Keys to success
- Broadcaster is a supplement to your existing screen sharing or teleconference software. Attendees will only be able to see the specific PDF, PPT or Video content that the Broadcaster is displaying on screen.
- Favorite or create a collection of the items you want to present as part of your broadcast to be able to quickly navigate back to the items you'd like to display.
- When you begin playback of a video, we recommend muting the Mediafly video player, and/or mute your own mic.
- Pause the video if you need to speak. Don't talk while you are playing back a video; otherwise your voice will be at the same volume as the video playing back. Best thing to do is hit pause, wait a second or two and then begin talking before resuming.
- Present content from a single Mediafly tab or window in your browser. Using multiple Mediafly tabs to present is not supported.
- Attendees can control Volume and Fullscreen on their Broadcaster session
