How to create replays of live streams

Last updated:
March 6, 2024

Once your live event has concluded it’s easy to create a replay of your stream. In Recast Publish find your event under Live Events > Past, and select ‘create replay’.


On the next page you have the option to crop your replay. Below the video player, drag the two blue markers to your required start and end time. You can also move through the video using the white playhead on the timeline.

Tip: If you need more precisely timed cuts, you can enter specific crop times using the time selection boxes either side of the timeline.

Click next once you are happy with the crop on your replay


Publishing the Replay

On the next screen you’ll see our regular video upload form. We automatically carry over all the information from your live stream such as the description, price and geoblocking settings. We also carry over the title and add ‘Replay’ to the start of it. You can edit all of this information before publishing your replay.

Like video uploads, you have the same options to publish the replay as soon as its ready, publish it manually later or at a scheduled time.

Publishing the Replay

Create a widget for your replay

As a reminder, the widget for your live event will not automatically show your replay. To show the replay on your website, create a new Embed Widget containing this on demand content. Learn more in our "Embed Recast into your website" guide.
