Zoom: Share a Video in a Meeting

In a Zoom meeting, the Share Screen icon on the toolbar may be engaged to display content items, such as slide sets, applications, and media files.

To display a MP4 or .MOV video clip, explore the Share Screen, Advanced, and Video option. This option is specifically designed for sharing these types of videos.

As you move forward with sharing content, please keep the following tips in mind.

  • Have all content open or easily available before you start your meeting or online classroom.
  • To share a media file with sound, be sure to select the Share Sound item in the bottom-left of the Share Screen options window.
  • Explore which Share Screen option works best for your needs. Are you moving from one application to the next, and would sharing the whole desktop be more convenient? However, with this option, keep in mind that participants will view the content (files, folders, images, etc.) on the desktop.
  • Use the Security icon on the toolbar to quickly access meeting controls and grant access for participants to Share Screen, as needed.

If the Share Screen, Advanced, Video option is not available in your Zoom session, try updating the Zoom installation.
