Share External Video

TokBird Live allows you to show videos from external sources, such as YouTube.

A presenter in TokBird Live has the ability to share an external video with users in the live session.

The presenter role enables the assigned user the ability to share and control the video playback from an external video.

YouTube, Vimeo, Instructure Media, Twitch and Daily Motion URLs are supported links.

It is important to note that the video playback will not appear in the processed recordings.

By default, the first Moderator to enter the TokBird Live session is allocated the presenter role capabilities; if you are a viewer you will need to request presenter status from the moderator.

When a user has the presenter role, the presenter icon will appear over their avatar in the users list.

It is important to note that some mobile device browsers have auto playback of media turned off and the user will have to select play to engage the video playback. 

Audio from the video will play on each users’ local system – no need to share an open audio source!
