Add and Play Videos in a Webinar

Insert pre-recorded videos to play during a live broadcast.

Updated over a week ago

You can play any video from your library during a live webinar. This includes videos uploaded from YouTube or your own drives, as well as replays of past live webinars hosted on WebinarNinja.

You can upload videos in the webinar studio or in your media library.

Note: Supported file extensions are WEBM, MOV, MP4, M4V up to 2 GB

To play videos

Step 1: Click the play icon on the left sidebar to open your video library.

Step 2: Choose a video from Uploaded, YouTube, or Replays then click Add Video.

The video will immediately start playing in the bottom left corner. Click the arrows over the recorded video stream to make it fullscreen hiding your live video stream (and any other stream).

To exit fullscreen, click the arrows again.

Your attendees will now be watching your video!

Note: It's not possible to pause/play videos in a webinar.

To stop the video or close the stream, click the play icon on the sidebar.

While the video plays your attendees would still be able to hear you. If you want, you can temporarily mute your mic from settings.
