Apart from sharing your screen, you also have the option to share YouTube videos in a Session.
To enable this feature first of all find the event you want to edit within your organization dashboard in your Hopin account.
Then go the Event Dashboard > Venue > Sessions, create or edit a session and under Advanced Settings check the Enable YouTube sharing box.
While in the session, click on the Share Audio and Video Button.
Once you’re on screen, you’ll see a YouTube icon at the bottom of the screen, click it to share a video.
Then, copy and paste the entire YouTube video URL into the YouTube URL field and click on Share Video.
The video will start sharing for all attendees in the Session.
- In a moderated session, only the Organizers & Moderators can use the YouTube sharing feature, while in an unmoderated session, anyone sharing their audio and video can share a YouTube video.
- It's recommended for the user sharing the YouTube video to wear headphones and/or mute themselves while the video is playing to avoid echoing.
- This feature only supports individual YouTube videos and YouTube Live streams. YouTube playlists are not supported at this time.
- YouTube videos shared during the session will not be included in the Session recording.
