Adding Live Video Content to a Workspace

Support Note
Enabling Live content for a team is available to Bluescape Enterprise customers only. However, this feature remains accessible on scratch workspaces only for all tiers.
If you want to upgrade and enable this feature for your team, Reply to this topic for further assistance.

Enterprise users can share a live feed from anywhere using the live content feature. This includes other browsers, video feeds, or HDMI/USB sources. Live content uploaded to the workspace can be used anytime, not just during meetings, offering more versatility to users.

Bluescape supports multi-video players, where users can stream up to four live video feeds simultaneously in one workspace.

Add live content

To add Live content to your workspace, once enabled in your team:

  1. Select :add_content: (Add content) from the workspace content toolbar.

  2. Select :live_content: (Live content).

  3. On the Add live content screen, select your input by using the Select input type dropdown:

    • USB/HDMI feed
    • Screen share

  4. Select your Audio preferences by selecting the dropdown to Include or Do not include.

  5. Select Add live content. The selected input appears in your workspace.

  6. Re-size your Live content window as required.

Adding a live content feed to your workspace enables collaborative viewing and interaction. Users can pause, play, and adjust audio and video settings. Presenters see a “Live” indicator in the Collaborators toolbar.

Note: The desktop app’s screen share input is unavailable. If you need to share your screen using live content, we recommend using Bluescape on the web.

Can Bluescape please activate this feature for our account? I believe that we are on Enterprise and I’m not seeing this option when I’m using the tool. Thanks!
