Instead of screen sharing your video, you can now share it directly from your computer! This feature is available on all plans.
How to Share Long-Form Videos:
1. Inside the studio, click the Present button (this used to say Share Screen).
2. Click Video file, then select the file from your folder on your computer (MP4 and MOV files). It will automatically be added to the stream (unless you disable this in settings). You can pause, play, scrub through it, and change the layout!
There is NO file size or length limit!
Benefits of Sharing Video
Unlike screen sharing, this feature was built for sharing videos -- the quality of your video should increase greatly. You can now share an unlimited amount of videos -- unlimited in count, size, and length. You can even queue up several videos to be played, like in a playlist.
Unlike the Video Clips feature, these videos do NOT get saved to your account. The purpose of this feature is to share a long pre-recorded segment into your live stream or live event or talk about a specific video with your guests.
Video Sharing FAQsAre my video files automatically added to my broadcast?
You can queue multiple videos (up to 10) and manually play each sequentially. These will not auto-play as a playlist would. The “Automatically add shared screens/videos to stream” box in settings must be disabled to achieve this.
Should I use the video file sharing feature or the video clips feature?
