To show a live stream, video, or pre-recorded material through Brella, you need to add the embed link in the Stream or Schedule tab.
This article will guide you on broadcasting your content in the Stream tab or the Schedule as an individual content session. Once you are familiar with the embed link, you can embed your event content to either the Schedule or Streams tab.

❗Note: For your content to show optimally within Brella, it is important to add an embed link to the Admin Panel. Do not use a direct share link or URL, such as the one shown in your browser's address bar.
Embedding a live stream or pre-recorded video to the Streams tab
Once you have the embed link copied to your clipboard from your Stream provider, you can embed the content.
- Go to the Admin Panel (manager.brella.io).
- Go to the Stream tab and add a new tab using the Create new button.
- Add a title that will be useful to your attendees to recognize the content in this stream.
- Add the embed link to your stream URL.
- *Optional: enable the chat for the stream or add sidebar integrations.
After adding your embed link to the Admin Panel's - Stream page, your session will be available to the attendees under the Stream tab within Brella.
