Play pre-recorded videos in your Airmeet

• July 30, 2020


peakers’ internet speed is one of the crucial factors that decide your virtual event’s success. Also, this is the top challenge reported in virtual events across platforms. It’s frustrating if such issues cause delays and make an impact on the entire event.

So here’s an opportunity to get away with speaker-side internet issues. Get pre-recorded videos from your speakers and stream it live. It also offers your speakers the freedom to take it at their own pace and contribute to your event. If you’re hosting an all-day-long event or bringing in four or more speakers, it’s ideal to take this route.

On another note, onboarding popular speakers is a challenging task for most organisers. Getting their time for the event is no mean feat. But with this feature, it is no more a worry. Get great pre-recorded content from speakers around the world and play it during the event. You don’t have to compromise on your virtual event’s content quality.

Lastly, I have an interesting idea to help you monetise through this feature. Encourage sponsors to play their brand videos between sessions. Include this in your list of marketing opportunities for sponsors and get paid.

Here’s a quick 4-step guide to using this feature in Airmeet:

  1. Get into your dashboard and select the appropriate Airmeet.
  1. Click on the “Stream pre-recorded video” tab from the LHS and upload your video.
  1. Go to the event page, visit backstage, and you’ll find your video in the “Videos” section in the RHS.
  1. Play, pause and resume your video in a click of a button during your live session.

What is the limit size for videos to be uploaded? Thanks

Thank you for your question, Joaquim. For the best experience, the video size should not be more than 2 GB and the format should be MP4. Hope that helps.

Is there a limit to the length of prerecorded videos we can play? Also, is there a way to auto-play a video at the session start time?

I have a small upstream internet connection. Most of my videos that I want to load in the library are on YouTube. Can I load the video library from services like YouTube or Vimeo, rather than from my computer?

I have Airmeet Summit Platform. I am doing an Expo with almost 100 pre-recorded presentations. All of these are huge files. I would like to upload them to the platform from the Cloud, from Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, etc. without uploading from my office computer where my upstream speed is about 2 meg.

How can I upload videos to Airmeet Summit video library from the cloud?

I am presenting a deck containing an embedded video that has audio. Are there any settings I need to be aware of when sharing my screen (like a “Share computer audio” checkbox)?

When I play a pre-recoreded video in a session my audience hear the sound of the video but not the image. They see a black screen.
What could be the problem?
