Crowdcast is designed to be as quick and painless as possible with easy setup, a single URL, and no required downloads. You can use our Send to an External URL option after creating the event meeting within Crowdcast.

When the session goes live at the scheduled time, they will be re-directed to watch the talk in a separate Crowdcast window after clicking the 'Watch now' button on the HeySummit talk page. If you want to embed Crowdcast directly into the HeySummit window, you can find out how to do this here.

  1. Create your New Event with Crowdcast.

  2. Once your event is created in the top right corner, click Share.

  3. Copy the URL.

  4. Choose the session for which you are looking to use your webinar platform. If you want to set up a session, select Content > Talks.

  5. On the right-hand side of the session you want to connect, click the ... menu icon to display your available actions. Click on the Manage Talk link.

  6. On the next screen, you have several options for broadcasting the talk. Select Send to an External URL under the Advanced option when using your webinar platform.

  7. Enter your custom webinar platform URL in the box provided and you're all set!

When the session starts, your attendees will be redirected to register with Crowdcast using their email, Twitter, Facebook, Google, or Apple ID.

Important Things to Note:

Check the attendee flow

Since you aren't using a full integration, your attendees will not be auto-registered for your session within your video provider. They may be prompted to enter their details when joining the session.

Check-in early!

If you'd like a quick mic and camera check before the session starts, make sure you and your Speakers join before the session starts.
