I've been in contact with a couple of people at the GC which run They're hosting an event which they plan to livestream using They were looking to embed the stream on the Commons and found me through

I advised them to use the GC streaming infrastructure, which makes the most sense. But they'd still like to embed the livestream and archived video to their site on the Commons. GC videostreams have an iframe based embed code, which we could possibly turn into a custom plugin. I suppose it would only be useful to members of the Commons at the GC, but I imagine it shouldn't be too difficult to create the embed plugin.

Hi Michael -- we're working on embedding of completed videos (not sure whether it will work for livestreams) for this ticket --

We are in discussions with IT and currently waiting for IT to set up some configurations that will enable us to make this work. Hopefully, we will have an update soon

Thanks Matt, guess I should have looked to see if this was already in progress. Not surprised. I'll let the Fashion studies site people know about the other ticket so they can watch it as well.

Thanks for the request, Michael. It appears that the live streaming infrastructure is the same as for prerecorded videos. I'm going to mark this as a duplicate of #4340.
