Streaming Video: Virtual Events

Recommendations for Campus Events

Streaming a video may diminish video and audio quality through conferencing software such as Zoom. In addition, some streaming platforms have copyright protection and encryption which prevents it from playing on the conferencing platforms.  

Recommendations:

  • Have attendees watch the film independently in a separate window or prior to the event for films in streaming collections that require login authentication for each viewer. Then, use Zoom for a community discussion.  Specific restrictions are included in the descriptions.
  • Explore the open streaming options listed below.
  • Contact Diane Zydlewski (zydlewsd@emmanuel.edu) if you have questions or would like to cosponsor an event.
