How to Share Videos on Zoom

Share Videos on Zoom: Zoom represents today one of the most used services for business videoconferencing or even, more simply, for conversations between friends and family. On any occasion, however, it may happen that you have to share the screen of the device in use with the interlocutor.

Fortunately, Zoom allows you to do this from both a computer and a mobile device. For this reason, today we are going to see just how to do it.

How to Share Videos on Zoom on Computer

To share your screen using Zoom on your computer, you will obviously need to start a conversation first.

  • Click on “New meeting” to start a new conversation
  • Add new users to the videoconference by clicking on “Participants” and then on “Invite”

The video will start immediately and can be improved by adding various options such as the microphone audio or that output from the computer itself.

All additional features will be shown on the “You are sharing your screen” screen. Everything can then be stopped by simply clicking on “Stop sharing” at the top.
