Sharing Video in Collaborate

by / Monday, 18 November 2019 / Published in Teaching with Technology

Prior to the latest update in Collaborate Ultra, we could share video but not the audio which was frustrating. Now the audio of a video is also relayed to attendees but you have to use a Chrome browser to launch a Collaborate session.

Sharing audio differs depending on whether or not you are using a Mac or a Windows machine. Windows is straightforward, but you need to share the screen and not a tab :

  1. From a Chrome browser, open the Collaborate panel and select the Share Content tab.
  2. Select Share Application/Screen.
  3. Select the Entire Screen option.
  4. Select Share

With a Mac, you can use a Chrome tab, but you need to select the ‘share audio’ check box in the bottom left of the pop-up window – see the image below:

  1. From a Chrome browser, open the Collaborate panel and select the Share Content tab.
  2. Select Share Application/Screen.
  3. Select the Chrome Tab option.
  4. Select the Share audio check box.
  5. Choose the tab you want to share from the list.
  6. Select Share.
