    About the Live Stream Block

    The Live Stream block is used to display video from popular streaming services such as Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook, etc or our own native streaming service called GEVME Live. Even though it's called the Live Stream block, it can be used to display both live videos and pre-recorded videos.

    Creating a Live Stream Block

    To create a Live Stream block, in the Venue Editor, click on "Add Blocks" button in the settings panel on the left, then choose "Live Stream" under the Video category.
