Google Hangout is the best free solution to host live broadcasts. It allows you to stream, record, bring guests, and run Q&A sessions with live audience. The main problem is that all of this happens on Google+ and not on your own site. In this article, we will show you how to embed a live Google Hangout session in WordPress.

How to Embed a Live Google+ Hangout on Your WordPress Website

I’m just testing this out now and when embedded into the WP site, I’m not able to see it live. When pressing play on the viewer, it starts playing from the beginning of the broadcast as if it were recorded. So someone joining 5 mins after the start, doesn’t see it live at the 5 min mark, they see it from the start 5 mins ago.
It’s making it really hard to manage questions, because people are asking questions in their time, which is actually after the broadcast has finished. Do you know what I mean?
I’m not sure what I can be doing wrong!
