Live streaming with GoToWebinar and the Prezi Video desktop app

1. Start the Prezi Video desktop app and the GoToWebinar desktop app.

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

  • Import and convert a PowerPoint file 
  • Import and convert a Prezi presentation 
  • Use a previously recorded Prezi Video or draft video
  • Or create a video from scratch 

To access 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 in the Prezi Video desktop app.

Once you select “Prezi Virtual Camera” you’ll see the camera in GoToWebinar update to show the same view as in Prezi Video. This means you’re connected and you can start presenting by navigating through your content using the arrow controls.

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.

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