How Do I Embed a Vimeo Livestream in My Mighty Network?

Did you know? You can also Go Live in your own Mighty Network. Click here to learn more.

As a Network Host on any Paid Plan, you can go live in any Space where you’re also a Host. Any member will be able to join your livestream, if they have access to the Space. You can have up to nine people join onscreen for a livestream (including the Host).

Livestreaming is available on the web, Android, and the iOS app. Please note that Vimeo Livestream embeds with the Chat option enabled are not optimized for the iOS and Android apps.

After you've ended your livestream, make sure to upload a thumbnail image to Vimeo that will show in the feed. Otherwise, members will see a black screen with the play button.

 

If you prefer, you can also post your Article with the Vimeo event link in your Mighty Network BEFORE clicking the Go Live button in Vimeo. Members will see your thumbnail image until your livestream starts.

 

Livestreaming during a scheduled Event

If you’re planning to livestream using Vimeo for a scheduled Event inside your Mighty Network, simply add the link for the Vimeo livestream to the Event Description when creating the Event.
