How to use our services

## Player

It’s really simple to use our streaming services. For each event you are given a unique identifier. In this example, the identifier is example.

To access the player, simply browse to https://cdevents.net/view/example

The player can also be embedded in an existing page, using code similar to this

<iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="506" mozallowfullscreen="" msallowfullscreen="" oallowfullscreen="" scrolling="no" src="//cdevents.net/view/example" webkitallowfullscreen="" width="900"></iframe>

You should store this information securely, since it is effectively the username and password to allow anyone to stream to your event. It does not need to be shared with your viewers or published anywhere.

For example, in OBS you would configure this information like so:
