Streaming to LinkedIn Live is quick and easy with Switcher Studio's native integration. Please keep in mind that LinkedIn Live is only available for a limited group of beta members and organizations through LinkedIn. If you do not already have access, you must request access to LinkedIn Live from the LinkedIn team.
Note: Individuals can stream to a personal LinkedIn account (i.e. People page) or an organization's LinkedIn account (i.e. Company page).
Once you've been granted access, there are three main steps to streaming to LinkedIn Live from Switcher Studio. The first step is usually a one-time process. Steps 2 and 3, which are outlined below, are required every time you go live:
- Connect your LinkedIn account to Switcher Studio
- Set up the stream
- Initiate the broadcast
If you're not ready to go live, check out our article that walks through setting up a private test stream on LinkedIn.
Setting up a LinkedIn Live stream
- Open Switcher Studio in your main switching device, and tap Use as Switcher.
- Tap the Outputs tab (this should be the default screen).
- Tap LinkedIn Live.
- Add a title and description for your stream, and select your audience.
