Prerequisites

Consider getting familiar with the following concepts before starting this tutorial:

Create a Web Entity

A web entity is a flat object on which you can view any website of your choosing. A web entity lets you access the internet from inside your domain.

To create a web entity:

  1. In Interface, pull up your HUD or Tablet and go to Create.
  2. Click the ‘Web’ icon to create a web entity. By default, a web entity always displays High Fidelity’s home page.

Note

Currently, only 20 web entities can run at the same time in a domain to avoid performance issues.

Display High Fidelity’s YouTube Channel

You can make the web entity display High Fidelity’s YouTube channel.

  1. In Interface, pull up your HUD or Tablet and go to Create.
  2. Select your web entity and go to the ‘Properties’ tab.
  3. Scroll down until you see the ‘Source URL’ option. Enter the High Fidelity YouTube channel URL: https://www.youtube.com/user/HighFidelityio. You should see the new page as soon as you hit ‘Enter’.
