Moderators control what participant is displayed on main screen (speaker) and can also add an additional participant (inquirer) to ask questions or assist.
Selected roles can create free/paid rooms and are automatically moderators of these rooms.

Participants can change their public status (i.e. request to speak), upload and download room files, text and video chat depending on setup permissions.

This plugin uses the WordPress username to login existing users. From plugin settings wordpress admin can configure who will be able to use this (everybody, site members, user list).

Includes a widget that displays active rooms (with number of participants) and presentation access link.
A Video Presentation page is added to the website and can be disabled from settings.

There is a settings page with multiple parameters and permissions (what users can access – all, only members, predefined list of users and roles). Can be used to setup membership sites.

BuddyPress integration: If BuddyPress is installed this will add a Video Presentation tab to the group, where users can video chat and watch the presentations realtime in group room.
Only group admins have moderator and presentation privileges.

Transcoding: If enabled, moderator can transcode video of any participant as room video that shows when room is accessed from iOS.

Special requirements: This plugin has requirements beyond regular WordPress hosting specifications: a RTMP host is needed for persistent connections to manage live interactions and streaming. More details about this, including solutions are provided on the Installation section pages.

Desktop Sharing / Screen Broadcasting

If your users want to broadcast their screen (when playing a game, using a program, tutoring various computer skills) they can do that easily just by using a screen sharing driver that simulates a webcam from desktop contents.

Resulting videos can be managed and imported with Video Share VOD WordPress Plugin .

Reviews

Easy to reach my customers

As a personal trainer I can’t be in person with all my clients, so this is a great tool for me to be with them.
I had no problem using or installing it, and as I said: I’m not on the IT domain 🙂

Good Plugin

This plugin is easy to learn it and therefor easy to use.
It also has all the feature you need for a live transmission.

Very good live presentation

Really good plugin for one to many live presentation
very easy to install, it also setup the needed pages to manage rooms and start broadcasting.
It ships with a lot of options for user limitation (who can create and access rooms for example)
it uses flexible shortcodes to embed presentation in the site.
Please remeber that you need an RTMP server to stream your videos, anyway they offer guides on how to install it

I would have preferred some different payment gateway for monetizing my presentation (Paypal and Stripe for examle), but it only offers myCRED to sell access to rooms
