How can I trigger and control the on-player count-down and display event title and description?

In order to display a count-down, counting down to your next live stream, and an event title and description you would need to create a live event with start date and end date in the appropriate live channel you are using to stream through. The creation of a live event in your live channel enables not only the countdown on your player, it displays also additional information for your live event (title and description) and you receive statistics on views and video minute consumption for a particular live broadcast.

You can add a live event by opening your "control center" in your Lightcast.com account and clicking on the appropriate live channel. With the button "Add Live Event" you can easily create a live event with a start date, end date, title and description. These information will be displayed on your embedded live player together with a countdown, counting down to your next live event.
