Setting up Interactive Player on Websites

This article outlines the steps to successfully add the Stage TEN Interactive Player onto any webpage, enabling live, interactive commerce! We've provided two options on how this can be accomplished.

Note: looking to embed on a Shopify store? Use this guide instead.

Add Interactive Player

Install Sales Channel
This step is only required if the Stage TEN Sales Channel is not installed on the Shopify Store. You will need to accept the usage charges. Note: There are no monthly charges.
If it already is, then proceed to ‘Using Basic Embed’.
  1. 1.
    Go to Stage TEN Live Shopping, in the Shopify App Store.
  2. 2.
    Click Add App.
  3. 3.
    You will be prompted to create a Stage TEN account and then redirected automatically to your Stage TEN Dashboard.
Note: Any products that will be featured during a live stream must be included in both the Stage TEN and Shop Sales Channels.
Using Basic Embed
The Live Channel Embed src is a URL unique to each Stage TEN account. There is a basic version and a more enhanced, configurable version. The first set of instructions is for the basic code.
  1. 1.
    Log into the Stage TEN Pro Studio.
  2. 2.
    Click the cogwheel icon at the top right of the screen and then DESTINATIONS.
  3. 3.
    Under the Stage TEN destination locate Embed broadcast to capture your account's embed code snippet.
  4. 4.
    Click Copy and paste this information within the code of your website:
    1. 1.
      The information should resemble this (note that this is just an example): <iframe src="https://play.stageten.tv/embed/cd56ae07-7cf3-4d4c-bffa-bdeb1afccf00" title="Stage TEN Interactive Player" allow="fullscreen; autoplay" frameborder="0" style="width: 1410px; height: 600px"></iframe>
It is important to note that certain web editors and services may necessitate additional configuration within their tools. To achieve this, we recommend consulting the support resources and working closely with your web developers for guidance on how to proceed.
Using Enhanced Embed
The enhanced code allows for additional configuration, including adding holding cards for when you are not live and updating button colours.
  1. 1.
    Copy and paste the following code in your website editor.
 <center>
<div id="stage-ten-wrapper" style="width: 100%; position: relative">
  <iframe
    src="https://play.stageten.tv/embed/CHANNEL_ID?splashImageURL=HORIZONTAL_IMAGE&splashImageURLVert=VERTICAL_IMAGE&accentColor=HEX_CODE"
    title="Stage TEN Interactive Player"
    style="width: 100%; height: 100%; position: relative; left: 0; top: 0"
    allow="fullscreen; autoplay"
    frameBorder="0"
  >
  </iframe>  <script>
    const updateSize = () => {
      const stageTenWrapper = document.getElementById('stage-ten-wrapper')
      const currentWidth = stageTenWrapper.clientWidth
      if (currentWidth > 1000) {
        // Desktop
        stageTenWrapper.style['height'] = 'min(calc(' + Math.round(currentWidth * 1.1).toString() + 'px - 600px), calc(100vh - 150px))'
      } else {
        // Mobile
        stageTenWrapper.style['height'] = 'min(' + Math.round(currentWidth * (16/9)).toString() + 'px, calc(100vh - 50px))'
      }
    }
    window.addEventListener('load', updateSize)
    window.addEventListener('resize', updateSize)
  </script> </div>
 </center>
