Adobe Connect - best options

I am running an event which has podcasts, videos and YouTube clips and am looking for the best combinations and least lag:

For a video, do I:

  1. Share the mp4 file directly?
  2. Imbed the mp4 into the PowerPoint?
  3. Imbed a YouTube link into the PowerPoint?

For the podcasts do I :

  1. Imbed the link into the PowerPoint (Then it goes off into a browser window?)
  2. Share the browser window playing the podcast
  3. Download the podcast and upload to Adobe?

Sorry if this is basic but I am getting myself in knots trying to master the various permuations and wondering which ones will work best?

  • Hi Krys,

    Sounds exciting!

    Video: I would put the MP4 file in a share pod on a layout to play when I want to use it. They don't play well (or at all) when part of PowerPoint, so I find this is best. As a backup you can have the link to paste into chat for people to watch locally and/or later. Be aware when you start playing to make sure everyone is on mute to stop horrific echo. Also make sure to give people a moment at the end to allow for different bandwidth speeds. You could also for a green tick/check when the video ends.

    Podcast: Option 3, as above. 

    It's not basic at all, it's a great question and every platform handles these thigns slightly differently :D

    • Thanks Jo - amazing advice as always, I didnt know you could have multiple share pods..... this is making it soooo much easier with all the other stuff too!

  • Hi Krys.

    I'm with Jo all the way. The other option I've used in the past is the YouTube app for Adobe Connect.

    https://www.adobe.com/products/adobeconnect/apps/youtube-player.html

    It streams really well (could be smoother than playing an MP4). Downsides:

    Only good for YouTube videos

    You now have to pay for it :-(  Though you can get a free trial.
