To solve the single embed problem on WordPress, look at the “IX Show Latest YouTube” plugin that I now maintain.

In response to my video on why YouTube live streaming may not be the best:

Actually, you can add your events to a playlist and just embed the playlist once. That’s what we do. We also remove the audio from our background music from the feed to the live stream so we don’t have to deal with copyright issues.

I have the ability to spend the money for Pro Presenter or Easyworship. I have tested both and done quite a bit of research on the 2 programs, and have found they both do mostly the same thing. Easyworship 6 is in beta and is expected to have the full version released in a few weeks, according to the company.

The only advantage I see about Pro Presenter is that it is more technical, which is also its weakness. In our case I am leaning towards Easyworship because it is easier to use and I have a bunch of people with limited tech abilities to train in very short order.

What are your thoughts?

What does ProPresenter 5 does. Is it software that when the bible passage is being read can display it line by line

Excellent tutorial Paul! This is a great feature that I’m shocked isn’t shown off more often!
