EverWebinar - How to Import a WebinarJam Session into EverWebinar

This article is for: Legacy EverWebinar Users (Customers who joined prior to Sept 2017)

WebinarJam is designed for live webinars, and once you get a high converting webinar, then you take the recording of that webinar and convert it to an EverWebinar.  

This creates that simulated experience to appear as alive webinar or live event to increase engagement with anyone watching on demand and those built-in social triggers increase conversion in your marketing.  


Converting a WebinarJam Session

First off, you need to flip the switch to EverWebinar at the top right. Then Click New Webinar. You'll be taken to the EverWebinar Configuration Screen as displayed below.
  1. Click the pencil beside "Source of your evergreen webinar" (Marked #1 Below)
  2. Press the "Previous WebinarJam Live Session" Button (Marked #2 Below)
  3. Select a Webinar and Session from the two drop downs (Marked #3 Below)
  4. If you wish to change from the YouTube player used by WebinarJam to the EverWebinar custom player click the Read More(Marked #4 Below) Then fill out the popup according to the next session
  5. Click Confirm (Marked #5 Below)

And we will take your previous WebinarJam Session and everything that happened and convert it into a live session.  You will be able to edit the chat or change the number of attendees.

NOTE: If you did not end your webinar correctly, you will not be able to convert it to EverWebinar, but you can use the YouTube link and set it up as "An External Video File"



Change to MP4 video

By changing to the EverWebinar custom player, you remove the YouTube logo and disable the video controls. This means attendees are prevented from pausing the video or going to YouTube.

To keep your WebinarJam chat and other features active, you need to upload your video to Amazon S3, Vimeo PRO, or another video storage service that allows for an MP4 link without the use of an additional player.

NOTE: DropBox, Vimeo Free or Plus, and Wistia all play videos within their own players, meaning these video services will not work.

NOTE:  If you had injected video, then you must use a video editing software to compile the YouTube video plus all the video injections into one single video file.
  1. Click the box to activate the alternative player (Marked #1 Below)
  2. Add the Video link, this should end in .mp4  (Marked #2 Below)
  3. Save. Then, you'll be taken back to the Configuration Screen.
