Setting your Pre-recorded video as a Simulated Live Stream
This feature allows you to set a pre-recorded video to be streamed live at the time and date you have selected for your activity.
To activate this option on the above plans, simply go to Settings>Tools, and enable the option Simulated Live Streaming in the Live section of the tools.
Doing this will make your pre-recorded content act exactly the same as a live stream, users will watch as if it is a live event. They will be unable to pause, rewind or re-watch the content, unless you then set it as an on-demand video.
Simply upload your video, and then select Treat pre-recorded video as simulated live stream.
