Livestream for deviantART by heatherkat Livestream for deviantART by heatherkat

Embedded Flash


Livestream is used by more artists everyday as a way to connect with friends and other artists. By embedding Livestream, you would offer visitors and instant way to experience your art. The flash script does not download content until you push play, which means it takes up less space than DeviantART's own sitback embed for premium members. Read more about embedding Livestream's code here: [link] and [link]


Preview Image


Currently Livestream hosts a static thumbnail image for each user's livestream channel. This is a JPEG image that is generated at Livestream.com which users would be able to use as a preview while linking it to their Livestream channel. See my userpage's webcam for an example of this in action (minus the hyperlink to my channel) or see the image itself here: [link]

The URL for the Preview Image: http://thumbnail.api.livestream.com/thumbnail?name=LIVESTREAMNAME


:new:Embed? (Please!!!)


I'm revisiting this idea, because I recently found: [link] It'd be so utterly awesome to be able to plug my Livestream Channel on my page with a simple code such as:
<da:embed profile="livestream" id="heathery" />

I know it's been a while, but I would keep the pressure on for suggesting this. I think this is a great idea and I would certainly use it all of the time!

Thanks! I really don't know where to suggest it anymore eh heh. The DA Community has been really harsh about rejecting it. Honestly I forgot I had this in my gallery.

I support your idea.
I read your original forum thread and I think people were being super unnecessarily jerky about it -_-

Aw thanks. Yeah, I'm not sure why...people on the DA Forums are pretty scary.

It's surprising that they don't have more moderators for the forums. @__@;

I think that's actually a good idea. ;) (Or they could at least link to it, if they can't embed it.) I've gone on a friend's livestream before, and it's pretty cool.
