This article lists four options for sharing pre-recorded videos with your audience.
Method 1: Upload the video on YouTube
After that, they can choose Share Screen -> Chrome Tab -> Choose the YouTube video. (The speaker who wants to share video don't need to mute themselves, but need to have a quiet environment)
Here are the detailed instructions:
Click on Share Screen
Click Chrome Tab -> Choose the YouTube link they want to share
After they play the video, please display the video in full screen, as shown below:
Below you will see how the event will appear to attendees during the event. With this format, our system will be able to record the video as displayed. In this way, we can record everything.
Method 2: Keep the video in Speaker's desktop:
They choose Share Screen -> Entire Screen-> Choose the video to play. (The speakers who want to share the video shouldn't mute themselves, but need to have a quiet environment)
Method 3: Automatically play the video from our end
You can send firstname.lastname@example.org the video as MP4 file, and also set up a Talk session for this video. You can assign yourselves as a speaker, but don't worry, you don't need to speak. Once we get the video, we will upload it as "Recordings" to that session. When Attendees enter the event page, they will be able to watch it anytime they want. They need to click "Playback" to watch it.
You can see this example below. Sexy Liberal Tour is one of our events. The organizer asked us to upload their video before the event start, and attendees can watch it during the event, and also after the event by click on the "Playback."
Method 4: Upload your own pre-recorded videos and share them in the live-streaming sessions.

Step 1. Click Manage inside your organizer dashboard.
Step 2. Click into Step 5 - Attachments
Step 3. Click Add Video. You will see the video uploading screen.
Step 4. Upload the video you want to share.

Step 6. When you go inside any sessions as a speaker of the event, you will be able to access the videos inside. Click Share video from attached files.
