Add any YouTube video to play during your webinar. This can be done ahead of time so that you only have to play it when the big event comes! 

Note: Only videos uploaded to YouTube are supported at the moment.

To insert a video:

Step 1: Click My Webinars, found on the left menu. You will be taken to the My Webinars page.

Step 2: Find the webinar for which you want to insert videos. Click Enter Studio, found to the right of the webinar. On the next page, a popup window showing your mic and camera settings will appear. You can skip this part for now, and click Enter The Studio.

Step 3: Click the Upload Video icon on the left menu. A window will pop up. Click Add New Video, and additional fields will appear.

Note: Be sure to set videos as Public or Unlisted. Private videos may not be visible.

Step 4: Paste a YouTube URL and enter a name (the names are important should you need to differentiate between multiple videos). If you only want to show a part of the video, enter the start and end times. Otherwise, leave it blank. Click Save. 

Step 5: Immediately after inserting a video, it will appear under Saved Videos

Clicking Edit will allow you to change the name and specify the part of the video where you want it to begin. To remove a video, just click the small red button to the right.

To play the video:

Step 1: Click the Upload Video icon on the left menu to bring up all saved videos and click Open, found next to each of your video. It will immediately start playing. You can speak or mute your mic as the video plays by clicking the mic icon that shows up at the bottom of your camera feed (not on the video playing).

Step 2: Initially, it will be displayed in the bottom-left corner of your live camera feed as seen below. To maximize it and have your camera feed in the corner, double-click the thumbnail. Otherwise, click the blue fullscreen button over the video to maximize it completely, hiding your camera feed. Click here to learn more.

Step 3: You may also click the Change Layout icon on the left menu and choose your preferred layout.

Note:  Due to a restriction on iOS, inserted YouTube video on live webinars may not autoplay. Attendees on iOS devices need to click the play button to view inserted video. On the other hand, they are able to view the entire webinar along with the video on the webinar replay should you decide to leave it accessible for your registrants.
