How to livestream to a LinkedIn Event with Restream?
Step 1: Create an Event on LinkedIn
Please follow LinkedIn instructions to create an Event.
It's important to add title and description of the event, as this is what will be visible.
Note: Event’s host (organizer) can either create an Event from an individual profile or as a LinkedIn Page (if the organizer is a Page Admin). The organizer can’t be changed once the Event has been created.
You can set the event visibility to Public or Private. To learn about the difference between Private and Public events, please check this article. We recommend to set the event to Public, if you would like to reach more audience and Private if you would like to stream to a closed group.
Once you click “Create” you’ll be redirected to the Event page. Copy the URL of the LinkedIn Event page.
Step 2: Connect LinkedIn events to Restream
Head over to Restream and choose "Edit settings" on your LinkedIn connected profile.
