Putting the Periscope button code is easy, simply by copying and pasting the code from the periscope.tv/embed website.

Visitors to your blog or website can then easily follow you from their mobile devices, view your web profile from their desktop computers, and know when you’re broadcasting live!

The button will show “Broadcaster” when you’re not broadcasting, and “Broadcaster¬†LIVE!” when you are on-air. The colour will also change from blue to red to show your visitors that you are broadcasting.

You can actually embed several Periscope buttons to your site if you would like to promote several Periscope accounts. This is great if you have several team members who are all broadcasting on Periscope.

Here is a code example that shows two buttons, one for @winsoar and the other for @cchatter:

<p><script>window.twttr=function(t,e,r){var n,i=t.getElementsByTagName(e)[0],w=window.twttr||{};return t.getElementById(r)?w:(n=t.createElement(e),n.id=r,n.src=”https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js”,i.parentNode.insertBefore(n,i),w._e=[],w.ready=function(t){w._e.push(t)},w)}(document,”script”,”twitter-wjs”)</script><a href=”https://www.periscope.tv/winsoar” class=”periscope-on-airdata-size=”large“>@winsoar</a></p>
<p><a href=”https://www.periscope.tv/cchatter” class=”periscope-on-airdata-size=”large“>@cchatter</a></p>

 

You can add as many buttons to a page as you wish, simply be specifying the “periscope-on-air” and adding data-size=”large”, or “small” to your <a> tag.
