One great advantage of using Hopin for your events is that you can switch from live videos to pre-recorded videos across the major video segments of Hopin: Stage, Sessions or Expo. This guide will show you how to do that for Sessions.

Method 1: If your video is hosted on YouTube, you can use the YouTube Sharing feature to share your video while doing a live presentation.

Tip: How to use Youtube Sharing in Sessions.

Ensure this feature is enabled while setting up the session. You can enable or disable it by changing the settings of the particular session through the event dashboard.

Method 2: Share your screen in a live presentation.

  • Open the video in a dedicated Chrome tab and click on the screenshare icon at the bottom. On the popup window, click on Chrome Tab (or the entire screen on PC)
  • Select the tab with the video. Be sure to check the share audio box so the attendees can hear the audio. Click share to start sharing.

You can also use a third party application for your attendees to be able to hear the audio clearly. You may click here to view our support article on sharing audio for more information.

Note: Firefox browser doesn’t support sharing a tab with Sound yet.
