Embed My Live Stream and Chat on Your Windows Desktop

If you’ve ever wanted to embed my live stream and/or chat room on your Windows desktop, it can be confusing as to how to go about it. I know that many of you have asked for tips, so I was happy to see this video done by the GTAXLLive channel.

Open up any web browser, and head to Amnesty Hypercube for Windows. Download and install the widget. Once installed, you need to right-click your desktop prior to opening it. Click “View” and make sure “Show Desktop Icons” is NOT checked.

Open up Amnesty Hypercube. At the top of your screen, you’ll see a little icon that you can click on. Choose “Create Widget from Code” from the drop-down menu. Now, point your browser towards my live stream. Once the stream loads, you’ll see a “Menu” button at the bottom of the stream. Click that, and choose “Embed”. Select and copy everything in the line that says “Live Show”.

Back in Amnesty Hypercube, click “Create Widget” from within the “Create widget from code” menu. Voila! You have my live stream on your desktop. You can move it anywhere you would like. Repeat the process to embed the chat room, only this time from the live stream, copy the embed code where it says “Chat Room”. Note that you can also embed this directly from the GeekShed network itself, as well.

That’s all there is to it! Thanks so much for making this much easier for everyone out there.
