👥 What is Private Live Streaming?

The public and private streaming are defined by the live streaming solution, where a private stream is intended for the internal purposes of the business. In contrast, a public event is for the entire public.

Getting as many viewers as possible to tune in to your broadcasts is usually a goal for most live streamers, but depending on the content you’re streaming, that’s not always the case. In private live streaming, the goal is to keep unwanted viewers out and provide access to authorized individuals only.

OneStream Live offers a Domain Restriction feature, allowing businesses and organizations to live stream their internal events without security concerns.

❓ What is Domain Restriction?

This security setting permits you to lock your embedded code to work on allowed domains only.  Domain Restriction prevents viewers from copying the embedded code to record or stream on their website.

The live stream will only be visible on the authorized web pages/domains.
