    We are currently migrating from Adobe Connect to Bb Collaborate Ultra and have had several requests from academics to be able to embed a video into a Collaborate session that synchronises for all watching (e.g. when the academic controls whether the video is being played, paused this is reflected for all participants.

     

    Currently the only way to play a video for all attendees is through screen share and the audio must be output by the presenters computer - this degrades the quality and is a hassle for the presenter. It'd be good if a presenter could input an embed code / URL for common video services.
