To run an event in Preneur Academy, you need to connect a video feed from another source.

To connect a video feed, all you need to do is copy and paste the stream url or embed code of your live event into the Preneur Academy event creation process. Preneur Academy will automatically fit it to the Preneur Academy iframe. Check our list of streaming players to find instructions on how to find your stream url for each platform.

Frequently asked questions

Can I connect uploaded/pre-recorded videos?

Yes! You can connect an existing/uploaded video, live feed or simulated live feed into Preneur Academy. You cannot upload a video file directly to Preneur Academy, but you can connect an existing video from a video player such as YouTube, Facebook, or Vimeo. Uploaded (pre-recorded) videos are synchronized for all members that join the event. If someone joins your event after it has already started, they will join where everyone else is.

What’s the difference between live and simulated/scheduled live?

A live broadcast is happening in real time. Simulated live broadcasts allow you to upload a pre-recorded video and schedule it to play at a specific time as if it were a live online event. Schedule your videos through your stream provider or through Facebook, YouTube or Vimeo and connect the stream url or embed code to your Preneur Academy event.

Can I have multiple streams/services running synchronously in one account?

Yes, Preneur Academy allows you to host multiple events at the same time. Each event will have their own unique link.

Setting up your live stream feed

Step 1: Create an event

Step 2: When you get to the stream step, select whether your stream is live or pre-recorded. Then, select which live stream player your link will come from.

Step 3: Copy and paste the live stream url from Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, Zoom, or your custom live stream provider.

Step 4: Enter any other event details, then publish your event.

Once the countdown timer ends, the video feed will automatically begin to play. Learn more about event timing.
