How do I set up my live event with Vimeo?

To use a Vimeo live stream with your glistrr event, you need to link a Vimeo live video to the glistrr event.

Setting up the Vimeo live video

You can find instructions for creating your Vimeo live stream video on Vimeo's website, here.

When setting up your Vimeo live stream, we recommend choosing the following privacy settings:

  • Hide this event from
  • Only on sites I choose - setting the URL

You can find instructions on how to set these options on Vimeo's website, here.

Once you have your Vimeo live stream set up, find your Vimeo video embed URL - it should look like "". From this URL, you need the video ID (the "12345" part in this example).

Linking your Vimeo live video

Once you have the Vimeo live stream video ID you can set it on your glistrr event. Edit your event on glistrr, from the event page in the dashboard and set the "Vimeo video ID" in the "Advanced Details" section.

You can set the Vimeo video ID up to 15 minutes before the event starts. If you haven't set the Vimeo video ID by the day before the event, you'll get a reminder email from glistrr.
