[collapsed title="Options"]

Here you can select whether to enable or disable comments for the event. During the live event you would likely use the Webcasting Q&A module to engage with your audience and respond to questions. We recommend to disable comments on the event during the event itself and enable comments again once VOD is available. 

To read more about disabling and enabling comments see Kaltura Webcasting - Options Tab - Set the Comments Configuration
