (We’d recommend toggling Play bar, Volume control, Fullscreen button on as a minimum).

  • To embed your Stream into Glisser, click onto “Event Embed Code” to pull up the link that you’ll need.

  • You’ll only need to copy the specific part of the link between the two quotation marks (see image above). It should look something similar to: https://player.vimeo.com/video/408388120.
  • Head over to the Glisser session, choose vimeo as the Stream source within  the Live Streaming Tab and paste your link in. Now that your link is embedded into glisser you can head back over to vimeo to continue customising your settings.

  • Continuing on the “Embed” tab, scrolling down will give you the option to customise your stream using your branding. You can add colours and logos to your video and choose how to display these.

  • Scrollingdown to the bottom of the “Embed” tab gives you the option for call to actions right at the start or at the end of the stream. For example you can link to a request for demo page with a short description to appear at the end of the livestream.

  • The Destinations tab allows you to connect and stream into various other platforms should you wish to, note that this step is not mandatory (connecting to Zoom will be outlined further on down this guide).

  • Once you’ve completed customising your stream, hit the next button at the top right of the webpage. This will take you to the stream preview area. Click onto the “Connect (RTMP)” tab above your stream preview. The below displays the keys you’ll need to copy into Zoom.

You’re now at the point where you can connect your Vimeo stream to Zoom. Follow the instructions below:

  • Before going live, present your session on Glisser to allow your audience members to access your URL and engage in your session!

The Presenter

The presenter must upload their slides to the Glisser platform, and setup their ZOOM meeting id in advance of the call. The glsr.live/ id and ZOOM meeting id are the two most important elements that make up the Glisser LIVE page. During page set up, copy and paste your ZOOM meeting link into the Livestreaming URL tab under your presentation settings.

Before beginning the call, the presenter will need to begin presenting the Glisser presentation to allow audience members to get through to the page on the URL that has been set up. During the call the presenter will need to present the call on ZOOM (app or website), and present the interactive slide deck from the Glisser platform.

The Attendees

When the event is live, attendees will go to the Glisser LIVE link (it’ll look something like: glsr.live/yourcode) and will be able to access both the ZOOM call (audio and video), and the interactive presentation on Glisser. Attendees are essentially accessing the ZOOM web platform, and as such they will need to do the following to enable their audio and video to work on their browser:

  • ‘Agree and Proceed’ to cookies required by ZOOM
  • ‘Agree’ to ZOOM’s terms of service and privacy policy
  • Allow your browser to access your device’s microphone
  • Allow your browser to access your device’s webcam
