We recommend sharing a link to the video in the chat
At this time video playbacks are not support by BigBlueButton and the built-in screen sharing in BigBlueButton is not suited for sharing sharing a video -- the frame rate is too slow and it does not transmit audio from the video.
To share a video with users, we recommend:
- First making your video available via a public link (such as an unlisted video on YouTube).
- Then, during the class, pasting a link to the video in the chat and invite students to click to view.
The recording will capture this link in the chat as well. This means, later on, when users are viewing the recording, they will be able to view video by clicking the link in the recorded chat.
