Live streaming and video conferencing in Webex with Prezi Video

Guess what? Video conferencing and online learning just got more interesting! You’ve already used Webex for remote meetings, but now you can connect it directly to Prezi Video and share your content, ideas, and yourself, all together on the same screen. 

       
   

        
   


Live streaming with Webex and the Prezi Video desktop app

1. Start the Prezi Video desktop app and open the Webex desktop or web app. 

Please note: Both the Prezi Video and the Webex apps must be opened in order to establish the connection. Streaming is available only through the Prezi Video desktop application.

2. In the Prezi Video desktop app, there are multiple different ways to stream your content. You can either:

  • Import a PowerPoint file and convert it into a video for streaming
  • Import a Prezi presentation and convert it into a video for streaming
  • Use a previously recorded Prezi Video or a video draft
  • Or create a video from scratch within the desktop app

To access the content (template + text and visuals added) of your previously recorded videos, open your Prezi Video online dashboard. Click the dropdown in a thumbnail preview and select Video conferencing. This will open the video directly in the Prezi Video desktop app.

If you previously saved a draft project in the desktop app before recording your video, you can open it from the right sidebar when opening the Prezi Video desktop app.

3. In the Webex desktop or web app, start your meeting. Then, click the three dots at the bottom, got to the Camera settings and select “Prezi Virtual Camera” from the camera list. 

Note: If you're a Mac user and you don't see the Prezi Virtual Camera option on the list, ask you Webex team admin to do the following: Go to the the Control Hub, select Meeting in the left sidebar then click prezi.webex.com and select Configure Site on the right. Under Common Settings, select Site Options and tick the box next to Allow Mac users to use virtual cameras with validated libraries.

4. Return to the Prezi Video desktop app and select Video Conferencing. The camera in Webex will update to show the same view as in Prezi Video. This means you’re connected and you can start navigating through your content using the arrow controls in Prezi Video.

You should know: Some video apps might automatically mirror your camera. Don’t worry, this is due to a default setting and it means that your audience sees your content the right way. 

When you are done with presenting your video, just go back to the camera settings in Webex and switch back to the default webcam to stop streaming from the Prezi Video app.
