Frequently Asked Questions
What if I have a combination of live and recorded video in 1 session?
In this case, the direct upload feature cannot be used as it only allows you to have 1 pre-recorded video for your session. If the session is already in the past, you can upload another video, and attendees can watch all the videos in that session.
The best way to share the pre-recorded video if there is also a live component is by clicking the share option from the studio and selecting "Share a Video" and then selecting the video file from your device. Click here to learn more on how to share a video.
How many videos can I upload?
You can only upload one video while setting it up. When the session ends, you'll have an option to add more videos.
Can I change the video I already uploaded?
When the session starts, can I start the video at the same time too?
If I want to start the video to start after the session begins, can I do that?
At what part of the video will the attendee see if they enter late?
If they enter 15 minutes late, they'll see the video playing at the same timestamp they joined.
Can a direct upload be paused or stopped while the session is ongoing?
No, the reason is we are giving your audience a Simulive look and feel.
What if the video is shorter than the session?
If the video is shorter than the session, once it ends, that's the time you can replay, pause, or stop the video.
What if the video is longer than the session?
The video will continue to play even after the session schedule has ended.
