During your event, you may want to play music or share a video with audio. If you try to screen share an external app, you may notice that you're not hearing audio. Don't worry, that is how browsers work and we have solution for you!

This would apply for anyone (organizer, speaker, or attendee) that wants to share their screen and play audio on a third-party app.

Voicemeeter for PCs

This is a third party application that has been used successfully on Hopin. You are able to download the application, and you will be able to play video and audio through your PowerPoint Presentation or from another application on your device. This is not as user friendly as the Mac option, but works well.

Here is a video tutorial.

Loopback for Macs

This is a third party application that has been used successfully on Hopin. You are able to download the application, and you will be able to play video and audio through your PowerPoint Presentation or from another application on your device.

RTMP Streaming

Audio will automatically be sent to Hopin when you stream via RTMP from Streamyard, OBS, Wirecast, Ecamm, and others. This is only available on the Stage, and you do not have to use any of the above options.
You can see more information about RTMP and the Stage here.

Please check on our Sessions Tutorial and sharing slides on the Backstage to learn how to screen share browser tab with and without audio.
