It’s easy to go live in your Mighty Network with Vimeo! First, make sure you upgrade to the Vimeo Premium plan to use the live streaming feature.
To start, log in to your Vimeo account. Click the New Video button and click Create live event.
Give your event a title, select One Time, and set the privacy to Public or Private. Please ensure you choose One Time as Recurring livestreams are not currently supported for embedding. Click Next.
Choose a thumbnail to upload for your video. Copy the Vimeo event link then click Next.
Now you’re ready to live stream. Click the Go Live button. You are live streaming!
Now, navigate to your Mighty Network and click at the top of the feed to create an Article. Give your Article a title, then click the “+” sign to pull up the Quick Insert menu and click on the Video Link icon.
Paste in the Vimeo event link. Next, post the Article.
Choose to Notify All Members so they know you’re going live.
Here’s what your Article will look like in the feed when you’re live streaming.
Here’s what your Article will look like when members click to view it.
Here’s what your Article will look like in the feed after you've ended your live stream. 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 live stream starts.
Live Streaming during a scheduled Event
If you’re planning to live stream using Vimeo for a scheduled Event inside your Mighty Network, simply add the link for the Vimeo live stream to the Event Description when creating the Event.
The thumbnail image you uploaded to Vimeo will show in the Event until you start live streaming.
