If you want to broadcast your own videos, simply upload them to these video providers and stream these videos from your channel, based on your own schedule.
Is it legal to use videos from these third-party video providers?
Please know that by creating a channel or playlist with videos from third-party providers like YouTube or Vimeo or Dailymotion on Strimm, you do not upload or download videos onto your account. You simply create a link to their server, which is a third-party service, where the video is located and is being streamed from. Only videos, which are allowed to be embedded and publicly shared by these video providers, can be used on Strimm. Please feel free to check our Copyright Policy.
