Share a video during a Live event

In the Live Studio, the Overlay Videos tab shows all uploaded videos. From here, you and other presenters can preview them, play them for the audience, and stop sharing them. 

You can share a video as an overlay - in a separate window that covers the slides and video player - or play the video inline, in the video player. Once the event is archived, the recording includes the videos as they were seen by the audience during the live event.
