Live Stream a pre recorded video

Hi Guys,

Is it possible to upload a pre recorded video and stream this live? Instead of using obs and selecting a video file and go live.

Hope you can help me.

Best regards,


You can upload VOD videos for on-demand playback. If you’d like to play a pre-recorded video on a live stream, this is currently not supported but will be soon.


Hi Zaid, thank you very much for your reply. When do you this feature will be supported?
Best regards, Maurice

We don’t have a precise ETA but hope to have a beta around end of March/early April.

Is it possible to do this yet? I thought I had seen it in the docs, but I’ve been doing a lot of doc reading and I’m probably getting mixed up

Hello. I was wondering if anyone on the Cloudflare team might be able to provide an update on this? Is this possible now? If not, is the feature still being worked on or have the plans for it been cancelled? Thank you!

I also need this feature. @zaid Any news, it’s been a year?

Hey, I have the same use-case and was wondering if there’s an update. If there a workaround using playback URLs (like how you can replay live-streams) please let me know!

I know it’s been a long time since this question was asked but I could also really use this feature. Any update on 2024?
