What is a live stream widget?

Similar to ticket widgets, this widget type will act like a portal, giving guests the ability to access the video stream. The widget will be created and installed the same way the ticket widget is through the Purplepass admin. 

Use this widget to directly embed the streaming experience onto the event website and avoid any redirects or third-party sites.

When guests go to access the event, they will use the widget. Once they click on the widget, the system will ask them to enter their order number or email address for extra security measures. These extra steps are used to verify whether they have access to that event.
