A hybrid webinar is a pre-recorded webinar - during which you can interact with attendees live via chat. It can only have a single schedule which may not be convenient to some potential attendees because of time zones or busy lifestyles. You can create separate hybrid webinars for each date and time you like to offer then add a link to the available schedules on the registration page.

Create a Hybrid Webinar
Step 1: From My Webinars, click the blue Create New Webinar button.
Step 2: Select the type of webinar you want. In this case, Hybrid.
Step 3: Fill in the webinar details, starting with a title.
Choose the date and start time and the duration. The default time zone can be changed in Account Settings.
Note: You can continue interacting with attendees even after the video ends. There is no duration limit with a Hybrid webinar.
Step 4: Click Add Video Files to upload a video, or choose one from your library.
Under the Add New Video tab, you can either add a YouTube video or upload your own.
To add a YouTube video, enter its URL on the space provided, then click Add YouTube Video.
Note: The video must be set as unlisted or public on YouTube, not private.
On the next page, enter the video name. If you want to show only a part of the video, set a start and end time. Then click Add Video.
To upload your own file, click Browse Files.
Note: Supported video files are *.webm, *.mov, *.mp4, or *.m4v with a size limit of 2 GB.
On the next page, enter a video name, then click Add Video.
You can also select from previously uploaded videos or past live webinar replays under the Select From Library tab.
Step 5: Click Create Webinar.
Important note: Create separate Hybrid Webinars for each date and time.
Here's what it will look like on your webinar page. Since this is the same webinar, the thumbnail and the title are the same. The order of time can be checked on the left side.
The created webinar is a draft. Publish the webinar to get it ready for registrations or to make it public. The webinar can be edited even after publishing until 30 minutes prior to the start time.
Edit the registration page
You only need to edit one registration page that you will use as the main landing page.
Click Options to the right of the webinar, then select Registration Page from the drop-down menu.
Once you're in the page builder, you need to select a template to add more information to your webinar. Click on the preferred template then hit "Select".
In this area, click the blank space to show the settings for this section.
In this example, we add 3 sections but you can add more as you prefer. Click "Update" to confirm.
Edit the section below for each webinar schedule.
Note: You need to open a new tab then go to your webinars page again to get the registration links easily. Click My Webinars to open a new tab.
In My Webinars, click on the Share button to get the registration link for each webinar, then click Copy Link.
In the page builder, highlight the text where you will paste the registration link. Click the link icon then paste the registration link on the blank space shown, then click Save.
The registration page with the hyperlinked text will appear like this.
