💻 What is Video Embedding, and How Does it Work?
Live streaming solutions such as OneStream Live provide you with a code, which is essentially a snippet of iFrame codes that pulls the video from the original source and displays it as a video on the destination website. This process is called video embedding.
Embedding live streams on the website allows you to broadcast your live events on the website without having to actually host the video.
With OneStream Live, you can create a live stream directly from the browser using OneStream Studio, go live using third-party apps with External RTMP Streaming, or broadcast a pre-recorded video via Pre-recorded Streaming on the website.
