If you are streaming to Vimeo, you can enable and moderate your event chat from Vimeo directly within the Studio interface.
In the STREAM tab, set up your stream to Vimeo. Select your event, then click Go to chat.
A new CHAT tab will open. Here you can toggle chat on and off for your event, just as you would on the Vimeo site. You can also copy the URL of your event to your clipboard to share or paste it into your browser.
If you are creating a new event from Studio, the toggle will be grayed out and set to Off by default until you start streaming; you will be able to switch it on or off as soon as you go live.
On the right side is the chat window, where you can message your viewers without needing to navigate to a browser window.
You will also see any chat messages from your viewers come in in realtime.
You can delete individual chat messages by hovering your cursor over the message and clicking the trash can icon, or block the chat participant from posting any additional messages by clicking the block icon. The viewer will not be notified that they've been blocked but no one will see any messages that they post from that point on.
If you wish to disable chat at any point during your event, toggle the Enable chat switch to the Off position. Chat will immediately be disabled on your event.
