Live Streaming on WordPress by VideoWhisper

The VideoWhisper Live Streaming software can now be easily used to add video broadcasting to WordPress sites and live video streams on blog pages.

To test a live demo of software on WordPress, just register a free account on this site and use the widget link from the right menu to start broadcasting.

If the user is not logged into WordPress a warning message is shown and the visitor can click that to get back to the main WordPress website for registration/login. We also included a plugin that provides a linking widget. You can use that or directly add a link to “http://www.your-site.com/videowhisper_streaming/” .

The widget also displays online broadcasters and their show names.

Live Broadcast

The watch screen logs in wordpress logged in users by adding a @ at end of username (so broadcaster can see & test his own video as a different user). Blog visitors will be able to participate in chat by providing a temporary username right in the chat application.
