What to consider when choosing LinkedIn live streaming software

The right software should make streaming on LinkedIn Live seamless! For an easy setup, we suggest considering software that already integrates with LinkedIn. If you want to push your content to other channels as well, look for simulcasting capabilities. LinkedIn leaves recorded live streams on your profile, but to maximize your live stream we recommend recording directly on your device in HD with local recording. Local recording ensures you don’t have to worry

about internet connection ruining resolution. We suggest choosing software with live editing features and engaging tools to captivate audiences. This can include live calls, sound effects, or background music. If you’re looking to host a webinar or anything else with multiple speakers, make sure your software can handle remote guests. Overall, your software should be easy to use and equipped with tools to make LinkedIn live streaming a whole lot smoother.

Is LinkedIn live free?

While the LinkedIn application is free, live streaming on LinkedIn requires third-party streaming software. These generally come at a fee, but they’re worth the investment if you choose software that meets all your needs. For example, suppose you’re looking to stream to platforms beyond LinkedIn, repurpose your content professionally and engage with your audience in real-time. In that case, Riverside might be the option for you.

Can you use zoom for LinkedIn live?

Yes, you can, using a custom stream key that you simply copy to your Zoom meeting live streaming settings. Zoom isn’t necessarily the best option for high-quality video, and it might be worth looking into zoom alternatives for your LinkedIn live streaming application.
