Overview

Moderators and presenters can share video with audio and audio files in a session from Chrome. All attendees will hear what is played. The way you share audio and video with audio depends on if you're using a Windows® or Mac OS® computer. You must use Chrome in both scenarios.

NOTE: Due to copyright restrictions, many streaming services will prevent you from sharing video content in a web conferencing platform. If you want your students to watch a copyrighted video at the same time, please explore "watch party" solutions provided by many streaming services or the Scener Chrome extension.
