    Frequently Asked Questions

    Looking for more info? Here are some things we're commonly asked

    Do the viewers need any apps / downloads to watch?

    No, the viewers only need to open the link you are sending to them. No apps or downloads needed. The viewers can open the link in any browser. The private links are not appearing in Google Search results. Please note that the people who you're sharing the link with can share it with someone else.

    Do I get a copy of the video after the event?

    Yes! The video will be recorded on our servers and you will be able to download it after the event.

    Can I start streaming before the event start time?

    You can begin streaming one hour before the event start time. We usually recommend to start the stream 10-15 minutes before the event, to give everyone a chance to join in. Once you start streaming your special event, the guests that subscribed for reminders will receive an email notification and will be able to watch the event at the private link.

    Can someone else do the streaming of the event?

    Yes! You can send the link to download the app and your login information to someone else and they can stream the event for you.

    How long can I stream for?

    From the event start time, streaming is available for 24 hours. You can stop the stream and start again as many times as you'd like. Your guests will receive a notification that you're live again! So for wedding you can stream the ceremony, then stop and stream the speeches and the first dance, or other parts of reception.

    How do reminders work?

    When your viewers visit your live stream link they get an option to "Get Reminders". They can then leave their email address to get notified when you go LIVE. Automatic reminders will also be sent out by our system 1 day, 1 hour and 15 minutes before your event to everyone who signs up for reminders.

    Can I stream from a different device?

    EventLive app is designed to be used on Android or Apple devices. If you want to use a different gear (DSLR, Laptop, Webcam, etc.), we will provide RTMP link for your event. Make sure to download the app, create your event (or Free Test stream event first) and login into our Broadcaster module.

    How to Setup Live Streaming with a Tripod

    If you have a photographer or videographer, simply ask them to assist you with your tripod. They will know a good place to put it. You can also designate a family member or a friend to place it for you. If you're all by yourself, just set up before the ceremony and turn the streaming on!

    Any streaming tips?

    Charge your phone and make sure you are connected to the network that you would like to use for streaming. Make sure your phone's camera is clean.

    Is there a guestbook?

    Yes, your guests can leave comments and wishes in the guestbook section of the streaming page.  You can check your streaming web link to see comments from your guests!

    Some of our App Store Reviews

    "Our wedding plans were changed due to Coronavirus. We were looking for a simple way to live stream for the guests that couldn’t attend. We wanted something that the person watching did not have to create an account. Eventlive worked perfectly. We created the stream and sent out the link for the guests. Everyone said it worked great! We also wanted to record at the same time. It saved the HD video directly to my photo gallery."

    "Picture quality from the live feed is incredible; the ability to stop and start streams over the course of an event assures your audience can virtually attend the entire event even if held across different locations (church, reception location). Ease of use (create event, go live and press start and you’re off), and the ability to share links to both the live feed and to the replay assure you are able to distribute your event to anyone you wish for viewing at their convenience- love or after the fact. Ability to download stream from the event page assures you have a recording of your event for posterity. Very responsive and attentive customer service if you have questions. We had one chance to get this right and this app came through."


    "We used Event Live to capture our COVID-19 intimate wedding for our guests who couldn’t attend and let me just says, we were blown away! The quality of the video was absolutely amazing and I try to recommend it to any couples looking to live-stream their wedding or event. We had over 350+ viewers tune in live during our ceremony and everyone loved it! They even said they had a better seat watching from their phone or TVs! Thank you so much Event Live for making our wedding a dream come true for our guests! ❤️  "
