Website Live Broadcast

What is Website Live Broadcast?

The EEO supports to broadcast the live classroom in a browser. Teachers need to enter the virtual classroom in the CLassIn app and start the classroom recording. Students can view the recording of the live class on a website directly without log into the ClassIn app, and interact with the teacher in text chat. The Website Live Broadcast has no limit on the number of the viewers. Students don't have to download the ClassIn app. When the live class is finished, audience can use the same page to view the lesson replay.

Usage scenarios: Broadcast the company's annual function, propagada activities or classes that need to be viewed by millions of the students at the same time. Do not require video-audio interaction between audience and the teacher.

You can embed the ClassIn's broadcast page into your app or website and provide seamless experience for your clients.

Notes: When students view the live class in the browser, they are watching the scene recorded from the teacher's perspective. They are actually not in the virtual classroom, and thus cannot use the interactive tools in the classroom and cannot video and audio interact with the teacher.

Here are two solutions to embed the ClassIn's web-live page into your system.

Solution 1. iframe:Embed the ClassIn page in your own system, app or web.

The solution is compatible with most of the system except for the Mini-Programs in the Wechat. How to obtain the url of the web broadcast and replay page

Pros: Low requirement on developement. No need to design and develop the video player yourself. The ClassIn page contains the function of live streaming and live chat area. You can control whether to allow the viewers to login to view the page. You can download the data collected by the ClassIn page in the EEO School Dashboard, or receiving those data via API.

Cons: Low extensibility. Do not have strict authentication. There are possibilities that the live broadcast gets spreaded.

Usage scenarios: Broadcast live classes to attract potential customers; live broadcast of charity activities.

Integration steps: Create courses and lessons on your system via API → Store the url of the web-live lesson into your database → Embed the ClassIn web-live page on your system via iframe → Receive viewers' data via API(ClassIn's data subscription service) → Analyze and display the data on your system

1.1 How to obtain the url of the web broadcast and replay page

Notes:The ClassIn web-live and replay page cannot be integrated with mini programs in the Wechat.

You can get the url via APIs: Create a LessonCreate Multiple LessonsEdit LessonSet Recording, Web-live and Web Replay for Lessons. The value returned in the field of 'live_url' is the url of the web-live page. When the lesson is ongoing, the url is to broadcast the live lesson; and when the lesson is finished, you can use the same url to replay the class. Sample:

The web-live page also has text chat area. When you create the lesson, you can set whether only allow the loged-in audience to watch the live class or join in the text chat. The viewer needs to fill in the mobile phone number to log in.

Q1. What is iframe and how to implement it? A1. Iframe is generally used to include other pages. For example, you can load the content of other websites or other pages of your website on our own website. Usually, you can use iframe to directly nest iframe tags on the page and specify src.
eg:<iframe src="url"></iframe>

Q2. What is pull-stream and how to use it? A2. Pull stream: The server already has the content for live streaming and the server url can be pulled to other addresses. That is, there are streaming video files in the server. These video files are read according to different network protocol types (such as RTMP, HLS, FLV), which is called pull streaming.
