With eCatholic LIVE Broadcast Mode, you can automatically stream your live broadcasts in your homepage feature region. Here's how to configure the feature region to automatically display your live stream.
Access the Feature Region Settings
To begin, log in to your eCatholic-powered website, then hover your cursor over the homepage feature region and click the settings icon in the top right corner of the region (pictured below) to open the Feature Region Settings dialog.
Turn on eCatholic LIVE Broadcast Mode
Click into the Advanced tab of the Feature Region Settings, then:

With this option, the selected eCatholic LIVE player will temporarily replace the existing homepage feature region content -- photo(s) or video -- to display a live stream in the feature region during all live broadcasts.
Once finished, click the green Save button to close the Feature Region Settings dialog and preview your changes. Finally, be sure to Publish the changes to your homepage.
Not seeing your live broadcast in the homepage feature region?
Your site checks your eCatholic LIVE broadcast schedule every few minutes. If a recently scheduled broadcast isn't appearing in the feature region as you'd expect, wait 3-5 minutes, refresh your page, then check again.
