In this guide, you’ll learn how to share a video during a Zoom meeting.

Zoom screen sharing allows you to share the desktop, window, application, or audio/video. If audio is an important part of your shared content, you can also send the computer’s audio to the remote attendees directly when sharing. The high-quality audio will produce a more professional and immersive sharing experience.

How to Share a Video on Zoom

  1. Prepare the video by opening it in either a media player or your web browser. Note: You may want to do this before the meeting begins.
