Majority of the streams get saved automatically for users to view them. Only some of the streams with upgraded accounts have the option not to archive content they have streamed. Or the videos that have been made private. In upgraded accounts videos can be set to private where only select individuals can view it with the broadcaster’s permission and videos can also be downloaded.
Videos can be organized in an orderly manner so all users can better utilize the series of videos. An orderly series of videos based on topics or projects that concern them will make it easier for users to select a different playlist.

The streaming schedule is a good place to see all upcoming livestreams of broadcasts which are pre-announced. If a broadcaster enters stream information in the schedule, they are announced 1hr before the stream starts. A regular streaming schedule can help you express your skill better and improve your chances of landing a job.
HTML5 streaming on mobile and desktop has been part of LiveEdu.tv since Feb 2016. You can watch all live streams, videos, and playlists in HTML5 on smartphone, tablets or desktop.

Disabling Adobe Flash can do the trick, and enable our website to render videos/broadcasts in HTML5.

Premium content: Premium label is mainly assigned to live and on-demand tutorial projects that are of high quality. They are presented well by the streamer and are easy to follow by viewers. LiveEdu content team will suggest to selected streamers, sample premium projects to stream or pick current projects on the site which are suitable for premium.

Free content: Free content comprises of everything that is not Premium content. Free content can be either interactive or silent.

Adaptive Bitrate streaming
Adaptive Bitrate Streaming (ABS) is a technology that improves the entire livestreaming experience. For example, if a viewer has a slower internet connection, ABS adjusts to the available bandwidth and streams at a lower quality by transcoding the original bitrate into lower bitrates, in this case, 1.5 mbps and 0.8 mbps. Currently, all broadcasts on our website can be streamed at 2.5mbps. Now, you can watch videos at 480p and 720p.
Automatic Playlist Generation
Project based approach enables our system to automatically generate playlist. This means that streamers don’t have to invest time in creating playlist. All they have to do is stream their project and the playlist related to the project will be automatically generated.
