The Website Video Player allows you to stream directly on your website in addition to your social platforms. Reach your viewers and clients at the best place - your home page 🚀

Important: Website embed player unlocks at Premium plan with 1000 concurrent viewers and extends to Business plan with 10,000. Concurrent viewers are your website visitors who can watch the live stream at the same time.

❗️You can now choose to either use a static embed code for all streams or set up a specific embed code for a Restream Event. If you want the embed code to be tied to a specific event, you will need to get a new one set up each time!
