Can I Host Pre-Recorded Webinars?

With Livestorm , you can host pre-recorded webinars! All you need is our media upload feature 🙂Although it is semi-automatic and not fully evergreen. 

Here's how to make it work:

  1. Upload an MP4 file (see more here)
  2. Start the webinar manually
  3. Play the video
  4. Do a Q&A session (optional)
  5. End the webinar

🚨 Note that the video won't be present on the recording after the webinar. We can only record video streams such as webcams or screen sharing, not media (slides, video etc ). But we have a new replay in beta that'll record all your shared media (PDF and MP4) ✅ Ping us in the chat or shoot us an email at help@livestorm.co so we can activate it for your account ;)

If you're hosting a pre-recorded webinar and don't wish to activate our new beta replay, we recommend you disable the recording from your webinar settings. This way your registrants will not be able to access the replay once you end your webinar.

🚨 To ensure maximum reliability we recommend you to use optimize your MP4 file and make sure that it's not very heavy . This is to make sure that attendees with bad connection might still be able to download the stream to watch the video.
