When you organize an online event, the Watch Stream page is where you could share your online viewing URL and event instructions with your attendees. Watch Stream page will be automatically enabled for every attendee when you set your event page to "Online event".


After ordering a ticket for your event, attendees will gain access to the Watch Stream page of the event through the tickets dashboard in their account, the order confirmation email as well as the event reminder email (sent automatically ~24 hours before the start of the event). Attendees will need to log in to the account they used to order their tickets to access the Watch Stream page, those who didn't order a ticket will not be able to access the Watch Stream page of your event. 


* For events in Japan, attendees who have yet to complete conbini/ATM payment can access the Watch Stream page but not the content (both streaming URL and event instructions) you shared on the page.


You can edit the streaming URL or event instructions at any time. If you haven't created the streaming URL when you publish the event page, you can still add the URL later through the Edit event page. In that case, please let the attendees know the date and time you're planning to add the streaming URL in the event instructions. 


Your event instructions (up to 2,000 characters) will be shown under the "Additional notes from the organizer" section on the Watch Stream page. You can share any information about the event such as the event program here. The attendees will be able to access the Watch Stream page immediately after purchasing a ticket.


When you publish an online event without adding streaming URL


Regardless of the streaming method, before a streaming URL is added,  "Join event" button on the Watch Stream page will be disabled. Please add the date and time you're planning to add the streaming URL in the event instructions on the Edit event page.



Link Out 


After setting up your stream, you can add the streaming URL on the Edit event page. If you choose Link out, the "Join event" button will be enabled. When the attendees click the Join event button, they will be directed to the streaming site to attend your event. At the same time, please keep the event instructions up to date.



Embed


If you choose Embed (Vimeo/Youtube), after entering your streaming URL, your Vimeo/Youtube live stream and live chat (if available) will be embedded on the Watch Stream page.


For more information regarding the compliance of content streamed for commercial purposes, as well as other details, please refer to the Terms of Service of the streaming platform selected.
