In this article you will learn how to plan, edit, start and refine livestreams in the Morawa Video CMS.

Updated over a week ago

One of the biggest advantages of our platform is that you can plan and refine livestreams very easily and inexpensively.

To access the livestreams, select the camera icon (menu item "Live") in the content navigation on the right-hand side of the screen.

In this area you can plan and edit new livestreams and process past livestreams.

To plan a new live stream, click on the "Erstellen" (Create) button at the top right of the live experience.

You will now be redirected to a new page where you can enter all the information you need for the livestream.

  1. Titel (Title)

    Enter the desired title of your livestream in this field.

    The title of the livestream will be shown to anyone looking for content on the main page.

  2. Beschreibung (Description)
    In this field you can add a description to your stream, which will better describe to the user in the live experience exactly what kind of event it is.

  3. Thumbnail
    Here you can upload an image that will be displayed as the title image in the Dashboard or under Liveexperience for your stream. It is a preview image, so to speak. For example, if you are broadcasting an ice hockey game, you could create and upload an image with both team logos. (Image size optimal in 16:9 format - e.g. 1280x720 pixels)

  4. Logo

    Here you can upload a logo to be displayed in the livestream. For example, the logo of your team. If you have uploaded a logo, the black arrow shows you where the logo is placed in your stream. If you want to change the placement, simply click on the desired grey arrow.

  5. Tags

    In this field you can tag your livestream with different tags.

    Especially if you have a lot of livestreams, you can quickly lose track of them. Our tags allow you to catalogue/tag your livestreams in order to find the desired content more quickly.

  6. Paid-Content
    If we have already entered the data of payment providers for you (currently possible PayPal and Stripe), you can offer the stream as "paid content" here. This means that before your customer can watch the livestream, he or she must pay the amount specified there. Only then can they access the stream. Subscription models and voucher codes are also possible!

  7. Button Name und Button Link
    Here you have the option of adding an extra button to your livestream to refer the user to a desired website.

    For example, if you are broadcasting an ice hockey game, you can either place a link to your homepage or to a statistics website where the user can view detailed live statistics on the game.

  8. Startdatum und -zeit (Start date and time)
    Here you can specify when your live event should start. If you do not enter anything here, the live stream will start immediately after you have finished creating and saving the stream.

  9. Embed Code kopieren (Copy Embed Code)
    With the embed code, you can also integrate this livestream on other websites. If the stream has to be paid for, the "paywall" will also be displayed there. Simply click on the icon next to "Copy Embed Code" and embed the code at the desired location.

  10. Streamweiterleitung (Stream forwarding)
    If you want to stream the stream not only via the Morawa Video CMS, but also via platforms such as YouTube or Facebook, you can forward it to as many such channels as you like via the so-called stream forwarding.


When completed, the whole thing looks like this, for example:

Once you have filled out everything, you only have to click on the "Erstellen" (Create) button.

After successfully saving, you will be taken to the actual page of the livestream.

The first pop-up we see here is the following:

You need the so-called stream URL and the stream key for your livestreaming software (such as OBS or Larix Broadcaster).

To copy the URL or the key, simply click on the "Kopieren" (Copy) button. The information is now stored in the clipboard and you can paste it into your streaming software. Once you have transferred the URL and the key to your streaming software, click on close.

Of course, you can also copy the stream information later when you need it. To access this information again later, simply click on the key symbol in your stream administration and the pop-up will appear again.

If you have closed your stream page, you can access it again by clicking on the start date in the live overview.

If the stream has already started, you can either click directly on "LIVE", or first on Edit and then on "Go Live" at the top right of the stream data page.

On the livestream page, you can also upload a logo at any time or change the logo if you wish. If you have uploaded a logo, the black arrow shows you where the logo is placed in your stream. If you want to change the placement, simply click on the desired grey arrow.

5 minutes before the livestream becomes public or can be seen by subscribers, you can already check the livestream in the streaming administration.

To change the positioning of the logo, as described above, click on the arrow where the logo should appear. In the example, we have selected the top left.

After some time, the position of the logo changes.

You can also change the logo at any time, even during the stream.

To do so, click on the bin symbol next to the logo and upload a new one.

The new logo will then appear in the stream.
