Hello,

The Homestead builders do not have a live steam option built in but it can be accomplished with a third party live stream company. You can regenerate a HTML to embed to the site to cast from the company you will be live streaming from.

Hello.  Would Facebook or Youtube be viable options for casting to my homestead sites?  Could I cast a stream to two sites simultaneously?

Hello,

Other users have confirmed they were able to successfully use Facebook for live video streaming. As long as you add the HTML code to both websites there should not be an issue with streaming to multiple sites.

How does one add the HTML code to both websites? I copied the HTML code from Face Book Live then added the HTML code to my Homestead website page but the video is not showing in Homestead. What am I doing wrong?

I now get an error message that states that the Video is Unavailable, no longer exists, or you don't have permission to view it. How do I fix this?
