The LiveStream Object

Access posted Livestream links - great for live events and meetings - right from inside your oVice space! Livestreams are always Static Objects, that have been placed in the space by an Admin or allowed Member. 

 

Interacting With a LiveStream Static Object 

  1. Get in range - you'll want to put your Avatar within the proximity range of the Object. Once in range, a shared window will appear. 
  2. Click to connect - click the blue JOIN button on the top right of the window. You should see a line connecting your Avatar to the Object.

A LiveStream shared window behaves like other Object Windows in the space: it may be minimized or maximized, resized (grab and drag any corner), and moved around the screen (click and drag). This is helpful especially when there are several windows open at once. Organize them along the side of the space, or wherever is most convenient.
