Why use Dilmot to manage your live Q&A’s?
There are a lot of custom features that will help you manage the live Q&A:

- Use Twitter to receive questions: Just define a hashtag to import those tweets into the Q&A incoming questions list
- Invite a guest, just by sending a link to her
- Edit the content of the questions received: fix typos, enhance grammar, remove unnecessary texts
- Change the order of the questions: There may be some questions that you would like to move up or down in the list
- Make the chat private so that only the people you have shared the password with will be able to participate
- Notify to your email account the new questions that have been received
- Add images and videos to your answers
- Put a live video on top of the Q&A so the guest can answer verbally

We are very excited to give this option to you. Please let us know your experience and feedback using the Dilmot Plugin for WordPress.

Add a YouTube video inside a live Q&A


We are releasing a new feature today for Dilmot.

You asked for it: Is it possible to embed a video in an iframe inside an answer or comment in Dilmot?

Yes, you can just copy the iframe code, for example, in YouTube, like this:

Pick up the embed code from YouTube video > Share > Embed option

Pick up the embed code from YouTube video > Share > Embed option

And paste it into the answer or comment in the panel of your Dilmot Q&A stream:

You can now embed a video inside an answer or comment within the Dilmot panel

You can now embed a video inside an answer or comment within the Dilmot panel

This example for YouTube would equally apply to other providers such as Ustream or Livestream.

Embed a live Q&A session in a blog or website


There are many reasons why you would like to have a live conversation with your readers, and embed it in your existing website or blog. Today we would like to feature a live chat that is complementary to a Google Hangout. As you can see in the image below, Waiomizik is embedding the webchat right below his live streaming session done with Google Hangouts on air:

What is a Hangout on air?

A Hangout on air is a web application that belongs to Google. It is used to make a live video stream with a webcam. And this live video stream can take place between several persons. Because YouTube belongs to Google, then you can broadcast the Google Hangout on air inside of a YouTube embedded viewer.

What do you need to do something like this?

- A Google/YouTube account that will allow you to set-up the Google Hangout on Air
- A Dilmot account, that will allow you to set-up the live Q&A chat. See a tutorial here: How can I publish a live Q&A session on the Internet?

Both of these applications, Hangouts on air (YouTube) and Dilmot, allow embedding of their webapps inside of other webs, so this is all you have to do: embed the Hangout video and embed the Dilmot stream.

In the image above, you can see that there is a countdown to the start of the Hangout. When the Hangout will start, this box will show the live streaming video.

Below the Google Hangout box, there is the Dilmot stream of webchat, that will be updated automatically every time there is a new question and answer. This webchat will allow the broadcasters to receive questions that they would like to respond during the video streaming. So, Dilmot works as a complementary webapp to Hangout on air.

If you need further help, do not hesitate to get in touch with our team, and we will make our best to help you organise a successful Hangout + Dilmot live event.
