University Athletics Live Stream

We are a small University that has started to live stream our sporting events. We would like to try to display these live streams on the digital displays that are in the Rec Center for people who are in the lobby area.

This is the website http://www.lourdesathletics.com/watch/ that we live stream from. When I try adding it to the "custom URL" of the video place holder it says that "The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported."

Does someone know how to make this work? I am still learning how to best use Rise Vision and would appreciate all the help I can get!

Custom URL in the video placeholder must be pointing to the specific stored video file. What you want to do is get the embed code for that stream and make it work with the HTML or Web Page Widgets. 

Other, pretty brutal, option would be showing the stream by using the Web Page Widget. But then you gonna need to play with the widget's scaling and padding settings to make it show exactly the video stream area and not the entire webpage.
