How Do I Watch an Event?

Watching an event on Livestream can take place in any of the following ways:

Desktop Browser

Livestream Event pages work on most major browsers on Windows and macOS. We recommend using Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari when viewing Livestream from your computer.  It’s best to update your browser whenever possible.

 

If you are having trouble viewing a live event on Livestream, it's possible the producer is sending the stream at a bitrate higher than your connection can handle. Check your download speed at http://www.speedtest.net/. We also recommend clearing your browser’s cache, and ensuring Flash and Java plug-ins are up to date.

Mobile Browser

Live video streamed to Livestream is automatically accessible on iOS and Android mobile devices.

 

Open the browser on your mobile device. You can either type in livestream.com and use the search tool to find an event you are looking for or type in the full URL of the event you are looking for if you know it.

 

When you arrive to the event page click the play button on the player in the browser to open the live player. The same applies for any event whose live player is embedded on a different website.

Livestream mobile app

Any public event on Livestream can be viewed via the Livestream mobile app. This is available as a free download for both iOS devices in the App Store and Android devices in Google Play.

 

You will need to log in to a Livestream account. If you don’t have an account you can create one for free directly from the app. Enter your name, email address, and create a password. You will be able to access your account immediately.

 

Once you are logged in, you can follow accounts, search for accounts and events, and produce your own live events.
