Simulated Live is a way for you to take an uploaded video file and set it to stream at a specific time, as if it were live. This is different from On Demand, when a viewer can click on the video and play it whenever they like. This feature is great if you'd like to provide online support and or chat features, and contribute to a feeling of community while the video is playing.

Simulated Live is included in all of our current plans, and is automatically applied to any transcoder stream. You can find it under the Simulated Live stream in the tab below your transcoder stream in the Live Monitor. If you are on a Pro plan and would like to use simulated live, please reach out to us and we'd be happy to set one up for you.
