This month has been intensive. We’ve been a working on a pretty big chunk that has been asked many times: the slides upload.
But we did not stop there.
If you could upload slides why not upload a video? And if you’re uploading a video why not uploading a YouTube video?
Eventually, we stopped brainstorming and started building. It’s now fresh out of the oven. Enjoy.
Slides and Media Upload
Why is it important? Because sometimes screen-sharing your Powerpoint presentation or your Keynote won’t just cut it.
Either because you don’t have an external monitor or because it’s too complicated.
This is why we enabled you to upload slides (in PDF) and sync those between attendees:
Uploading a video:
Instead of having slides, you can enrich your webinar with video content like pre-recorded demo or customer interviews:
Or it can be a YouTube video and even cooler: a YouTube Live video:
You can now create webinars to comment live events like an Apple Keynote or a pitch session like the ones from 500 Startups.
Zapier Update: We're Going Global!
Our Zapier integration just went global! 🎉 Which means that from now on you don't have to register to the beta anymore. It's available in the Zapier catalogue.
Also, we now have Zap templates. Creating zaps for your apps just got easier:
Private Registration Forms for Private & Payings Webinars
Are running paying webinars? Because this is going to matters to you. From now on, you can disable the registration form on your landing page. Which means that only people that have paid will be able to register.
To register them you must use our Zapier integration. There are several ways to achieve this with Zapier:
- You can link your Stripe to Livestorm
- You can link a Typeform (with a payment form inside) to Livestorm
This workflow is also valid if you wish to host private webinars (registrations not open to the public).
Languages Update: We Now Speak German and Spanish
Many of you asked for it, not everybody is comfortable with English and we believe that is better when your software feels like home.
So we added German and Spanish to Livestorm. It will impact the webinar room, the landing page, and the emails.
Happy streaming and see you in two weeks ;)
