Live Streaming vs Pre Recordings [Which is Better?]


What is Live Streaming?

Live streaming is when the streamed video is sent over the Internet in real time, without first being recorded and stored


What are Pre Recordings?

A video production that was recorded prior to being broadcasted on TV or Social Media.


There are many pros for live streaming. Here are some:

  1. High-Quality Streams

  2. Greater Audience Potential

  3. Wide Variety of Content Uses

  4. Ease and Convenience

  5. Analytics Tracking

The Pros to Pre Recordings are:

  1. Ability to Edit

  2. Increased Flexibility

  3. Fewer Technical Malfunctions


A con that stands out in Pre Recordings is the Lack of Audience Engagement. If the event isn’t live there can be difficulties to start a discussion about the topic in real time. A con that stands out in regards to Live Streamings are the technical issues that could come about. The cons between the both are very similar, however it’s ultimately up to the person making the decision between Live Streaming and Pre Recorded Broadcast.
