    Share a YouTube video in your Video Call

    Coming on September 25th

    Video Call will soon have a new add-on enabling users to play a YouTube video during a video call. The YouTube player tool allows users to share a YouTube video without needing to share Chrome tab. All you need is the YouTube link. Please note that this is specifically for YouTube videos and is not designed to work with links from other video streaming services.

    To play a YouTube video in your Video Call:

    YouTube Video Player is an Add-on that will be enabled for your clinic/s.
    This add-on is an available tool in your call screen while you are in a Video Call. Click on Tools in your call screen to access your Video Call tools.

    Click on Youtube player if you want to play a YouTube video with other participants in your call.
    Paste in the YouTube link and click on Embed Video.
    The video will play as an embedded video for all participants in the call. The controls are synchronised, so if one user skips to a certain point in the video, the other participant/s will see this update. If a patient shares the video, the service provider also has control and can move to a certain point or replay a section as required.
