You have multiple options to share your events using the MCLS platform. One of them is using our web embed code. An embed code is a piece of code that you can copy from the event details page or from stream manager, and paste on your webpage to display the video player.
At the core of MyCujoo Live Services is a highly scalable and reliable streaming solution with extensive customisation tools that enables you to create the most powerful, authentic, and engaging live video experiences for your audience.
This streaming platform allows for the processing of incoming live video content through RTMP (or uploads) and the streaming to a video player on the internet via the most widely used video streaming standard, HLS.
Events take all the technical features of streaming and combine it with event-related information, for example:
Location (City and venue name)
Date & start time
Poster and thumbnail
Event poster The event poster is displayed in the embed player before the stream and is replaced with the live stream when a user presses play button.
For the best result, we recommend using a poster with an aspect ratio of 16:9. Note, the posters are not optimised for size or quality by MuCujoo Live Services and are displayed in the format and size provided.
Once embedded, please preview your poster on desktop and mobile devices to ensure the desired result is achieved.
Event thumbnail The event thumbnail URL is an image resource that can be accessed via the MyCujoo Live Services API, This image is not used in the embedded video experience, instead, it is meant for developer integration.
Note, thumbnails are not optimised for size or quality by Mycujoo Live Services and are displayed through the API in the format and size provided.
In addition to this basic information, you can configure events to include additional, richer data. In sports events, for example, this might include:
Once you've created your events, display the video player on your site using our embed codes and SDKs, or use our RTMP endpoints to access the video streams outside of the MCLS players.

Event types allow you to define additional fields that can be filled in when creating events. For example, team logos for sports events or artist names for music festivals. The anatomy of an event type is simple. Groups and fields. A group is exactly that. It’s a group containing fields. A field is a piece of information you want to save in your event. Each field have a type, name, placeholder and a default value. You can also specify whether a field must be filled in when creating events. How are event types used? Create an event and select the desired event type to expose the additional fields to be captured.
