The width can be updated to whatever
width suits the website that the live stream player is embedded on. If the
width is changed, the height needs to also be changed so as to maintain a 16×9
aspect ratio -ie. If the width was 800 pixels the height would be 450
pixels. 

The embed is mobile responsive and
is an adaptive multi-bitrate player of 6 streams – so the viewer automatically
gets the one that best suits their device and available bandwidth. The player
also includes analytics and we will provide an analytics report post event.
