Requirements & Settings
Access to live video broadcasting is only enabled if LinkedIn approves a profile or company page. You can check how you can become a LinkedIn Live Broadcaster here.
The scheduled time of your live event is displayed in your local time zone.
The date, time, thumbnail, title, and description cannot be updated or changed after you create the event.
You can go live to your event from 15 minutes before to two hours after your scheduled start time. If you don’t go live within this time period, the post will show that your stream is canceled.
LinkedIn has a limit of 10 events per day.
Auto captions work for English audio content only. Currently, LinkedIn's captions do not detect or translate to other languages.
Captions can be removed on the LinkedIn platform but not added on the LinkedIn platform if not enabled upon creation.
If you want to delete an event you created, please read more from LinkedIn here.
LinkedIn will not allow the stream to connect to its platform if your stream exceeds any of these requirements, especially the FPS.
