The WimLive service is dedicated to creating publishable live events in free or paid mode.
To create a live event you need to set a password for live streaming. Go to the Profile section and enter the password in the “Live service Password”.
This is important to ensure a high level of security and prevent other users from broadcasting their events on your channel.
