Adding a new video or live stream

Single Video

The app supports having individual videos inside the app. 

Here's how to create a new single video item along with content

  1. From the add media source list select 'single video'

  3. Let's go over the properties:
    • The title is the title that your page will have in the app
    • The URL is the URL of the video
    • The description is the description shown below the video in the app. Notice that HTML markup is allowed, which means you can create headers, content, and links to webpages.
    • The Share URL is the URL that will be shared when the share button is clicked.
      In some cases, you might want to share a different URL than the video itself, for example, a sermon. You might not want to share the youtube video, but rather the link to your website that contains more sermons or some other resources.
    • The placeholder image only works for custom videos. Facebook, YouTube, and Vimeo all generate their own images, while custom videos do not.
  4. Fill out all the properties and add the video to a button or list and it will open the video page.

Live Stream

Adding a live stream is almost the same as adding a video, except for that the URL of the live stream can be different for iOS or Android. In order to use the Live Stream Media Source, you will need an .m3u8 link from your live streaming provider to paste in as your Stream URL for iOS and Android.

Since the live stream now opens a new page instead of directly into your app, you can now set a placeholder image for that as well. On iOS, the live stream will play inline inside the app, while on Android the live stream will start fullscreen.

Note: If you don't have an .m3u8 link, you can still add your live stream to your app! Simply set the Click Action of your button to Display a web page, and then paste in the URL web link to your live stream.
