Check out our list of minimum requirements to use Altar Live for more information.

Do I need to already be live streaming my service or events?

Yes, Altar Live hosts pre-recorded, live or simulated live streams in an iframe on our platform. We support almost any video player such as Facebook, YouTube, Zoom, or Vimeo. Currently, we also support some live stream providers that have their own video players.

How do I connect my live stream to Altar Live?

To stream your service, all you need to do is copy and paste the video feed url of your live event in the event details. Altar Live will automatically create embed code to fit within the Altar Live iframe. Check our list of streaming players to find instructions on how to find your stream url for each platform.

What’s the difference between live and simulated 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. Different from uploading a video file that someone can play on-demand, simulated live ensures all viewers who visit your page view the same stream and at the same point no matter when they joined. You can play a simulated live event if you connect a live stream player like Facebook, YouTube or Vimeo that allows you to stream an event as simulated live.

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

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