Setting up a memorial live stream for a loved one’s funeral ensures that family and friends can attend to pay their respects from wherever they may be in the world. That said, it might be confusing to set up on your own. Here are a few tips to help you set up a live stream for your loved one’s memorial service.
The first thing you’ll need to do is ask your funeral director if the funeral home offers a live streaming service for families planning memorial services. This will make the process of setting up a live stream much easier.
If the funeral home offers this service, they’ll already have the equipment you need and the know-how to make sure your stream is available only to loved ones who want to attend the memorial service.
If you’re interested in setting up your own live stream, you’ll need to set up a YouTube account and create a live streaming event. You can schedule when this event starts and make the page private unless you’ve shared the link to it with someone. This option may give you more control over what content you live stream, but it may also present some technological challenges if it’s your first time using such a service.
