Planning a funeral is a deeply personal experience. And when you have loved ones who can’t be there in person, it presents another kind of challenge. Fortunately, live streaming a funeral has made it possible for loved ones to attend services from wherever they might be. Here are a few steps that will help you set up a private live streaming service for a funeral.
The first thing you’ll need to do is select a streaming platform. Will you be using a streaming service through the funeral home you’ve selected or setting up your own live stream? If you’ve chosen to let your funeral home handle setup, then you can focus on other aspects of planning funeral services. But if you want to set up your own live stream, then YouTube and Vimeo are going to be the most user-friendly options for you.
When you’re setting up your live stream, you can select a time to “go live” on your YouTube account. You can also make your live event private or password-protected so only the people you want there can attend. From there, you’ll need to send invitations with the link to your live stream to loved ones who will be attending remotely.
