Events

For most users of MyCujoo Live Services you will usually need to create an event in order to broadcast your stream to your audience, using the MCLS provided web and SDK video players. Events contain all the information related to a specific event you want to stream, for example, the event name, location, date and time.

Events, like most functionality in MCLS are best used together with other MCLS features to bring the best possible experience to end users but can also be used independently. Among the things that Events enable when attached to a stream:

  • Broadcasting a livestream or uploaded video via the MLS provided players

  • Together with the annotations feature, the displaying of overlays on the video.

  • Attaching additional event specific meta data to a stream

If you require additional information for an event, head over to the “Event types” section to add more information around your event. Information you add to your events can also be used in annotations.


Examples/Use cases


How to use it

Go to the events page in the MCLS console and click the "Create event" button.


Complete all the necessary form fields to create your event.

If you require additional information to be stored on MCLS for each event, you need to set up an event type before creating your event. If you've already created one, select it in the "Event type" select option and complete the additional fields.

Our recommendation is to enable the "Create a stream for this event" flag to take full advantage of other MCLS features.


Once you've created your event with its related stream, you can use the provided stream key and stream endpoint to start your stream.

Copy and paste the embed code onto the page where you would like the live stream to appear, and visit the stream manager for the specific event to start your live stream.


Your viewers will only see your live stream once you've published it using our stream manager. Up to that point, they will see our pre-event card, containing your event tile, date and location.
