Is live streaming with recorded videos allowed?

Live Streaming Policy

Yes, using pre-recorded videos for live streaming is legal and allowed by all major social media outlets like Facebook Live, Instagram Live or YouTube Live, etc. Depending on your use case, it might be a good idea (we would recommend it) to let your viewers know that the video was recorded earlier, for example, by mentioning it in the video description or video title.

OneStream Live is approved by Facebook, YouTube, and other supported platforms. During the approval and verification process, OneStream's functionality, use cases, prerecorded video streaming, and every other aspect were thoroughly checked and vetted by the Social media platforms we intended to use for live streaming. Only after obtaining all the necessary approvals and going through essential tests was OneStream opened for public use. Therefore, you can use OneStream without any hesitancy.

Live streaming prerecorded videos is a new concept that will take time before it sees wider adoption. In cases where the person in the video does not need to interact with the audience, e.g., a music show, an interview, etc., prerecorded video live streaming is an excellent choice to enhance your ratings on Social media.
