Live Stream to LinkedIn — Schedule a LinkedIn Live Event

Follow the steps below to use LinkedIn's Go Live page to schedule an event for later.

If you schedule an event for later, LinkedIn only generates the Stream Key and Stream URL one hour before the scheduled start time. You can also do a test preview of the LinkedIn live stream or go live immediately.

You need to be eligibile to use LinkedIn Live to stream directly on LinkedIn. If you are not eligible, you can still export a recording from Riverside and post it on LinkedIn.

You must generate a new Stream Key for LinkedIn (steps 10–12) each time you do a live stream. If you refresh the LinkedIn page, you must generate a new Stream Key or create a new Live Event.

  1. Using a computer, sign in to your LinkedIn account.
  2. Go to the LinkedIn Live page.
  3. Under New Stream, select Schedule for later.
  4. Enter the desired time for the live stream.
  5. Under Create a post, enter a description and stream Title.
  6. In the upper right corner, click Schedule stream.
